What, no pics? Sounds nice
Picked up 2006 Cayman S in Atlanta yesterday, and enjoyed a nice 9 hr ride home.
I love the car! Awesome machine..the Coco Brown interior is great, much better in Person. It goes well with Artic Silver.
The car came loaded. Love the PASM and chrono options, they definitely transform the car.

Congrats! Standing by for pics
Added a few pics, and will post more soon. I am going to enjoy my ride to work tomorrow morning. To that subject, anyone have a good cup holder solution? I don't think I can trust those Porsche cup holders in DC/VA traffic.
I have following options from the invoice list:
2. Sport Chrono
4. Preferred Package - not sure what's included in this
5. Heated seats
6. Bi Xenons
7. Auto Dim and heated mirrors
8. Rear Window wiper
9. Clear bra on the hood, door handles and mirrors
10. electronic seats with lumbar supports
11. 18' Boxster S wheels..

Don't forget to check out the mid-Atlantic regional section for local Cars & Coffee events where you can meet other owners.

2007 Blue Slate Infiniti G35s 6-speed
Check out ultimatecupholders.com for the cupholders. I've had the BMW E39 version for 7 years and loved them. Got the 986 version for my '12 Boxster and they work great.
Sweet Cayman, BTW. Congrats!
Congrats and welcome, nepats! You're gonna love this car more each day! I can't wait to see the Interior color against the exterior color pics... make sure you get the Cocoa against the Silver. It sounds like a great color combo.
Oh, and stop by all the Starbucks you can find and ask for a 'stopper'; one of them will finally have them. Although, even with the 'stopper' inserted, I drive carefully and slowly with one hand holding the coffee whenever I know about upcoming bumps in the road!

Thanks for the cup holder suggestion and Mid Atlantic link! I have updated the original with few more pics. My friends say that the clutch feels heavy in the car. Are the clutches heavy in these cars? My car has only 28K miles on it.
Great looking car! I love the silver/cocoa combo. That may be my new favorite color scheme. The clutch on these cars does feel a little different than most I have owned. I don't think it is necessarily "heavy" but, maybe it's engagement range is a little longer. I am quickly getting used to it though.
Cool! Another Arctic Silver in the group!

Coming from the BMW world, the clutch definitely is stiffer. Shouldn't it loosen with mileage? I wonder if the break flush will help.
VERY Nice - ConGrats
Man that is a classy looking interior, congrats and happy driving
Beautiful, Congratulations! Just this last weekend there was a silver/cocoa Cayman at an autocross in Baltimore, and it is indeed a stunning color combination.

Welcome to the cocoa club! Nearly four years in I have not tired of it at all, and I continue to get compliments on the looks.
Enjoy your ride!

I love these cars!!!
Congrats on the new ride!
Regarding the clutch, mine feels a lot stiffer than anything I've driven before. My 5'2", 90lb GF was struggling with it.
You'll get used to it very quickly. I really like it now. Makes it feel like you have to "drive" the car at all times, which is a good thing.
