Default 2006 911 Carrera S Cabriolet

Just got the car but decided I prefer the mid engined Cayman S
It's a 997 (2nd gen watercooled), with the M97 motor (06 and up), which doesn't have the infamous IMS problem.
Convertible with manual tranny (not very common)
3.8L, 355 hp, 295 ft-lbs
Located in Northern CA

Desirable options include:
PASM (adaptive suspension with comfort/stiff button, and also stiffens and softens on its own depending on G's and bumps) - very desirable option
Sport Chrono (lap timer, sport button which makes stability control less intrusive, sharpens throttle response, stiffens shocks)
seat heaters (it's a convertible!)

140k+ miles
But very clean
Pricing is $5k below Edmunds!

Great looking car! Are you going to go for one of the older cayman's with the flat six? Pre turbocharged era? Big cayman fan here. Good luck with your sale.

I plan on a 987S that's for sale, with some track suspension mods. Downside vs. the 911 is that it needs a deep oil sump to address oiling issues.

Sale on my 911 is pending.

But I decided on a 987.2 (newer) Cayman which the factory fixed the oiling issues, but the seller backed out. Grrr.
