probably around aroud 27mpg i'd say, I do drive in sensibly though and do regular 6 monthly oil changes with synthetic mobil 1 oil as stated in the service book, it doesnt ask for much really, its never missed a beat and I love it - get one and when you do want a rag its great fun! AWD too and removeable towbar - I've upset a boxster owner and a lot of other muppets that give you grief in much more expensive cars

theres alot of imports in the uk now, bit harder to insure as there more powerfull generally, mines a UK Turbo 2000 with a CAT1 installed from the factory, group 17,

You always go for the sport which looks the same just a 2 litre without the turbo and selectable AWD, turbo's as fixed

drop me a PM if you want any advice
