Finally, I'm a boxster owner! :D

After by 944 got stolen earlier this spring, I decided that i want something newer.. And as i just turned 23 a couple weeks ago, why not get myself something nice.

Yesterday i picked up this beauty, 64000km, GT3 front bumper, M030 package, 19" Cup, S breaks, S details here and there.. Not sure if its a 2,5 or 2,7 due to engine change (engine blew, porsche guanantee covered it) and havent been able to check engine codes yet, but pulls harder than any other 2,5 I've driven.

Drove it home last night, 500km, it was a dream!

welcome, congratulations too, that looks a lot like my ride, I like how the litronics look with the GT3 bumper cover. I went from a 944 to my Boxster as well, you're going to love it.

Nice Car... classic color combo!

Btw, the wheels look to be Turbo II's, not Cup I's or Cup II's.

Good Luck!

profanity

boxster were great when I got mine like wow 5 years ago 29,000 black and amazing, but now you can pick a good one up for 6k, wtf happened to this price drpI lost 5k per year, dont get me wrong i had some OUTSTANDING drives in this car because no1 else had one really but now everyone has a boxster, i got myself an M3 and a s320 merc which adds a nice 3 car collection.

the problem is from what I am told loads of people bought boxsters in 01 = 02 couldnt afford the payments and garages were getting full, then had to drop and drop... crazy.

superb cars for the money but again really show poor mans porsche! shoot really considering there amazing cars, slow but still they look the good.

Your new Box is a great looking specimen. Looks like you purchased very smartly.

Best of luck. Love the wheels!

I'd be interested in a group buy for the right price (and for the Aero II skirts as well).
