    You'll get shit on by most of OT for having the cheapest and girliest porsche there is, even if it is an S and not a base.

    My mechanic says you practically have to drop the engine to change the oil. That doesn't bode well for maintenance.

    Boxster S is cool.
    Base Boxster is not.

    Anyone who disagrees has never been on a track and is a poser anyway.

    Faster doesn't always mean more enjoyable.... but I'd still seriously consider the 370Z over the Porsches.

    Mid engine layout is a plus but I've never warmed up to its looks.

    i test drove the boxster s (280hp version, like in that pic) and its a fun car. i didn't push it very hard, but found out later that these cars have no limited slip, which makes no sense to me.

    i was also worried about maintenance. apparently its not that bad.

    i don't like the 370's looks much. i could go and drive one, maybe it would change my mind.

    People who hate on the Boxster S don't give that car enough credit. Handles like a fucking monster, is fast, brakes hard, mid engine..

    So it's not a 911, big fucking deal.. It's still a respectable car in it's own right.

    Go drive one. OT will crap on you for buying one, but it's one of the most enjoyable Roadsters I've ever driven. I should have just gone ahead and bought one when I bought the R32. :hs:

    i loved the s2k on paper, but for a daily driver i wouldn't want one.

    where's the torque? for quick runs around town i'm not gonna stay at 6k+rpm, which ruins quick-few-seconds-throttle-mashing opportunities in town

    but i could even live with that given the rest.

    what i cant live with is the cramped seating. no leg room, and i sit relatively upright when i drive and i'm 6'1. i drove the car and found myself hunching down to have more vision because you sit too high compared to the windshield
