"Found" one...
dak911 - 1 month ago
Back to BOXSTER ownership.
When the "right" car comes along, you just know.
Trade in at Me/Be dealer
I got to it the first day it was offered
3/13 Build date
28,000 miles, One Owner
Stuttgart Build
Basalt Black, Luxor Beige partial leather Black top
PDK
20"Carrera S Wheels
Seat Ventilation
Power Steering Plus
Infotainment
Convenience
2 Keys, Manuals and Window sticker.
So it's a pretty much Base car
The only things I found are 2 "chips" the size of a match head (not dented)
I have owned a lot of cars over the years, this is BOXSTER number 4.
They are like women, you don't really know what you are getting right away, takes a few months or miles eye rolling smiley

Congrats. Nice ride. The design is four years into no IMS, too. Fourth time's a charm? Ventilated seats are the best, Jerry, the best. So are heated with heated steering wheel.

Congrats! Sounds like a real beauty.

How did you know?
I must be "loosing "it, I was not able to 'STEAL" it, but the price was very good for "this" car............then you add the B/S Doc Fee and the Dealer Fee sad smiley
But "they" did put new Michelin Pilot Sport 2 S's, New Pads and rotors, oil change and unspecified other "repairs to the tune of $4500 (internal cost)
And most importantly the MRS already took it for a ride, gone 45 minutes, came back with a thumbs up andsmiling smiley


"A mile of highway will take you one mile. A mile of runway will take you anywhere."
Congratulations!
Sounds like a very nice car.
The new tires/pads/rotors suggest you'll be able to drive this for a few years without shelling out significant $'s in maintenance costs.
Have fun with it!
Congratulations! I'm sure you'll appreciate the vented seats in hot weather. The 981 is a big step forward from the 987.

For those chips, I'd recommend Dr. Colorchip. If you follow their instructions, it's easy and does a great job.

Now go out and get that Permagrin - and grab and share (after the drive) winking smiley some pictures of that beauty (I think - until I see some pictures.).
Good for you!

I have bought and sold a lot of cars over the years...this is Boxster # 4...People laugh at me when I say that "cars talk to me" When I walk up to a used car I immediately get a message,
Most say "Walk away", but now and them I get a good message. I keep listening for the "walk away"
This one did not give me the "walk away" message
There are good ones, you buy it, then it takes a few months of driving...to really "know"
So, now I wait......
I'll be surprised if you don't love this car. I still think the 981 is the ultimate Boxster model. The new 982 GTS 4.0 is a great car. More HP and has that flat six back. For me, I don't really need the extra power. I have to keep a reign on my right foot all the time, as it is, so I can avoid interaction with the LEO's. The 4.0 engine also has the cylinder deactivation, so when you're cruising, it will alternately run on 3 cylinders. It just adds more complexity and potential $$$$ down the road.

Looking forward to hearing how you like this new one.

PS. Got any pictures of the interior?

Enjoy.
Thanks, all the other Boxsters were 6's, 2 were S's, You are right for "today's" kind of driving as a fun "go for a ride car the Base is good enough.
The 4 cylinder engines are probably faster but......
Had to be a PDK, keep "The Boss" happy, she has already taken it for 2 "rides"..../
I came home and it was gone.....smiling smiley
Yesterday was a 2 hour "cruise north on A1A along the beach....8 other P cars sighted, I wave...no one waves back....everyone used to years ago. These people are what I call the GUCCI loafer owners..."It's Just A Car",
I had someone say that to me when I commented on how close he was parked behind a pickup truck eye popping smiley
