Bought the 02 S, picking it up tonight

My 5th Boxster will be coming home tonight. 02 S, silver/blk 6sp with 28K miles. Going to make some room tonight in the garage. Going tomorrow AM to get an estimate for the dent to be repaired. Absolutely loved it during the test drive.

Did both rear fog lights work? Often one is out I understand.

That's normal for US cars. Two rear fogs is a EURO thing.

Home for 15 minutes and clear side markers are ordered. Forgot how fun these cars are. Plenty of power and fast enough for me. Going to take a look tomorrow and see if it has been de snorkeled. More sound and growl is better!

Congrats!

Funny thing you sandwiched a 360 experience in between all of your Boxster ownerships. People do not believe me, but my favorite car to drive is still the Boxster compared to many true exotics.

Psst... How much for that car?

Those wheels look aftermarket.
Nice score

My only disclaimer is this car is not perfect, small scratch on rear bumper, small (dime sized) dent on left rear quarter and dent by right rear tire. If you look closely on the pics you'll see what I mean by the rear tire. All will be fixed in 2 weeks.

02 S, 18" Porsche wheels, new tires, brakes 75%, 28K miles $14,846.
