Vehicle: 2004 Porsche 911 Turbo AWD 2dr Cabriolet (3.6L 6cyl Turbo 6M)

I have had the my car for two years. The only warranty problem was a CD player issue. Initially, it burned oil, but this lessened with time. I have tracked the car and it is excellent, though you feel the weight. It is easy to drive every day and the convertible mechanism is great (you can use it up to 31 mph). Its four wheel drive has saved me on the track. My only complaint is the squeaking from the hard-top, which I have not been able to fix for more than a few days. This is my favorite of the three 911s that I have owned over the last few years.

The right front brake calliper was scratched on delivery, they replace it. Went to a Porsche Sponsered Driving School in Phoenix. Started shifting hard between 1st and 2nd and wouldn't go into 1st sometimes. After much insistance a new transmission was installed at 1600 miles. Now have 2300 miles on it w/o additional issues. NO MORE RACING FOR ME. Uses about 1.6 quarts of oil every 900 miles, which isn't unusual for a high performance motor. The quality is fantastic. I had a SL 500 before this and had many, many problems.This is my 2nd new Porsche,it would be difficult to drive anything but a Turbo especially a Cabriolet.

I am debating between a new 2005/6 Boxster S and a 2006 911 cabriolet (both base and S models). The Boxster is immediately available (unless I want to order a 2006) and comes at a 3-7% discount to MS...

I am going through a bit of a similar dilemma now trying to decide if I want to get a Boxster S or, possibly, the new 997 911 S Convertible. I've been thinking that perhaps, if I got the 911, I could...
