I have to say the cars they stock were generally in much better condition than other second hand dealers.

I suspect they did not take you seriously
I don't think that was the case, it seems by their reviews that they just don't do test drives. Utterly bizarre.

Re: Warranty protection when buying from dealership

I dont buy their claim that this one had a list price of 116k. It doesnt have a sport chrono pack, standard color, standard wheels and no expensive options I could see from the pics. Yeah, logo in the headrests and white speedometer... but even at 2021 prices do you not get near that.
Pricing is ok - Boxsters are just damned expensive as used cars (or keep the value well depending on perspective). I was in the market for the same before and opted for an e89 35i Z4 instead - cause it was about the same new but 50% cheaper used...
