"Porsche Boxster 3.2S"

I recently bought a Porsche Boxster S 3.2. It's red with black interior, ABS, Traction Control, Trip Computer, Surround sound system and the usual Boxster bits.

I paid about £12K for this model, X reg, 84000 miles. Then the problems started:

1. Airbag light was on...needed new ECU costing £350 (dealer paid)
2. 2x new rear tyres...Michelin £200 each (dealer paid)
3. Emission Control light came on. Reset by Porsche £50...two days later, came on again!
4. Clutch needed replacing...£870
5. Windscreen chipped (dealer paid)
6. Front and rear CV gaiters needed replacing (dealer paid)
7. Front tyres needed replacing...£260

Having had all this work done, the car is brilliant. Very fast, 6 speed gearbox for shorter gear ratios. 152+ mph and 280bhp. Handles exceptionally well. 25 - 30 mpg; but driving like an old person got 35mpg.

Other needs:

1. Front brake hose needs replacing

Insurance cost £820 fully comp, tax is about £200 per annum, £70 to fill the tank (takes Super Unleaded).

I would recommend this car to anyone wanting some fun; but be careful about the hidden costs.

    Doesn't sound like the dealer did a very good pre sale check on the condition of the car! Useful 1st review and welcome to ciao
