2003 Boxster S - Lapis Blue - Loaded!

Beautiful 2003 Boxster S in Lapis Blue!

Price: $12,000.00 or best offer

Milage is right at 101K

This car has over $10,000.00 on suspension parts and work done and handles like a dream, I have never driven a car that can go into a turn and just grab the road like this Boxster. This car has many of the most sought after factory options including Bose sound system, Porsche Stability Management (PSM), onboard computer, 18" Carrera Wheels with colored center caps, Litronic Headlights, factory sort shift, and more.

All work was done by Porsche specialist and authorized Porsche mechanics. To start with, the stock struts were all replaced with adjustable Blistein coil over PSS9 struts. The Bilstein struts are adjustable so you can dial in the performance you want and improve the look of how the car sits, currently the car sits one inch below the stock height and in my opinion looks so much better. The sway bars were all replaced with adjustable Eibach performance sway bars with polyurethane bushings. When this car goes into a turn it grabs the road unlike anything you have ever driven before.

- Bilstein coil over struts (PSS9)
- Eibach front and rear sway bars and polyurethane bushings

Other Add-ons
A factory short shift was install to reduce the shifter throw, feels great. I also installed and activated the stock onboard computer.

- Factory short shift upgrade
- Onboard Computer

Resent fixes
Since I have owned this car I have meticulously maintained her and had all require servicing done at the Porsche dealership. Any time there was an issue with this car I took it to the dealership and had it fixed right away. In the process of maintaining this car I have done so many things that it would be hard to list everything here but just know that this car has been very well cared for and maintained. Most important, I have had regular oil changes at ever 3,000 miles. This car was not a daily driver but I did enjoy driving this car more than any other I owned so I did take her where ever I went. I have recently replaced all the window regulators and the drive side locking mechanism (common items that go bad on Boxsters). I have just completed a replacement of all control arms, bushings, and all other stock suspension components that ware with age. Please feel at ease knowing that both the IMS and the RMS bearing and seal have been replaced (a common item to go out on older Boxsters), this was replaced before any failure at 76K when I bought the car, the clutch was also replaced at the same time. I have just replaced the light switch and the ignition switch (common items to go out). I just replaced the battery a few months back and I have had the front and rear bearings replaced. I have brand new brake pads and will have these installed for the new owner task possession of the car.

- New bearings front and rear
- Bose High End Sound Package
- Litronic Headlamp Package
- Heated Front Seats
- Cruise Control
- Porsche Stability Management (PSM)
- Porsche Windstop (Deflector)
- On Board Computer
- Wheel caps w/colored Porsche Crest


Recent work
- new window regulators on both doors.
- Replaced all control arms, ball joints, and trailing arms.
- IMS bearing and RMS replaced.
- Clutch replaced
- new break pads
- new battery
- New key remote
- 90K service
- Oil change
- Alignment

These are this images of the car when I bought her a couple years back. She has been garage kept since I bought her and she looks the same today and even better in person, very clean car. I will take some new pics soon

This looks suspiciously like a very nice car from Chicago on which some Texan beat me to the punch a couple of years ago...
If I total mine in the next few days, you will have a prospective buyer!

Same car I am going to post some new picture later today. I love this car but I also have a 2007 Boxster S and I need to sell one. I go back and forth on which one because this one really out performs the 07.

Very nice car. I sold a very similar equipped 2002 S a year ago for $15k.
So whoever gets this car gets a great car at a bargain.

Beautiful Car! Want to trade

GlWS, If I could sell my track prepped 944 Turbo quickly, I will come knocking.
However if you want to trade for a highly prepped track car, let me know

I am overwhelmed by all the interest in my car, thanks so much. I hate to say it but after a long conversation with my wife tonight we have decided not to sell the car at this time but will reevaluate in the spring.

I'm not at all surprised by the interest - at that price, you were giving it away!
beautiful car btw - looks just like mine

I feel better. I just bought a Seal Grey 04 S. I thought I got a great deal at $15500, but seeing yours, I was feeling like I missed out. I hate car envy!
