We bought our first Boxster in August and added another one yesterday. It's a 2001 6spd with 46k. We bought the first one (2002 base Tiptronic)as a daily driver for my wife plus we have taken long "therapy rides" on the weekends and the miles were really starting to pile up, so we thought the best solution was to buy another one! I know our neighbors think we must be crazy spend thrifts, but the price that we paid for both Boxsters is about what you would pay for a new Corolla. I know I will be looking at some pricey repairs down the road, but that new Corolla will be losing value a lot faster.

Some of the wood is becoming unglued, can anyone recommend a good adhesive. Eventually we want to upgrade the headlights and taillights. I have ordered some hood and trunk supports and will have to do the plugs soon. It also had a K&N Oil Filter and magnetic plug installed so I will have to figure out what I need for the next oil change. The person we bought it from threw in a copy of 101 projects book so we will be busy for a while.

Sorry for the ginormous pics. I used TapTalk to post post the pics and had no idea they would come out like this.

It's my favorite color, too. I like your tail lights, that will be on my Christmas wishlist.
