Hello All,

I’m Alex, just wanted to introduce myself. I’m in market for a Boxter. Test drove a 2005 yesterday, loved the way it drives, but there was a ticking sound at idle which worried me. Obviously a PPI may answer some questions, but there were many other cosmetic blemishes, including corners of bonnet folded up from being hyper extended.

Have heart set on a 1999 now, has hard top, and owner seems to be a knowledgeable Porsche guy who cares for it well. His brother also has Boxter and they’re club members. It’s at 110k miles, but the clutch is still good, had hard top, and present owner is conscientious when doing oil changes, inspecting the oil that comes out, looking st filter,etc. For me it won’t be a daily driver, so the risk is less. I hope to get at least 1 or 2 summers out of it before I have to replace clutch as winter project. He just did AOS, fuel pump & relay, and new O2 sensors.

The 1999 Seems like a better bet than the 2005 I drove which the dealer had picked up at an auction.

Glad to be on the forum, and I appreciste the wealth of knowledge here. I have lots of reading to do.
