I traded in my Audi A4 for a Porsche Boxter. I got an automatic with the sport package along with the premium package. It has been a fun car to have but the oil changes are $700.00 every 20,000 miles, and the Bridgestone tires wore out in 18,00 miles which were $1,500 dollars to replace. The interior is cheap for a Porsche, but the sounds system is awesome (Bose).
Bi-Xenon Headlights, Bose Sound System, One touch feature of Top, Tiptronic, leather, and muffler sound
Satellite radio, ipod hook-up, a sound when you lock the car with the keys, less wind noise when top is up, and better brakes...they squeak all the time and I have had them changed out by a Porsche Dealership.
We've had this car for about a year and a half. It is relatively fast, very comfortable and handles great. We had an '01 Boxster, which was a VW compared to this. It is not as fast as some other cars, but the handling more than makes up for it.
Handling, acceleration, Bose stereo
iPod and satellite radio connectivity, better mileage.
I previously owned a '99 blk on blk Boxster in '04. That car blew an engine at 72k miles that cost me $12k to replace. Due to my passion (possible stupidity) I traded in for a '06 Arctic Silver Boxster fully loaded. So far, I have finally had the Porsche experience but miss some of the 986 raw elements. The new '06 is more refined and had the gadgets but lacks some of the 986 prowlness and agility. Overall, the Boxster can't be beat. Buy one and see for yourself what fun you can have.
Heated seats, larger engine, and yes cup holders (hey I'm a coffee drinker).
