New owner 2001 Boxster Seal Grey

I just sold my Miata to make room. I tested several cheaper high mileage cars but settled on this one with 41000 miles. Service done at 38000 included clutch, ims, seals, plugs and coils. New tires, brakes, a clean everywhere. All stock except short shifter. The clutch was smooth and easy. I can't wait to get it next week, I'm nervous about owning a car this nice, it really feels like new.

Welcome

These cars are better quality than MX 5, one of my sons had two of these Mazda roadsters, my 2003 is very nicely trimmed and has premium quality paint job.
I suspect prices will not stay this low for much longer,

Any chance of pictures?

Congratulations!

I got mine a year ago with 36K; I did the oil change air filter, pollen filter, and plugs but not the IMS yet. I discovered no particles on the oil filter; a sign of degrading IMS--can't wait to take it out from winter storage this Spring

Looks good. I see the PO swapped out the amber side markers for smoked grey. Looks good against Seal Grey. You should look into doing the front amber.

Nice car and seems very well maintained.

So my first Porsche is ready to be picked up, title is clear and Stella dropped 20" of snow in central PA. Thanks to the seller for keeping it covered and on the charger till the weather breaks a little. It's was sunny and warm 2 weeks ago.

Congrats! You'll soon be driving that beauty, hearing the Symphony in Flat Six, feeling the great handling, appreciating the two trunks, and having a bad case of Permagrin

Got it, and now I get it. This is a serious car, so much power with control. The best part is my wife likes it. She's been asking questions and telling her friends about it.
