Newbie Needs Help.

Hi everyone,

I'm new to this forum as well as the porsche world. I am looking at a 1999 Boxster, used with 122kms.(I'm from vancouver) Any issues or concerns about this model? And would like some tips on what to check for when buying a used boxster. Thanks in advance!

Welcome to Babblers and possibly the Porsche world.

You can look at the Buying a Used Boxster post to answer a lot of your initial questions.

Welcome, and good luck with your search, there are a few good examples out there in the Boxster world. During your search you might want to include cars in Washington and Oregon as well (assuming you meant Vancouver, BC?).

Just my 2 cents, that is a lot of miles, but depending on what you want to spend maybe the price is right...

That's not a lot of miles!
122 km = 76 miles. But I think he meant 122,000 km which would be 76,250 miles which is still 100,000 less than what I have on my '98 (176,100 miles).
I also have a '99 (for sale) with that exact mileage (76,300).
Happy Boxstering,
