hey jake: it's your money and we're all happy you spent it the way that you like to do so, but were it my money, i'd have taken the porsche.

i've got personal issues with BMWs built in the US (1), BMWs built based on lowest cost bidder parts (2), the new BMW styling (3), BMW's decision to stick with single piston-caliper brakes (4), lack of an available LSD (5), and while i like the driving dynamics of the Z4 chassis, i am not a fan of the electric steering (6).

if they update the front end in 18 months because of slow sales, then the naysayers would have won. that's all i've got to say. and i'll gladly admit that i'm wrong if it doesn't get a redo on the front in 16-18months.

should be right about when the new boxster rolls out?
