There's 5 pics in the advert.

My pic below is from the Leeds Castle event a few years ago.

I can't see any in the advert. It does look great. I'd love to do a project on one eventually but the timing isn't right for me now.

Hi, I'm considering an early 2.5 Boxster and your dad's one looks lovely!

Only issues for me are lack of aircon and sport seats, which ar uncomfortable for me given my height (6ft5). The 986 is small and the standard seats give that little more extra room.

Very torn on this one...!!

Aircon - less to go wrong and its a soft top so open the roof!!
Seats - You would be able to pick up some std front seats to fit no problem and keep the sports for when you sell.

This looks a brilliant little car, Id love it. In fact doesn't fancy a swap against a Seat Leon Tdi does he Laughing

Thanks coullstar 👍🏻
Was gong to say AC not needed as if it’s hot, roof down. That was my motto anyway Grin

Re swap, he’s actually just bought a much newer Leon FR as a replacement Thumb

I agree no aircon = less to go wrong (and less weight). However... roof down on a hot summer day in town or on motorway just isn't nice. Neither are foggy windows in rainy conditions.

The seats I'd possibly swap as you say, so less of a concern, just a hassle. I also have nowhere to store them, so would have to sell this making the car less original, bit of a shame?

Trust me, a red 2.5 from an enthusiast vendor is exactly what I'm looking for, so I don't say the above llightly...
