Is this a good deal?

This Boxster is really cheap compared to the others with similar mileage. I'm not planning on getting this particular Boxster. Check it out:

wow, seems really cheap but the miles are high.
I guess it really depends on how well it was maintained.
Let us know if you got it and how it is.
I always wanted to know how well boxsters matured.

hmmm I dont know...I might be skeptical, true, especially based on the mileage. One or two shop guys have suggested that you consider replacing the engine around 110-130 k miles. Really depending on how well its maintained, thats what I heard...
If I ever come close to that kind of mileage I will do a carrera swap on the engine to a 3.4

My mechanic says it is possible to retrofit it, however you do loose your rear compartment.

Price is good but ...

for a bit more, you can get a newer and lower mileage one. There are alot of them to be picky.

Good Luck
