Boxster gone, now what???

Forum friends,

Even though my boxster s is gone ... i dont plan on going away from this great forum.
I enjoy everyone's input on every topic car related.

Now, my situation... looking for a used car in the 15-25k price range for my wife/myself to enjoy.

I am all over the place. my first choice is a merc CLK 500 convertible... does anyone have any insight on this car ..I get another convertible.. she gets the slushbox auto and I get the V8...

03 M convert ? any other ideas. My other car is an 02 audi a4 .. which will serve as my daily driver.

help me, as I am in post Boxster depression

Patrick

I am partial to M3's but don't know much about the E46 Convertible.
I have found this forum to be helpful.

Not my intention !!!!! .. but it did sell ... why kick a man when he's down.

Come down to SD so i can sit in your GT 3 seats.

If I were in your position, I'd buy a Elise or an Exige. But then, the wife and I work together, so I can afford to have one of our two cars be completely impractical.

Like a Boxster, for example.

If you plan on doing a good deal of track/autocross use then I'd go with an Elise or Exige. If you are looking for a cruiser that can hold a few friends then an M3 convertible. I guess it kinda depends on your budget and what your intentions are, but there are a lot of other options.
