    Boxster S it is!!!

    Wow, thanks for all your response on my choice between Boxster S or 911 Cabriolet, sorry about posting to the wrong forum. Regarding the purchase of a 2005-06 "S" what areas should I pay close attention to when purchasing used?
    I'm concerned about getting stuck with repairs on a big ticket item...any thoughts would be appreciated.
    Thanks again!

    Re: Boxster S it is!!!

    Besides the obvious stuff, I would get the computer diagnostics read out and look for Stage II registrations. That indicates the car was severely over-rev'd, possibly voiding your warranty. Some dealers will do it, some won't.

    Re: Boxster S it is!!!

    grats on your new car, the 987 is really good looking. i actually prefer the looks of a 987 over its bigger cousin the 911.

    Re: Boxster S it is!!!

    You should be pretty safe with either an 05 or 06. The factory warranty for those years in the US is 4 years/50k miles so you should have plenty of warranty left. I agree with Adrift on the stage 2 over-rev check. Other than that, just the standard checks. You can use the Porsche website to scan the inventory of cars at dealers close to where you live. Take your time and find the one you want, not the one the first salesman tries to push on you. When you finally do buy one make sure you let us know and don't forget to post pics.

    Re: Boxster S it is!!!

    New ones are as "cheap as chips" in the USA, so snap up an "old" new 2006 model at a huge discount if you can find one you like languishing at an over-stocked dealer.
    It would give you a great feeling inside to be the first owner.
    If only we in the UK paid your prices...
