1. Steering wheel is on the wrong side.
2. Check rear bumper and exhaust pipe. looks like repainted and not 100% in right position - maybe photo problem.
3. Steering wheel is not 1999, but nice upgrade
4. Non full leather interior looks always kind of cheap. Check if you like it.

Regards, Markus

Hi Peter,
Nice Boxster for the money & nice color, later headlights are a good (expensive) upgrade, if it's got a full service history I'd take a chance, any of the two Porsche specialist in B,Clare could check it out for you before the warranty expires.
Take a test drive & it will put a smile on your face.

P.S. Better hurry, the first snow has arrived here tonight.

I like the color and it looks to be in great shape, and the mileage and price are good. I would definitely consider a car like that! Take it for a ride and see what you think, it looks like it was well cared for.

Great looking, decent mileage with a service history. Just make sure you get a PPI, good luck with your purchase

The three spoke steering wheel was an option (opt 436) on the '99 model (my '99 has one).

Nice looking car!
