Boxster been juicing

I spilled some "Monster Energy Drink" in my Boxster and look what happened!

Actually, I still have the Boxster. I am selling it and putting away the money for the New S yet to come out.

After almost buying every car/truck on the market in the last 3 months(330,M3, c class, F250, sti, Si, 545i, 550i, A4, S4, escalade, Yukon). A little horse trading got me the H2 at a deal from a friend. I was so friggin tired of Car Dealers..especially BMW. They called me yesterday morning begging me to come in and close on a car this month(they being two bmw dealers, same dealer network though). I made an offer of 52k for a 58k sticker M3 and 32k for my Boxster and they said they were insulted. No counter offer, nothin. I said "Bl-- M-", called my friend and said I'd buy his truck. Now I can afford to keep the Boxster. Before you ask, it gets 10mpg around town and 13-14 on the highway(think Cayenne Turbo) BTW I almost bought a cpo'ed Cayenne Turbo but the price was more than twice as much as the 04 H2.

I hear the Hummers are expensive to insure. True?

Your Boxster is now your economy car as far as fuel goes, huh?

A new forum member I know from my area of the country bought a boxster as his economy car... his other ride is a Carrera.

I am sure I am not even on Exxon's thank you list BruceLee; but thanks for thinking so highly of me.

Insurance was cheaper than Boxster by $20/six months. But considering my Boxster was just $50/six months more than the Focus I had before it, I must be at the bottom of the rates.

When my father saw it , he reminded me that his daily driver was a DOT yellow pickup when I was a kid. He was the same age as me now, weird huh.

I drove that new BMW 330i for two days and not one person looked at my car really. Coming from the Boxster, which generates many remarks, it was like having got a bad haircut. You think you don't care what others think, but you notice it when it is gone.

I just like it as a mobile office, laptop out..making calls plenty of room. I don't talk and drive, the boxster cured me of that.

Looks really clean man. I'm not a fan of the H2's but it looks pretty nice. Congrats.

When people risk their lives, shouldn't it be for something very important?
Well, it better be.
But what is so important about driving faster than anyone else?
Lots of people go through life doing things badly. Racing's important to men who do it well.
When you're racing, it's life. Anything that happens before or after is just waiting.
