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.
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.
