Looking to be a first time Porsche owner and join the family, that being said I need some opinions on which car would you choose out of the 2
Both cars have similar tech configs with the 09 having the bluetooth as the bonus

08 boxster $42,000 CAD
- 22,900 miles
- CPO
- Auto


09 boxster $45,500 CAD
- 31,600
- CPO
- PDK

obviously given the small price difference, the main point of this question is even though its $3000 cheaper, how many people would roll the dice on the cheaper and less milage 08 car given on the IMS problem. Please also state your reason

09 has the better engine and WAY better transmission for track. With that small of a price delta, go for the 09.

They're both priced WAY too high, though. You should be looking somewhere around or a little less than US$30k for a Boxster of that age.
I live in canada, an 09/10 is priced between $40k - $48k:wall:

The 09 with PDK and no potential for IMS problems is the better choice by far IMO. The 08 with the Tiptronic isn't going to hold its value nearly as well as the 09 with PDK, and isn't going to be as fun to drive.
