Congratulations! You'll save at the pump for sure, but I think you will notice the difference from that twin-turbo V8 you're giving up.

I completely agree. For that reason, I think the MSport 235i will more than suffice for most drivers. By the way, I used to have insane fun with my 981 Boxster S.
