not that the z4 is not balanced, because it is a tidy car (dunno about resale though......), but the boxster S is a damn fine car. on most tracks at the DE level, faster that any 993 and pretty much can keep up (barely) with the 996s in capable hands.

what i like are the upgraded brakes, balance, and engine noise. it's glorious. the growl of the S54 is okay, but i am personally hooked on the flat six wail.
Old timer curmudgeon.
