    Hi All

    I have recently purchased a 2004 Boxster S with 71,000miles.
    My first impressions are very positive.
    There are a few minor niggles though. The brakes though very powerful, have very little early bite, you have to use a considerable amount of force to get them to activate the ABS compared to my daily drive a 520BMW, brakes and pads have plenty of wear left. The car is very responsive to inputs, but seems a touch vague whilst in a straight line. And I was surprised that it felt like the backend was going to come round on a quick left hander over a crest, it has PSM and it was switched on, (it was a cold day though). There is also a very minor gearbox / diff noise when in lower gears, and what seems to be a minor whine from the rear nearside at around 45MPH to 70MPH I checked for any lateral movement on the wheel whilst jacked up but it was solid as a rock. If anybody could give some advice on the noise, or any other of my early observation it would be appreciated.
