2000 Porsche Boxster 2.7L from North America
Awesome ride, best sports car in its class
Leaking main engine seal at 97,000 km.
Leaking spark plug seal at 97,000 km.
Replaced spark plugs, ceramic covers and plug coils at 97,000 km.
New clutch at 97,000 km.
Besides a few problems that occurred as a result of improper maintenance by the previous owners, the car runs like a dream.
The power and handling of this car with the 2.7 L 217 HP engine is amazing. The engine note at high RPM is very unique and makes a Porsche what it is.
Braking is very quick and responsive.
Manual 5 speed transmission is smooth shifting and the clutch transition is seamless.
The seats are very comfortable, the interior dash controls are well placed and all work as they should.
Coffee cup holder would have been nice, but it is a Porsche.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Can I ask how much all those repairs cost? (the ones at 97,000km)

I'm in Australia, and these are the costs I have been quoted:
Rear main seal, clutch kit, fly wheel, bolts and labour = $3000.
IMS bearing replacement with an LN Engineering part + labour = $1700.
Water pump and engine bearing = $1400.
Oil change + magnetic sump plug = $400.
Brakes (rotors & pads all 4 corners using OE parts) + labour = $1200.
New key, supplied, cut and programmed = $325.
