Finally selling my 2003 Boxster S

Hi everyone,
It's a sad day today, I am finally putting my Boxster S on sale.
I just have to accept the reality of not enough garage spaces for 3 cars.

Let me know if you guys think the price is right or not.
Thanks

That's too bad.

Realistically, I think you should expect it to bring $10.5k-$12.5k, but the IMS retrofit may add $1k to the right buyer.

Good luck!

Nice car and obviously taken care of by you. But I think you are on the high side. I'm thinking you should get around 12k with that amount of miles. Maybe advertise 14 and give some wiggle room.

Wow, that is a really nice, well-optioned, and great looking car!

My thoughts on pricing: advertise at $14K, take anything over $12K.

I nearly had to face the same decision as I only have a 1.5 car garage at my condo and the long winter in Michigan is here. I decided to get rid of my storage unit for a larger one. It costs me an extra $120 per month ($400 total) but is well worth it and I can keep my cars and projects in there. It's 2 miles from the house and the wife no longer complains about anything I have to do or the mess I have to make or the chemical smells that will come into the house, as a matter of fact she has not even been to it yet. I got a 20x40 and could fit 4 cars in there with plenty of room to work around them and the electricity is included.

I have a post here now. Looks like Craigslist isn't so reliable.
