The Merkur mated nicely with the SA - they seem to play nicely for me. Very smooth shave with no nicks or weepers.

...as do I. I use their Cade soap only because they don't seem to make a L'Occitane scent cake shaving soap. Works well for me - pretty much all I used while I was on my little overseas adventure courtesy of Uncle Sam. :)

Apologies for my absence. I always thought the 914 and 914-6 were "red headed stepchildren" along with the 928 and related models. I took the Boxster on a trip to a conference a couple of days ago and opened her up a bit just for kicks. WOW! So smooth and stable at speed... didn't feel like I was go...

I really like roadsters - I wanted an older Z3 but also was considering an older MGB or Alfa Romeo. Glad to have stuck it out - the Boxster was really quite a deal. Never was much for the Sprite... although I do like the AH 3000.

Hi, I haven't really encountered much anti-Boxster sentiment, then again, I've only been to the dealer once and haven't been to any PCA type events. What I have found is a little bit of "Oh, YOU have a Porsche?" treatment... at the dealer, and only from a couple of the folks there. Quite a few more ...

Wow, I didn't realize there were that many different bath soaps available!

Until I try some of these previously mentioned ones, my favorites are both Pre de Provence... Peony and Lavender. I like the L'Occitane scent bath soap as well, but from what I understand, they're discontinuing that one.

Porsche owners out there?

Does anyone else on here own a Porsche? I got my first one just a couple of weeks ago and am in love. It's a 2001 Boxster. No "S" for me, thank you. I realize it runs counter to Porsche's racing heritage but I see no need to drive fast. It's such a beautiful machine - very well put together. Cruisin...

I love both, probably the lavender a bit more. My girlfriend loves them both as well. I really dig the scent during shaving... it's a pity it doesn't last longer... the A/S I have more than make up for it though. I have only tried a couple different lavenders (TOBS cream soap and both CF and St Char...

I was about to start a new thread when it dawned on me to do a quick search...

Anyone else on here use one of these? It's my primary brush and I'd hate to think I was one of maybe only two or three guys out there using one.

How's it holding up for you?
