Advice for buyers

What should I look for in a used Porsche Boxster sports?

Be wary of a car that looks like it hasn't been loved and cherished. Some owners might be tempted to save money by skipping services or using non-specialist garages, so a full dealer service history is essential on newer cars.

Build quality is first class, so look out for anything that's less than perfect - it usually means there are bigger issues afoot. Also look for poor-quality paintwork or general imperfections in the body - a sure sign of repairs.

Make sure all the controls and switches work properly, including the operation and condition of the hood. If you're buying from a dealer, make sure that any issues are sorted before you take delivery. If the wheel alignment isn't spot-on, the tyres wear rapidly and unevenly, so make sure you check before you buy.
