I remember seeing a yellow Porsche boxter at Worli Seaface. I'm not sure whether it's the same one but that was surely much more well maintained! I actually don't like the interiors of that Boxter but the shape of hte car is just cute n compact. And guys U must checkout the BoxterS 50th Anniversary interiors or even the 2005 version those are much better than this one!! I don't understand how this car's got such a cheap, dirty looking interior!!

so that goes for any car..

ppl who can afford a M800 cant afford an esteem and ppl who can afford an esteem cant afford a lancer and then an accord and then C class, E class S class, Bentley and then maybach

what is your point..

obviously anyone who buys looks in their budget and buys the best that he can afford..I dont c anything wrong with it,

the reason every company has a flagship and low end is, cuz they could appeal to different kinds of ppl, mercedes wouldnt have made an A class and then a maybach if it was not true..

so whats your point

and I can also tell u there are many ppl who can afford but are not in the habbit of spending, I can show you people who wil buy a maybach , a ferrari and something else, all on the same day and wouldnt even bother, but they prefer to go as simple as they can..(some muradabadi friends, brass exporters)

You would know that a car doesn't have to be expensive to be entertaining, now don't you? It would surprise you probably to know, that inspite of being 8 years old, it still teaches brand new roadsters a lesson in driving dynamics.

I agree with Ported on this statement. It does really teach the new ones a thing or two in terms of road dynamics. It even still manages to get the better of the Z4, by a small margin, but a margin nevertheless.

This car in the pics here is a previous gen boxster as the new ones have clear headlamps.

This belief is a bit off from what i've read about z3 owners as well as mags. The car is a nightmare, has scuttle shake all over the place and isn't exactly bmw "fun" like you'd think it to be. The only saving grace is the coupe where the handling has improved and the scuttle shake is absent due to its cab design.

My all time fav is the caterham super 7. now this is the car which beat even the mclaren f1 in autocar's 0-100-0 tests. not 100kmph but 100mph. I thinks its time was 10.3 some seconds. and its one of the best track cars one could buy for less than 30k pounds.

cheap it is but definitely not boring.
