3 Boxsters now moving on - loved them all even with 106m

Hiya All...

Just a quick post to share my love of the Boxster! my last 3 cars have all been Boxsters. I began with a very old 3.2s, loved it so much I then bought a brand new 2.7. Then with a house move that had to go. I did get sensible and bought a Seat FR Diesel, but 4 months of that was enough so, I went on the Boxster hunt again, didn't have very much to spend and found a 93,000 mile 2.7(2002). This turned out to be my favorite. I don't know why, it was easy to drive, looked great, personal plate, sounded awesome and I think because of its value (I gave £6500 for it 2 years ago) I wasn't afraid to take it anywhere. It was sensible to insure and on a run 34mpg. The condition was great alloys un marked and I was a little excessive with cleaning and polishing. People often thought is was worth so much more than its true value! Having had one service at a specialist (£600) and two tyres it has not cost me a penny in two years. Now showing 106,000 miles I have sold it for - 300 less that I paid for it 2 years ago.

The reason for my post is for anyone thinking should I or shouldn't I buy an older or high mileage Boxster is to say yes! Get a FSH have it checked over. A regular service and if my experience of having 2 older Boxsters is anything typical, over all it may well cost you less to run than a Golf GTI.

I will miss my Boxsters they are a cracking car - I Just hope my 911 cab I have just bought gives me the same smile as my Boxster did every time I get in it!

Couldn't agree more. Had my Boxster since January - its 10 years old and I'm loving every moment. Had a 996 a year before but think I enjoy driving this at least as much if not more.
Here here! I second that.

It *might* take a while to adjust to the 911 driving style, but it is worth it.
