after three months... I GOT MY BOXSTER

I finally got my Boxster!!! a silver/bllack 2000 with 40k miles! I found it about 200 miles away and the owner met me half way after a couple weeks of emails etc...
I got the PPi at his local Porsche dealer and everything checked out GREAT! I also purchased the rest of his platinum Porsche warrantee that lasts until late next summer!!!
I could not sleep the last two nights... I kept going into the garage and turning the lights on to make sure I wasn't dreaming... sure enough this morning it was still there!
I'll try and get pics up soon.

Congrats, and welcome to the club. I really like the silver color of my 2000 Boxster. I got mine at the beginning of last summer and it had 43K miles. It had two previous owners but got a clean bill of health from PPI.

BTW, when I was car shopping I was looking at a number of two-seater convertibles, but the BMW dealer that was had the car on the lot talked me into taking the Boxster home for the weekend to "give it a try", there was no going back, these are very fun cars, enjoy,

I'm approaching my one-year anniversary with a similar car. All I can say is that the honeymoon is still on.

Congratulations and I hope you enjoy it.

I remember when I got mine, I kept going in the garage to admire it! It is normal. Come to think of it... I still do that!

Best of luck and welcome!

I've only had mine for 3 weeks, and I also still go out to the garage just to take a look... pretty unbelievable to me.

That reminds me I really need to get the bugs off this weekend!

Loving every minute of it...
