OP, what's with starting all of the random threads throughout b'fest comparing maintenance costs of ______ [insert random BMW model here] with _____ [insert random Porsche model here]? You have that much time on your hands and thought you'd waste everyone else's too?
I have an 01 C4 996 and it has been a great car. I think you will pay more for routine stuff over the first four years. The 996 can be very expensive to repair if something breaks. I would go with the M3 if cost is an issue. . .
