Thanks for the interesting campare notes Equ. It made me think a little but I still want a 981 as it will be my only car.

Josh I wish but I just don’t have the usable space for two cars.

Thanks for all the votes pushing me in the direction I was already going. I’ve had 4 VMW’s in a row now and I think it’s time for a change.

BMW will feel faster in a lot of ways oodles and oodles of torque. All over. And if you didnít have to compare to a 987 or 981, itís great.

Problem is....driving a mid engine Porsche is about the best thing there is. The BMW will feel like a solid I got of metal. Solid. Heavy.

The Boxster will feel like an exoskeleton built around a charmer of an engine. Quality OEM damping. Great induction noise thatís real. Thereís just not many cars that reward with that kind of driving experience.
