  1. Congrats, great car. Easy to drive hard, and instills a lot of confidence. Black cars are hard to keep clean, but you probably know this (use Zaino products). I would miss the drop-top, though. Thanks! I know you said that get the "S" version, but my dad wanted a certified car within his budget and this cayman just fell on his lap. As for the drop-top, the good part is that my brother has a Z4, so my dad said that if he wanted to let his thinning hair out, they can switch cars for the weekend :P Anyway, I'm off to my parents place to see if I can drive it for a couple of hours and see how it compares to my Honda Fit. :D
  2. Thanks guys for all you help! Well, my dad ended up with an 07 Cayman, black on black, 5spd, CPO with only 14k miles. I think (hope) that he got a good deal on it though.
  3. Yeah, I told him not to jump on that one, even though its an S, I think he would prefer to have the manual in the longer run.
  4. Just to make sure I have it right, the m97 engine only began on the MY2006 models? Where do I check for the engine code on these cars?
  5. Well, looks like he found an '05 Boxster S for a good price, only problem is it is automatic. Are the "S" engine less prone to the IMS failures?
  6. Hey, new member here and I want to help out my dad with his *potential* purchase. He's looking to get a Boxster, either an 05 or an 06. I've been researching for him and found out a lot about the RMS and IMS failures on the 986. Do these problems still persist with the 987? I've read that cars with the m97 engine have the redesigned intermediate shaft, but I've also read that some of the early 987's still have the m96 engines. How do I find out if the car he's looking at has the newer m97 engine? Great forum and resource here! Thanks, Ron
