The E36 is sublime. You want it.

Edit: And it’s not like you wouldn’t have cushier alternatives.

The convertible ones are indeed terrible. I'd look for another coupe. Ideally without a sunroof.

You inspired me. Think Iím selling The Turbo. And upgrading the 987.2 to a 718 Boxster S.

I donít drive my car enough so it makes sense to condense to me.

I wouldn't consider a 718 an upgrade personally, but it's a preference thing

I'm no longer waffling on selling the Boxster. I've made the decision to sell it.

Hopefully it doesn't take six months like it took to sell the last one.

Based on the other automotive projects you have ongoing this makes sense.
