    Saying Hello As New Porsche Owner

    So.. Hello!

    Just picked up my 987 from Park Place on Wednesday, joined the PCA and Planet 9 yesterday.

    2008 Ruby Red Cayman

    Be interested to know if the former owner lurks these boards.

    A little about me: I'm new to Porsche but not boxer engines. I worked for Subaru for several years in a lot of different roles. Marketing, Sales, Promotions & Events, and Parts. I've been a motorhead for some time and look forward to conversing with like minded folks.

    Cheers!

    Thanks! I've had 83 looks and you're the first to say hello. Who did you deal with over at Park Place?

    Welcome! That is a beautiful color. Please tell us more about your car. Do you have pictures? And, if I don't mention it someone will soon enough, clear side markers?

    Thanks, Palio!

    As a matter of fact, I DO have clear side markers. Don't have them in the picture I uploaded as I took it from the dealer site. They installed them as a courtesy when detailing the car! They just look right. Sand Beige interior, bi-xenons, 18" Cayman S wheels, deviating interior color (black), sound package, and just a car that makes me smile.

    I'll get a pic up soon. Thanks again for the welcome.

    Re: Saying Hello As New Porsche Owner

    Thanks! It took me a second look to be "sure", but he color really is fantastic. The Porsche guys were very complimentary about the color as they said it was quite rare and most of the buyers in Dallas go the silver, white, or black. There was only one Guards red in the entire line and the rest were all b, s, or w.

    On another note, I paid my PCS dues on Saturday and was wondering how I get the "badge" next to my name. Any help?

    Look on the upper left where it says User CP, then at the top Profile>Edit Your Details. There is a box for PCA membership, and I think you also have to go to the Membership section and check the box to display it. I think that's right, but at least it's on the right track!

    Thanks, Palio. I found it by your direction and noticed I need my PCA number which I don't have yet. Said it would be about 2 weeks before I get my cards.

    It was an even trade (mileage wise). I gave them one w/ 35k and got one with 35k. I do live up in Dallas. Up up in Dallas, actually. I am in the Northern Burbs. Plano, Allen, McKinney, Frisco area.

    Of course, Jason. Remember you well. You certainly lent to the great experience we had and were in line with the courtesy and genuine excitement with which our purchase was treated. Tell England hello for my wife and I.

    Did you guys leave the yellow 3M on the Mazda?
