Hello all. Just bought a new 2006 Boxster (2.7). It is seal grey, with a grey top and grey leather. It a 5 speed, has Bose, heated seats, power seats, Xenon lights, self-dim mirrors/rain sensor, and Boxster S 18" wheels. It stickered for about $53K, and I'm drivin away for $44K. Is that a pretty good deal? I'm having second thoughts about buying another new car, because I swore the next one needed to be at least slightly used. (this is an 06 that is still on the lot with 15 miles).

Secondly, I'll be picking the car up in about a week and half. What do I need to do when picking it up? Anything to look for, anything specific to ask? What should I expectf from the dealer?

And lastly, (this will probably cause some debate), what are your recommendations for breaking in the engine? I've heard "don't go above 4,000 rpm for the first 1000 miles", and I've also heard to "drive it like you stole it" right off the bat.

Thanks in advance for the info and advice!

Congrats!

As long as that's the color combo and options you want, it is the fantastic deal.

and almost 17% off? Sounds perfect to me!

I'd stick with what you manual says about break in period.

(It takes forever to get 2k miles though...mine is at 1550 almost there)

Well. slight change of plans. I'm now getting a black/black/black Boxster, only has the 17's, but I've upgraded to auto climate control, TPSM, and a windstop in addition to the Bose, Xenon's, heated/power seats, and rain sensing wipers. Still for the same price though. Anyone know if you can upgrade to larger wheels and still keep the TPSM that comes with the car? I think it's actually a better car for the money, just wish it had the Boxster S wheels.

I live in central Jersey and bought my 987s new in White Plains NY for 47k this past March. I had a warranty issue about the time the break-in period was up so I had the oil changed and the local dealer took care of both with no problem.
