here is the french newbie's Boxster !

hi guys, and good morning (1.00pm here...)

here's my Boxster:






my second bride is a 97' 2.5L, manual gearbox, ocean blue metallic paint, 17" boxster wheels. a few options (air cond., CD radio, etc).
she has 113MKm (75Kmiles), and runs like a brand new one...
3 weeks after my purchase, it is still the first day when I get in every morning

for information, I bought it 18K (roughly 22K$). I would say it is the average market's price here. what's your opinion/feedback ?

see ya'
Yann

Looks good. Thats comprable to the price we pay for a boxster here in the Toronto area. The K are normal and price is inline.

The paint looks really good, and the rest of the car seems pretty clean. Looks like the car is a good buy.

Enjoy.

C'est bon, mon ami! I see you have no Boxster badge on the back, just like mine. Enjoy it!

Teach me a french expression for "happy motoring" or something like that.

How far is Nantes from Millau?

Nantes is very close to Brittany (the western point of France), and Millau is south west, about 500 miles from here... so just give me a few hours...

let's say it is in the low average prices (does it mean anything in english )
I bought it from one of my uncle, a real Porsche fan who owns a SC, a 993 Targa, and... a 996 GT3, and he did me a "family" price...

Millau Bridge

This seems like an appropriate place to post this...
