That boxster has a salvage title. That kills a lot of resale value right there. And it's a chick car

As long as it is bought cheap enough I really wouldn't worry about a salvage title.... Its a driver... not a collector car....

What does that mean, salvage title? Has it been in an accident?

Usually it means some insurance company considered it a total write off. It would cost more to fix than it was worth. As soon as they pay off the policy holder the car belongs to the insurance company. They don't want a car so they sell is as salvage.

I have seen some scary cars that are "salvaged." Unless I knew the complete history of what and how it was fixed I would never touch a salvaged car.

Many cars that have an airbag deployment are totaled because it cost so much to repair the airbag system properly.

Ya ya ya...

If it hasn't been swimming... and I can tell it was fixed right... I'll buy a salvage car if the price is adjusted accordingly.... If I just want something to drive....

You'd be genuinely surprised at how wet a car has to get before they'll total it..............................

Never understood that mentality. Doesn't matter to me.

If I can afford the S, I'll get one.

I have never driven one, but I sure would like to try. I bet they're a hoot to drive, even the least powerfull versions.

Besides Schumi, you already have long hair and pinkish lips, go ahead, buy the girly version, nobody will notice...

Evening boys.... Just went and got the wifi set up in my grandmas house... Delivered her new laptop as well... Such a shame... Its a nice machine... all she does is play those stupid treasure hunt games...

I give it less than a month before I am getting phone calls b/c something doesn't work..



In other news... I met my future landlord... I will be living in one of his duplexes in the fall...just not sure which end and when I will move in... Depends on the current tenants.
