Cons: CD-changer. No random play between discs(picky, but you asked)
Advice: Buy it - not a great 'value' but I'm glad my common sense lost out to my love for the car.Drives like no other car I have ever owned. Great handling, acceleration(6-speed), engine sounds and overall fun to drive. I have owned a 98 Corvette and 04 350Z . The Boxster S shines in comparison. The only thing better is a 911.

Advice: Try it, you'll like it...........The test drive was great, thrilling to be exact and I bought the car!!! It was just what I was looking for, seal gray metallic, Triptonic, etc. This is my 2nd Porsche and I AM a fan!
