Newbie - First time Porsche owner from Edinburgh

Hi folks, 

I've just received my Porsche Club GB membership and I'm the very happy new owner of a 981 Boxster GTS. I did lots of research to find the best replacement for my Honda S2000 which I was very much attached to. 

I decided on the 981 GTS and found a great example at Porsche Tonbridge. I've done about 1500 miles so far and I'm loving every minute of it.

I've also picked up some Carrera S wheels that are currently being stored at Porsche Glasgow. I’m planning on fitting them when the weather gets a bit better, and considering painting them satin platinum. 
 
Looking forward to meeting fellow enthusiasts and doing many more happy miles.



 
 I've changed the plate since this picture was taken to X90 BPM :)

    I don't think I've ever been happier to have quite such a long trip! :) I took it back through the Peak and Lake Districts and made a bit of an adventure of it.
