Just bought my Boxster!

I'm the new owner of a 2002 Boxster, Seal Grey, 5spd manual, heated seats, litronics, only 18k miles, clean carfax, one owner.. its in great condition.. got it for $28k.

I don't have the owners manual yet, the guy lost it but is buying me a new one..

Anything in particular I should know? any tips/tricks I should know about? I just picked it up about 30 minutes ago so I don't know much about it yet.. Thanks!

It's been 30 minutes and you're not driving it?

Get back in the car and drive it!

And don't worry if you got a good deal or not... you can't do anything about it now. But that does seem like a good deal, just to throw in my 2 cents' worth.

The manual will be very helpful. I learned quite a bit about the alarm, knobs, how to get into the engine compartment, etc.

sounds like a really good price to me too!!

Is anybody keeping tally of people who bought a car and didnt get a manual? Its at least in the 20s by now. Crazy.

Brett: I've been looking hard - you stole it. Have your wife go to the Porsche dealer's pre-owned listings and enter 2002 - 01 while you're at it. (..they drink a lot of Jolt Cola at those dealerships!)

She'll pat you on the back.
