Pros: 18 inch wheels
Cons: The fact that you have to pay for every feature.
Advice: Shop around, determine what you must have, locate the car and bargain. Alternative is to order the one you want and wait but negotiating becomes much harder.Its a great time to buy a porsche.

Pros: Total control
Cons: Luggage space

With the top down wind noise is minimal and the stereo is easy to hear even at 75 mph! If you have the money you cannot beat a Porsche. I have had this car for over 6 months and the novelty hasn't worn off. I am as excited to drive it today as the day I drove it off of the dealer lot. Must options are: 18-inch rims, sport exhaust, CD-changer, and upgraded leather. I have the navigation system as well and it's useful, but requires too much attention with a manual trans.
