Hi Mcfloppins, fellow Boxster S owner myself, you might have more luck on :

http://www.boxa.net

I`m on there under the same name thumbsup

911uk is an awesome website/forum, but not really focussed on the Boxster, more the 911. thumbsup

Did you mean "first car" or first Porsche?

Either way, this might help.

Actually its really not bad its actually very inexpensive I'm from the us and just found out about this forum. To give a perspective a 2000 mustang gt is 520$ a month for insurance but the boxster is 230 a month
