    Bye bye Boxster....

    .. after much heart searching I fially decided to sell my Boxster, and over the weekend it went to a new home.

    Having just moved house, started a new job etc. I thought I'd better take a little breather from sports car ownership for a little while (I've still got my deposit down on the AM V8 Roadster, and my dealer is trying to tempt me into a 997TT!)

    So, for the next few months I'll be driving around in my new VW Eos 2.0Turbo (got to say pretty impressed with this) and hanging out here getting my daily fix (if that's OK)

    The car went to a local guy upgrading from a Audi TT 3.2 and I've pointed him in this boards direction - he seemed an enthusiast so I think the car has gone to a good home.

    Keep watching out for the bouncing bunny from time to time.....

    Shock horror!!! Take it you musnt have been using it much then? Good time to sell I suppose, before the summer ends!

    You mind me asking what you got for her??? PM me if you'd prefer. Interested to see what my baby would be worth as we got the cars at the same time If I remember rightly

    Re: Bye bye Boxster....

    You've got PM RichJ.

    But no, I really wasn't using her enough. Whilst I'm happy to put my money into a car I've got to be using it and enjoying it - despite my best efforts I haven't quite got the the level where I can buy my cars at a whim and then leave them in the garage And in 17 months I'd only put 9000 miles on her, and I now cycle to work (well when it's sunny!) so she would become a garage queen otherwise

    Sorry to hear that, like me, you have parted with your baby for much the same reason as us. We got our cars only two days apart from the same dealer, our registration marks had only one letter difference, and having sold within a month of each other we were only two hundred miles apart! Boxster #2, due in October, will have to work much harder for it's keep being SWMBO's daily drive.
