Although I got my baby late last Fall I managed to put 3000 kms on her before putting her to bed for the winter. This season will obviously be a different story. This is my second Boxster, the first was a 2008 S that I squeezed 243,000 kms out of before the engine bore scored. It was a tough call to sell her, but I do love the 718 and we had planned touring Canada鈥檚 east coast for the month of June...maybe next year!

Manual trans, GT Silver, Espresso roof and interior.

Now to start creeping the forums!

Congrats and welcome to the forum from a fellow Canuck :)

The east coast is on our list as well.
We did it a little over 10yrs ago and figure its time for another run next year.
The Cabot Trail is an amazing drive that rivals some of the best roads anywhere.

Finally someone with the "natural leather" seating! (Espresso color is only in the costlier "natural leather" selection.) I heard that that leather is different / better quality than the standard full-leather. What is your take on it? Would love to see some close-up photos of it as well.

The leather is gorgeous...very subtle, soft. Not sure how well it will hold up but I love it. Here are some photos from the sales ad (I bought the car used after an elderly gentleman traded it for a McLaren because his knee did not like the manual trans. Only 1,100 Kms after he took European delivery
