Lightbulb Tech Quiz Surprise (with a Chance to Win)

TECH QUIZ SURPRISE!

Your Site Team is at it again! Starting today, we will begin a weekly random selection of a Tech Quiz participant (correct answers only) and send that member a Limited Edition Porsche Boxster DVD. ---- How about that!

Starts right now, and goes forward for the next 12 weeks. This is a giant reason to participate in the weekly Tech Quiz Challenge! Remember that only correct answers are eligible for the DVD, so (maybe) a little research before you answer. Good luck to all!

Boxster Register Site Team
Bob, John and Miles

This is a big THANK YOU"ll.
I must be the first to receive the wonderful Boxster DVD. I enjoy each week of answering the questions. I must admit I only cheated once to look up the answer, I am a good guesser. I love this site and look most everyday. I get a lot of great info from the site. This is my first Porsche, 2008 LE S #95. I have never attempted to change oil or even take off the wheels to wax my rims, but now I an getting pretty bold after reading the site since I became a member a few months ago. I would always do stuff on my British cars but the Porsche seemed to much of a challange; my thoughts are rapidly changing. I am ready to buy a new jack and tourque wrench to take off my wheels.I get more out this site than my local club. I am learning my way around the site, I want to try and post pictures of Porsche events that I have attended.
Thanks Again

Wayne,

You are very welcome, we are happy to be able to share the LE Boxster DVD's. Your nice comments are also appreciated, all of what you said is the primary reason for our new forum.

We can all thank PCA for providing us this opportunity, without their total support we could not exist. We can also thank Porsche AG (the factory) and Porsche Cars North America (the US distributor) for their support, they contributed the LE DVD's for us to use as our gifts.

Please continue your support for the site, and we all look forward to seeing your pictures and other reports.

Bruno

Wayne, thanks for the nice comments. Sure glad you like the DVD and of course the Tech Quiz's. We try to keep them interesting and hope everyone has a learning experience. Sometimes they are a little hard to answer but hopefully once everyone sees the answer, if they got it wrong, then they will have learned sometime about their Boxster and Porsche's in General.

Now go out and buy that nice jack and torque wrench, learn what your Boxster is telling you each time you drive.

My best to you!

Thumbs up Re: Tech Quiz Surprise (with a Chance to Win)

I was really surprised to get a small package from the Registry shortly after joining. In it was the DVD! What a cool surprise. My son and I really enjoyed watching every bit of it.

Now I look for the weekly quiz and take a shot at answering it.

Thanks for the prize and for the great website. Your hard work shows and is greatly appreciated!!

Thumbs up Re: Tech Quiz Surprise (with a Chance to Win)

Vielen Dank to Bob, John, and Miles. Today I received a great Boxster DVD prize. Can't wait to watch it. It also is the perfect match to the Boxster/Boxster S promo book, albeit my book is in German. Looks like they are reunited!

Thanks and Merry Christmas!

Dan

Hi Dan,

You are very welcome for the DVD, it is our pleasure to be able to send those out to our participating members. And, thank you for responding as well. We need to hear from all of our members from time to time, that's the best way for us to build momentum and interest in our site. It is OUR site, it belongs to all who have made that easy decision and have joined.

Message to all - there are many opportunities to show interest in the site. Write an article, participate in the weekly Tech Quiz, ask a question, post a reply to something you are familiar with, do the "Boxster Lounge" if you just want to have a chat about something on your mind, add photos to your album.

For those of us in the cold weather states, it's a good time to talk about dealing with the stress of not being able to regularly drive your Boxster. I know I'm having a tough time myself, Bruno is sitting in the garage hooked up to the "life support" Porsche battery maintainer, when he would much more like to be out there competing in something.

Dan, thanks for your participation and we all look forward to hearing from you anytime.

Bob

Cool Re: Tech Quiz Surprise (with a Chance to Win)

To Bob, John and Miles

A heart felt Thanks to You, Porsche AG and Porsche North America for the beautiful and informative Boxster CD, which I received today. The question regarding "the final version of the Porsche crest" jogged something in my memory and out popped Erwin Komenda...by the way I really enjoyed the after quiz research you put me through...again it was great fun. I urge all members to participate in the weekly tech quiz...You may be fortunate to receive such a surprise, as I did...but most assuredly, you will achieve a greater wealth of knowledge about our beloved Boxsters.

Again...Thank you very much.

Dick Carter

Dick,

Well said, and we are so happy you like the DVD. It's very encouraging to know that members are enjoying the Tech Quiz Challenge. Some may not realize that the Parade Tech Quiz is considered as one of the four major Parade competition components, those being the Concours, Rally, Autocross and Tech Quiz. It's hoped that at this years Parade in Savannah we will have the most knowledgeable and prepared group of Boxster owners ever. The competition will be tough, but we will all be prepared based on our participation here.

Keep up the good work, and hopefully we may meet F2F in Savannah............

Bruno

Bob, you're absolutely right in your hope that we have a large group of Boxster Register members taking the Parade Tech Quiz.


Members:
I will be taking it along with Bob and I'm sure Miles and we all would be especially proud of any members who place high up the ranking.

Get your Boxster thinking caps back on, next weeks question will be about Boxsters.

Well Seth that just makes our day as volunteer admins and mods my Boxster friend. Many thanks for the kind words.

Please feel welcome here, consume all the free goodies you find and by all means post away for it is through the efforts of the entire community rather than the few of us behind the curtain which make this engine run. Let us know your needs, suggestions and ideas and I look forward to many more posts from you.

Again thanks for the kind words.
