Oh, thanks for correcting me. Dante, where are rest of the pics bro, especially interior pics? 7 days and no activity on this thread, is'nt it weird?

Keep the drool maal coming... I usually like white, black or red color on cars but now, I can surely say that speed yellow Cayman is growing on me.

I kept on waiting for you to get a new card for your camera. And I think it is terrible to break the flow of media in any threads with ooohss and awwwss If you want I can comment on each of your ealier pictures. Cheers!

You did the stretch to and fro Mumbai, do tell us about the difference you felt wrt your earlier ride and how different and difficult was it to maneuver in traffic and were there heart warming and heart stopping moments?

Keep the pictures and videos coming. I am waiting for your trip around the car in true teacher and pupil fashion. It will be great fun for everyone on Tbhp and also on Youtube all the Cayman crowd will get introduced with TBhp that way.

@Dante powder coating the rims black will generate stunning results!

On a different note you can also opt for these thin spoke gorgeous 19in rims from the new Boxster Spyder.Each rim weighs lighter than 10Kg!

Each rim 'lighter than 10 kg' or 'lighter by 10 kg' ?

AyAn is correct. Each wheel/rim on the Boxster Spyder weighs less than 10 kgs. The ones on the regular Boxster weigh 15 kgs each.

AyAn, I'm not sure if those wheels are available as an option on any of the Porsche models. They are specific to this Boxster Spyder only! They look stunning though! And yes, they weigh under 10 kilograms each!

However, Dante can go in for something similar. There are Porsche SportDesign wheels available which also have thin spokes and would look great if powder-coated black!

Thanks. Service as i have read on porsche blog sites, is after 20000 kms.
But the shreyans are telling 10000kms. I may do it by 12000kms.

Service would only be oil and coolant change. I am expecting Rs 30000/-

Thanks buddy. I guess that red may be 1st gear limiter?? Though 1st gear goes upto 55km.

@Ayan thats the reason i am doing powder coating, it will transform the look completely.

But after changing the rims and then powder coating it would hide the design of the spokes.. may be. Thats the reason i am not sure that i would change the wheels.

Anyways here's a 200km/h video suhaas and all.
Sorry for the quality. Tell me how you like it and i would do a next run in a couple of days and upload a new one.

Yeah loads of fun! I was at 4000 rpm in 6th. Kinda like floating..
Heart beats rise! My heart never thumps so fast but in this machine, i feel nirvana.
Ya the noise is very loud. From inside even if you have music you can hear the engine roar.

Answer: This video was taken by iphone 2g transfered it to the pc i don't know why did it came vertically.
