Just wanted to introduce myself. I am a first time Porsche owner, just bought my 2006 Cayman S 2 weeks ago and have been loving every minute of driving it, owning it, talking about it. I did my homework when shopping for a used Cayman and found an amazingly kept 2006 at a local dealership.

Previous car history: 1985 Mazda 626, 1994 Honda Civic DX, 2000 Mazda b2300, 1998 Acura Integra GSR, 2001 Mazda b2300, 1998 Acura Integra GSR (Again).

Question: Can you identify these wheels? They are 20 inch... and I do not think they are OEM - they might just have the OEM center caps...

Congrats and welcome - you will love this car! :cheers:

Be sure and check out the San Diego region of the PCA. Really nice people and they have lots of great driving events. Autocrosses at Qualcomm stadium are a great place to start to explore the limits of this fantastic car.

Nice, I suggest you bump it up to two a days till the spring! Get a couple dozen more drives in! lol

Thanks for the post, looking forward to getting to know this car more. Any more tips would be appreciated.

Welcome to Planet 9. I like the cayman labels on your car. My first porsche was a 2003 base boxster. I'm very happy going to the 987S. I've had my cayman now for over a year. Lots of interesting topic threads, and opinions, on this site.

Have fun driving your car. I got another month before it goes under the car cover.

Thanks for the post. I too like the decals, though I am most likely removing the one across the windshield - it obstructs my view. The one thing I am replacing soon are the wheels, they are 20s and I want lighter wheels with some more rubber.

Bummer that you will have to store your Cayman S under a cover... having a beast like that hibernate would drive me crazy.

Congrats. I'm usually not a fan of 19"+but your car handles 20" rather well.

Thanks - I too am usually not a fan, but these 20s looked good. I am in the market for some OEM wheels, just need to decide which ones, haha.

Let me know if you have any suggestions... looking to get lighter and faster.
