65% sure of it, takin a peek at a boxster in the seal gray [;)]
I just can't keep the SLK running long enough to enjoy it, been plagued w/too many problems. Again the CEL came on again monday, since its been out of the shop 4 days I think I get the hint. I love the looks of the benz but I need a car I can get into and not worry about it starting or something going wrong. Since this is my primary car it has to be more reliable. I have also looked at the z4, but just dont get into the looks. I also looked at the vette, pretty hot ride but its too electronic in the end, something to be said for a bit of classic roadster feel/look. I think the porsche might be a good comprimise. And the reliablity seems to be pretty decent on the porsches, that and along with a 2 additional year/100k warranty (in contrast to starmarks 1) gives me a lot more confidence.

Hey Mike, I'm sorry to hear about your SLK. The boxsters are pretty nice. I would personally go with a Boxster 'S' just because I think the regular boxster's performance isn't that great. I mean it's not bad, but I would probably pay the differential and get an 'S. Nonetheless, they look very cool and get alot of attention. I was thinking about possibly getting a vette (before my SLK) ,but just realized the gas consumption would probably kill me, cause I drive alot. but their nice cars as well.. I don't think you'll go wrong either way.

well I may be around still not sure im kickin the mb to the curb yet, esp since im disputing a IRS tax claim, which might make $$ kinda tight. I think the slk knew its on the block cause the CEL turned off. Oh its been a fun cpl of wks. The boxster I was looking at is a s version, a lot more umph than the 230 I have. Course the vette hands down rocks em for raw pwr.
