WTF is 1-Owner "mostly"?

Like 1-owner mostly but it changed hands 14 times in the last 2 years.
The AD explanation makes perfect sense. 2nd owner bought the car at 10k miles and held it until now. This is actually a very good deal considering the work done and car's history. If they can produce the paperwork for the work they listed and PPI comes clean, someone will be a very happy owner.

Repainted, already worn through one set of seats, and has the wrong wheels. Other than that, just peachy!

PASS!

This one actually sounds/looks nicer, at half the cost plus change...

2003 Porsche 911 996 Carrera 4S C4S 6-Speed Coupe New Clutch/IMS 1-Own 82K miles - $27990



That's actually a very nice looking car with great service history and a decent price, if it had under 60K miles I bet it would have sold already...

One owner at a time I suppose.

I would have considered the car I bought in the 1-Owner "mostly" category. The car was being driven by the manager of the dealership for 3 months, but was exactly what the PO I bought it from wanted (C4, Cab, Tip, Seal Grey). Rather than get one ordered, he bought it from the manager at MSRP+. So in the 12 years of history, it was 3 months of being driven by the dealer, and the rest by one owner.

Carfax did show it as a two owner though based on those first 3 months.

I Like this bit:
" He was inserting the ims bearing and tapped the bearing too far in. Now the intermediate shaft is sideways in the housing.".

And this "Everything is included. It just needs the bearing removed and installed correctly to get it running again."

Well that should be easy........

This is a complete waste of a Taco wing. I truly hope this wasn't an OEM piece.

Yikes, it looks like it was a real OE taco wing. If so, I wonder if the seller realizes that wing was worth about a third of the value of that entire Boxster.

Ad copy:

Here is your perfect project. Large spoiler in pic has been removed and discarded as it was broken and quite frankly an eye sore.

Fresh from auction is a grey 2002 boxster 2.7 with 5 speed manual transmission.

The good:
used motor with 32000 miles on it
clean florida title
5 speed manual
aftermarket cold air intake
aftermarket wheels
Aftermarket full stainless steel exhaust from headers to tailpipe
New clutch
aftermarket carbon fiber rear trunk lid
aftermarket rear bumper


The bad:
Brakes need to be bled.
Front hood latch doesn't work. I have another latch included
drivers seat leather torn
Aftermarket rear bumper damaged and has really bad body work
interior trim is showing its age
rear oem spoiler is stuck in the up position
minor dings
front bumper has paint damage near passenger headlight
aftermarket carbon fiber rear lid will need repairs due to old spoiler holes.

I'm sure the "Taco-batwing" was damaged while he was crimefighting! That is one classy ride!
