Anyone over 35 yo and not a millennial make an offer.

Never mind...I will pay the car off then offer it for sale...But not here..

Mommies basement dwellers cannot afford anything anyway.
Wow! Salesmanship 101 fail.

FWIW, I bought a 2003 S from a member in Texas right here on this forum, not to mention numerous parts over the years. Just because no one made you an offer does not mean things don't sell.

Although your car is priced fair, it doesn't mean offers are going to fly in. Maybe its just the time of year, the mileage, tiptronic vs. manual, color....who knows?

I sent you a PM. No response however. This is likely the best place to sell. PCA might also be something to consider.

Price Adjustment

Decided I need to be more realistic on pricing..especially with an unknown IMS.

$9000..

Bump. You are NOT going to buy a nicer 986S at this price.

If not sold here, I will just keep her..once I have it paid off..I will sell for a higher (and Justified) higher price. So in June of 2018 I will be asking 10K+

How old is the replacement motor

You mentioned in your OP that the motor was a replacement. Do you know the mileage when this happened?

Thanks

Sorry, I have no idea when done. I can say the motor is still very clean overall besides the usual slight dust buildup. I have tried researching but to no avail.

Not our loss...
This is not the best time to see ragtops.

In December of 2003I bought a 2003 BMW Z4 out of New Jersey, six months old, 5K miles with $47K sticker for $30K.
