porsche is definitely gone...

i was on vacation so didnt get a chance to really even drive the new car much...i think i dont like it hahaha
id actually prefer it if it was a coupe, so i might sell it or trade it for a coupe...
i got a 03 m3 with just over 50k on it...
has some nice mods on it like CSL bumper and HIDs and clear lights and its got windows tinted, manual, and some 50cent 20inch wheels (u know me and chrome). but it really doesnt matter since i probably wont keep it long enough to care
l;ove the sport mode tho hehehe
power wise, box feels like a scooter compared to this...everything else, not that much better, other than u can actually listen to the radio haha

heres some pics, hopefully they show up

I was checking them out about a month ago to see if I could
pick one up cheap as a DD. Given how the economy has
really pushed down values of most cars.

I couldnt believe how much people are still asking for them.
In the 30k's for 2005+ with less than 50k miles.

In 05 they were only 50k to start with.

I think I am just going to wait a little longer and see where
prices go.

I own both and there like apples an oranges. Both great cars on its own. If I have to choose I will keep the BoxsterS without a single doubt...

phew, that looks much better now.

Chrome wheels on a sports car is such a no-no - let me think again, I am hard pressed to think of ANY car where chrome wheels look good, except gangsta rides of course

Much better looking...such a nice car to have done that to; reminded me of this (insert picture here).

Chris, I agree with you. I think chrome wheels look completely out of place on a sports car and don't care for them on any vehicle; but that's just my opinion.

Gee DJ I don't know man. Maybe you should have kept those chromies. A whole new side business opportunity. You could offer farmers in the area a valuable service. Simply parking your car near their corn field those chrome wheels would scare the crows away nicely.
