If you're going to spend $1+k on carbon fiber interior, spring for the sport design steering wheel at only $250.:)

I like the SportDesign steering wheel, and I could budget for it, but I took the SportDesign steering wheel off, over concerns relating to the sun reflecting off of it.

I keep going back and forth over dead cow or carbon fiber, but I gotta have something covering the rest of the shiny metal in the interior.

What schuy said above. Otherwise a nice build. I see the base Boxsters now have black front-intake guards instead of body colored guards?

Where will you take delivery?

For this vehicle's role, I would be more likely to spend money on PTV, than swiveling headlights.

Besides, the 2015 BMW I just bought Mrs. X73, already has swiveling Xenon headlights, if we need something like that at night.

The PTV was my last 'extra' option before the car locked. Its a good one , since can't be easily retrofitted latter.

Haven't decided between Zuffenhausen or Leipzig.

We toured Porsche in Zuffenhausen in October, when we were in Europe for a month to do Mrs. X73's European delivery. That said, I'm still leaning towards the traditional Zuffenhausen European Delivery.

Leipzig would be a new experience, but the opportunity to do track time in and of itself would not be enough to make me decide on Leipzig, as I have been an expert-licensed road racer and road racing instructor. But I'm also not ruling it out.

I guess the deciding factor would probably be which one fits our logistical plans best- we're planning on doing another month in Europe, to see England, Ireland, and the Isle of Man. Mrs. X73 has already rented a house on the Isle of Man for two weeks (practice week and race week) for the 2016 Tourist Trophy.
