Actually, for better or worse (mostly better, except perhaps the steering feedback) a lot of the "rawness" is gone from the new Boxster/Cayman-- if you haven't driven one yet, you should. Of course,...

Lol, nah I love the girlfriend, but I will try those guys in Brooklyn if I can't get my dealer to do it.

In April I swapped my 2011 M3 convertible for the new Boxster S and couldn't be happier! For me, those 1200 extra pounds made all the (fun-robbing) difference in the world.

Thanks, nhman-- I'll check that out. I was also thinking that it would be great to find a dealer that sells both Porsches and Bimmers, as they might be particularly interested in the M3. However, I...

I just looked at your web site. This is a very clever service but it looks as if you charge Manhattan residents $225 for each switch, i.e., $450/year. I think Pace charged me $75 for the lift time...

Mark,

My advice is to figure out what the dealer invoice price (his cost) is and offer him $1000 over that (as he undoubtedly gets additional profit back from BMW beyond what you're giving him)....

If I didn't care about a convertible, I'd get a Mustang Boss 302 and use the $25,000 savings for a WRX when it's raining or snowing.

That's because all of your ground contact depends upon four tiny little patches of tire. Thus, despite the fact that an M3 *weighs* almost as much as a steamroller, it's just not quite as stable, lol.
