Porsche BoxsterGreat sports car
Pros: Seat comfort. Sports steering wheel (option). Bose. Nav.
Cons: Power, or lack of!Overpriced status symbol. Looks great in Guards Red w/ 18' wheels, and handles very well. Don't like clutch, but shifts very well w/ Porsche short throw. Best nav system ever. If the Z4 weren't so ugly in '06, I'd prefer the Z4si. Love the new Z4! The Boxster in Red/Grey/Grey does turn heads & look sexy. Great on highways and good mileage on road. Power seats are a great option. Needs a 6 CD player at that price. Car stickered at amost 60K with 18 inch S wheels & all the options. needs more power for those bucks. Brakes are very good, and stops on a dime. Heard Boxster S brakes are very good (even better) as far a stopping ability but problematic. Prefer the BMW for the money. First Boxster & last. May keep it a long time for summer fun. New ones have direct injection which is a problem in all cars. Build up carbon deposits and very expensive to replace. Not make for US gas.
