Any CEL's

Is the Check Engine Light (CEL) on / throwing codes? Would you be willing to take it to a local garage for a PPI? How do you propose to handle the transaction since you have a payoff on the car? Pay the financial institution directly? Then the cut you a check for the balance? Also can you take a photo of the option sticker under the Frunk?

There are currently no 2003 Boxster S for sale in the PCA Panorama Magazine and haven't been for a few months so maybe list it there. There were only about 8500 of these built and even fewer of the identical 2004's so there should be some demand out there.

I looked for a year for mine in 2014 and happily found the one I wanted.

Good luck.

Some advice....

.......Your car will have much more market appeal with just a few minor changes.

You have two items on your car that are fighting each other and scaring away some folks. You have a Tiptronic Transmission AND a Beluga racing exhaust. These two do NOT go together.

Somebody who wants a loud exhaust wants a manual transmission. Somebody looking for a Tiptronic car will not put up with the drone outta that Beluga exhaust.

I recommend you find a stock exhaust off eBay and install it and sell the Beluga to pay for the switch.

Also, the Beluga exhaust adds to the uncertainty about the engine. It just does.

Replace the black wheel center caps with silver to match the wheels, they make your car look like a "Rice Boy" special and that is scaring off the older folks with money trolling on this site for a car.

Finally, last I checked, it's December. Nobody north of the Mason-Dixon Line is going to even look at a convertible until April.

Maybe offer the car to Woody, he's in Bastrop, Texas with the sunshine, and a million wealthy hipsters thirty minutes up the road in Austin who make a good buyer pool.

Good luck.

Here is a link to the PCNA production information. I thought it might help.

Don't click on this but copy and paste into your browser.

The #1 issue has to be the lien on the title. The first lesson in "Used Car Buying 101" is to never buy a car with a lien on the title since the seller doesn't actually own it.

Sorry, but no. Your comment has no basis in reality outside of your own opinion. 90% of vehicles under 5 years old have notes on them and they trade privately all the time. Ever heard of a lien release? Buying a car from someone with a lien on it adds a step to the transfer process, but dealing with the bank is absolutely the list risky part of a used automobile transaction...

It's that IMS concern...

I'll give you $5300 CASH. I'll fly to Colorado, give you the cash, and drive it home. I'll do it next week if you wanna sell. I'm serious. You can pay off your note and go out to dinner a few times with the leftover quid..

Offer stands through tomorrow only.

Otherwise, wait until April.
