Re: 06 CS Price
This is a nice car. The price is a little high. I paid 38,600 for mine, but didn't get CPO with it. Mine had 16K on it, but also has navigation otherwise, the options are pretty similar.

Also, if you have dreams of running this car on a race track in driving events, you should read the complaints area of this site that concerns oiling and power steering problems at high G and high temps. There are some good fixes around for these things. If you're staying with street tires and driving on the street, these problems won't apply. The car is even good for long curvy exit ramps at warp speed but probably want to keep it at least one gear from red-line while doing that. High revs plus high G's seem to cause the problems.
These issues are sorted on '09 and newer Caymans, but they cost about twice as much as a good, used '06. I like the options on this car and I'd jump on it, personally.
I don't regret buying mine. I've done a ton of mods, but my car is track-worthy now and a lot of fun. If yours is a daily driver or weekend fun car, you'll love it. Just keep off the track/autocross circuits until you have some work done.
...or use your warranty to get a new engine when yours goes south. But the replacement will have the same issues. You need to attend to the fixes if you buy this. Non dealer mechanics are your best bet for help on this. This site is really helpful.
