Just bought 1st Boxster!

Picking up 1999 Boxster today! Arena red with gray interior, 18" Porsche wheels, tiptronic, 61,000 miles. Looking forward to the forum! Any suggestions with the new vehicle would be appreciated. Brad

Bought it from a reputable broker who only deals in exotic and rare cars. They include a 12mo/12,000 mile warranty. They are doing a complete inspection as we speak (which they are required to do for the warranty company). The warranty gives me some good peace of mind for the first year, and I may extend it before it expires.

Factory maintenance in the owner's manual suggest you replace the serpentine belt at 60k. Just a thought. I had mine done. Easy job, and not that expensive. Good for peace of mind and not getting stranded someplace it if breaks. I would also check to see if the spark plugs were changed as part of the regular maintenance too.

Yep, as others have posted - stay up on the maintenance. That said ENJOY the car for what it is.

This car is a blast! Took it out on the freeway last night and it was smooth as silk. Glad I got this instead of a BMW Z3! Got up in the night just to go look at it in the garage! Sold my 2007 Jeep Wrangler to buy this. Glad I did...
