Looks like OPC Bolton to me. Offered me the worst price for my Cayenne when I was looking to out it for a Cayman. Lower than WBAC Floor

Yes they are low balling me, hence the deal is still up in the air. Going to Monaco tomorrow so not sure what’s going to happen for now.

The S sounds a unicorn spec but no good if they are lowballing you on the trade in. Pity as your trade in is such a nice car and it's the wrong time of year to sell private. Have you advertised it on the boxa forum Dont know

I know it is not the same but....

Mrs L just sold her BMW 120d via Evans Halshaw - £500 more than WBAC - painless too

Might be worth a look if you need to shift it fast?

That S looks great btw....

2016 Porsche Boxster 981

PostPosted: Mon Sep 24, 2018 10:02 pm    Post subject: Reply with quote

The S looks like an amazingly well specced car. thumbsup I would personally struggle not to buy that, even if the trade in were rubbish. There are so few cars lucky enough to have been bought on a no expense spared basis, that you probably won't see another for a long time.

The GTS is a fab car - had one for three years and it's very easy to like. The only 'buts' for me were that I wished I'd specced PCCB (!!!) and a manual 'box. The pdk is clever, but I just prefer the way a manual 981 drives. Lastly, GTS are sometimes reported as having a slight back-ground drone. Whether it bothers you or not is a personal thing. I believe it to come from the additional resonance tube ('sound symposer') fitted to the intake plumbing.

Good luck Smile

So I emailed to reserve the Boxster S today... they took a deposit on it this afternoon. I was waiting to hear back from Oliver about a price on my car. Pissed that he never contacted me. If I was in the UK I'd be throwing a brick through their windows about now.

Sad

Yeah I wonder...

I was so pissed, he asked me if I'm still interested in the GTS, but I felt like saying I'm only interested in giving you the finger. I'm really tired of the way the sales at Porsche Wilmslow and Bolton have treated me.

I am sure that the new owner will be along in the Newbie section soon to introduce himself Hand

To be fair, the iMan did all the prep work for any potential buyer, so a quick phone call to seal a deal was all it needed from someone Bandit

That GTS does look decent and not over the top in terms of price either...

that is a just really bad luck Mad

I appreciate its not what you may want or be able to stretch to, but given the price has dropped a fair bit, would you consider getting a test drive in a Spyder?

I'd love one, I saw one for £72k. However this will be my daily so I wouldn't want to put the miles on it. Also I want PDK for a daily.

So I sold the Boxster. I have someone collecting it when I get back from Monaco. Bitter sweet, love that car.

Now I just need to find something to replace it!

Anyone know of a good Boxster S or GTS with PDK?

I want a 981. That's what I wanted three years ago but bought it while I waited for the new Boxster to be announced which was the 781.

Fair play. I thought they were stunning when they first came out. Do you remember all the fuss over the cill being slightly out of line on the early cars? Did they sort that out?

I think that was sorted. I never noticed it again.

Both the cars I looked at have sold now at Bolton. Pretty gutted. But neither were perfect although the one with PCCBs was pretty close. I'm pretty pissed at them.
