Wow, and still You got back seats, boot, and the stylish look. Ofcourse Boxte drives better, but its less a daily driver car. More like second car.

Wait a minute...the Boxster is faster on every test track here, yet only has 54pts vs 73 pts for the M3? Oh, except Rockingham, Boxster ran in the wet.
