WTB Early Porsche Boxster with IMS upgrade

Hello,

I am looking to purchase my first Porsche and a Boxster seems like a nice entry level introduction. I plan on using it as a weekend car. I am risk adverse so I would prefer if you had paperwork for a certified IMS upgrade. I live in New Jersey but will travel within 200 miles or so for the right car. I am looking for manual transmission only. Paperwork of prior maintenance is more important than color.

Thanks

Just wanted to let you know that the years 97-99 don't require an IMS upgrade, if you end up looking at any of those years.

Like Drew suggested, the failure rate on '97-'99 cars is estimated at less than 1%. There are plenty of other things that can fail catastrophically on a car, so that 1% isn't an issue worth thinking twice about.

I'd bet on that.
