I'm happy to announce that after thorough research of this site, exhaustive efforts browsing online ads daily and intense negotiations with a dealership, I'm about to be the proud new first time owner for a 2008 Porsche Boxster S (manual of course!).
This vehicle has 2k miles, PCM 3.0 nav system, 19" rims, color matched interior of the cars color, all the other little options that really drive the price up. Includes a 6 year 100k warranty (1 year is burned off already).
All for the nicely negotiated price of $47491 out the door! A lot of arguing ensued once we haggled the price down to this and I announced it as the out the door price, but the dealership caved (although they did scold me a bit).
Unfortunately, I'm still deployed so this little gem will be shipped to my garage and sit there until my return in Sep. Guess what I'm doing on my 2 weeks of R&R!!!
I appreciate all the posts on this site as they largely contributed to my understanding of what I wanted in a vehicle, what was available and what an acceptable price was.
Thanks for the info!!!
