Slightly strange trade topic (admin approved!)

Looking at out of the box solutions for thinning my car fleet. The Boxster is a sweetheart, located in Michigan. Valued at $9000.

Wonderfully driving base Boxster is ready for a great summer. Approximately 67,000 miles on the clock (will go up slowly). The car had new Continental Extremecontact Sport tires fitted last June--with probably 7,000 miles on them so far. Beyond replacing a power steering hose, the car has been trouble free and carefully looked after by the Porsche Shop at ArborMotion in Ann Arbor. This isn't a perfect example, but functionally it's nearly there and should provide exciting, perfectly balanced driving for years to come.

Some Good Stuff:

Zero rust (car stored winters, as you'd expect) New convertible top and motor was installed by the previous owner New battery this spring Alternator replaced 10,000 miles ago

Some Fiddly Stuff:

Paint on lower front fascia isn't perfect Dashboard button for central locking needs to be replaced Lock ring on driver's side door needs to be reinstalled (the lock still works) Some discoloration on the plastic over the transmission tunnel / gear lever Stone chip in the lower windscreen (it's not spreading) The rear brake discs / pads are at 50%, according to last service appointment. Hand brake is sticky
