  1. Your Boxster looked great and was reasonably priced. I think the location and kms probably was the deterring factor.
  2. with the financial and political situation, as well as winter coming on, i think boxsters will continue to get cheaper. 987's are being listed and sold on car sales in the early 30's (some in mid 20's) and the modern looking 981 listings are dipping below $70k.
  3. Yep, some say this is a contributing factor to various engine problems and recommend at least annual engine oil changes.
  4. 993 manual cab at autohaus for $90k http://csndealers.carsalesnetwork.com.au/details/1996-porsche-911-carrera-no-badge-993/OAG-AD-16535808?dealerId=AGC-SELLER-15162
  5. according to https://www.news.com.au/national/breaking-news/watchdog-warns-of-vic-luxury-hire-company/news-story/a98cd6a2aae1d409fcc26e2de93b63e2 "Consumer Affairs Victoria issued a public warning on Tuesday about the alleged conduct of Melbourne Luxury Car Hire, a Southbank firm which leases high-performance and luxury vehicles. Consumers contacted the authority 46 times between November 2017 and August 2018, alleging the company either did not return security deposits, totalling several hundred thousand dollars, in a timely manner, if at all. The security deposits for the vehicles ranged from $2000 to $30,000 and were meant to be paid back within 10 business days of the lease ending. Among the complainants were car owners who rented their cars to the company advising they had not received payments, the watchdog says. CAV director Simon Cohen has concerns the hire company may be acting unfairly in giving back deposits late, or at all, offering unfair rental agreements, or not paying lease fees to car owners who have provided cars to the company. He warned people to be "very cautious" before dealing with Melbourne Luxury Car Hire, saying by doing so consumers may be agreeing to unfair contracts and find it hard to get their security deposits back."
  6. Based on the listing it is a my06 which is likely to have the later design bearing which is of less concern.
  7. Manual, coupe, x51 all add value. Best spec. For this kind of spec prices have indeed been appreciating but not to the point where they go above a manual 997. No upgraded IMS less perceived value Gt3 body kit is subjective. 140k kms will be impacted by IMS bearing perceptions and Internet rumours of cylinder scoring etc. High 50s would be a good buy price IMO assuming good PPI.

    Buying a 986

    It does look nice in that colour scheme. I'm in Canberra. i don't think i'm mechanical enough to discover any problems but i'm happy to go take photos or video. There's also another 986 listed in Canberra on carsales at $17k. it has been listed for a while and is just a 2.5L in black https://www.carsales.com.au/private/details/Porsche-Boxster-1997/SSE-AD-4908826/?Cr=0

    Buying a 986

    at that price you could get a 987 which simply by virtue of being younger is less likely to present issues.
  10. manual coupes holding value, tiptronic cabs depreciating most. Here are last 4 recent carsales ads with list price that are no longer there now.. Title Price Trans KMs Body Location 1998 Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet 996 Manual $39,500 183,000 km Convertible WA 2008 Porsche 911 Carrera S 997 Auto $94,900 89,513 km Convertible VIC 2010 Porsche 911 Carrera S 997 Series II Auto $134,900 65,492 km Coupe NSW 2005 Porsche Boxster 987 Manual $26,990 Manual 104,973 km Convertible QLD
  11. Ims solution, after market stereo, safe colour choice, low kms for age, are all pluses. If it was manual high 50s might not be unrealistic.
  12. correct. M96 and M97 had the single row bearings for early (2005) 997 builds. After that they use the double row bearing which is much more reliable, but also much harder to replace.
