Updates, and a follow up question. After speaking with the esteemed MikeFocke, I have seen the light. Many of my purchase related questions have been answered. The purchase equation has developed somewhat as well: The car is being sold for $29,845. Through the Carfax, I now have COMPLETE service history since new, and will have undergone a PPI by a dealer that has previously serviced it. Spent most of its life in Southern California (lease to 39K) before being sold and owned briefly in Portland - 20K miles in 18 months to approximately 55K. The vehicle will also have what I assume will be the 60K service. I'm waiting on the PPI and full options list. I ask again: Is this a good deal/would you buy this car? Silver 05 boxster S tiptronic, bose and 19" carrera II (Lobster claw style) wheels. No navi. Good (if not very good) service history. Car will be used as a daily driver and general stimulant/antidepressant in San Francisco, CA.
Paul, Thanks for your time. 1) Based on the carfax/vehicle history, I was planning/hoping to track down records from the carfax based on the vehicles location and local dealers. The assumption is that the car was serviced at the dealer where it was purchased. 2) is the price competitive, or even reasonable? 3) Would a decent PPI and interface with PST2 be able to track "overrevving" - if so, I may schedule an appointment with a dealer to verify these issues. thanks again all!
Hello Renntech forum members. Question 1: Based on the below, would you buy this car? Question 2: What are the major known problems/issues with 987 Boxsters? I'm a visiting new member from the bimmerfest, I'm evaluating a 2005 Boxster S for purchase. Silver/Black, with 55K, Tiptronic. Listed for $30K, non porsche dealer. No owner records available, but I may be able to track some down. The car would be a daily driver/commuter. I'm aware of the IMS issue with the M96 motor, but wanted to ask some savvy people about issues with 987s in general. Thanks in advance for your guidance/posts.
