    If it was an 'M' it would be a Z4 and after weighing it all up a Boxster S is cheaper to run than a Z4M.

    That said the Z4M is a hell of a car.

    The boxter s is a great car.. Had a friend who had one for 6 years.. Lovely to drive and the engines sound gorgeous.. But very different compared to the ZMRs...

    It is a standard 2.7. Has factory aircon and electric seats. Rare in that it has a blue roof with blue leather but then so did the Z3. Since I bought it I have upgraded the roof and lights to the facelift spec and fitted 18" wheels which fill the arches out better and also help with the handling.

    i will get some more pics including the inside up later.

    Yes It is a very different car to drive from a Zed. but with the engine mid mounted it feels less twitchy on the limit. Also the noise the engine makes when revved hard is just sexual.

    It was only a joke, I can understand if you didnt see the funny side, Sorry if it caused offence.

    Porsche on a zed forum will be fair game though. I would expect it if I posted mine on a Porsche forum.

    But if you put 'Mr Green' cos you think I may be envious, you are mistaken..

    Nice car though

    As I have said before Karl Nice Motor. different breed to the Z3, so cant be compared to each other. A lot more refined :-bd

    Not as quick off the mark as my 2.8 though!

    Boxster=7.2
    Roadster 2.8=6.9
