I test drove the '02 Boxster S after I drove my friends '01 M3.... NO COMPARISON. The M3 beat it in speed, feel and wow factor. The boxster S just did not accelerate, felt small and cost more!

Only good thing about the boxster is that it makes a good hummmm if you rev it hard. But the M3 kicks ass when you rev it hard (as you know).

So you see the outcome of my decision ;)

:D :D :D

if I have to choose I would go with the Porsche Boxster S- " there is NO substitute", the M3 is nice, but it's only another factory moded E46 coupe ... !






PS: I was in the same situation thinking between 330Ci, Box.2.7, M3 and Box.S, well did ordered Boxster S ..... but then on the end I desided to purchase 330Ci and save for Carrera (cuz base Carrera is almost the same as loaded Box.S)!


3C ;)

If you want to compare cars you should compare it with a 911. An M3 against a Boxster-S is not fair. The M wins on all counts.

That's what I thought...

When I drove the test car in my dealership around the middle of 2001. I was actually trembling after I drove it...you really have to get use to driving this ultimate driving machine!!!

Tough decision...if it were a year ago, I'd say go with the Porsche Boxster S. But after owning a BMW, and even though its just a 325, I'd say go with the M3!! And if you want the drop top, go with the M3 Cabriolet...or the Porsche Carerra..:dunno:

Geez. How lazy are you? You can do it with one hand and not even have to get out of the car. :tsk: :tongue:

I'd rather not have an automatic closing mech if possible, just because it adds so much weight to the car. Look at the M3 Cab vs. the Couple. Ouch.
