What should I have paid?

I was after a used 987 Boxter S in Lapis blue with sand leather. The hardtop is valuable to me (and now that I have them the bi-xenon lights). It had only 600 miles!

So, before I tell you, you tell me: What should I have paid?

I bought a similar car but a 2005 with only 300 miles on it and paid $52K, of course there are variances by regions, time of year etc..

Don't punish yourself unnecessarily - you bought what you wanted, think you got a deal, so don't go looking for better deals to make yourself feel bad if you happened to pay a bit more. Just enjoy the car!! I can guarantee you that there are many thousands who paid much more than you did, no matter how much you paid!

That is a great looking Boxster. Love the sand interior! I'm with Todd - if you like the vehicle - then you got a good deal. Enjoy!

But if you paid more, remember that..."A man's errors are his portals of discovery."

Portland International Speedway?

I made no mistake, my error was volitional.
I paid 56k and am very happy with it.
When I was 25 I saw an old guy (maybe 45) driving an XKE and thought, "the old fart will never drive it like it was made to be driven." Now I find myself in that position with a much better car. So I need to learn to drive it.
Have any of you been to Portland International Speedway?

You paid what you paid for it.

Don't worry, be happy!

maybe we should start, like what we have with how many miles on a car, a thread on how much we all paid for our cars.

you guys think it wuld be a good idea?

For some it will be a good idea to know how much have they progress and for others, they might end up kicking their own butt and screaming....."What I paid this much and I spend this much already" ahahahahahaha!
