Eventually more stuff to come...

Awesome color............ How does it compare to the BoxsterS?

I had a 987 the 2nd grn BoxsterS.

Handling: similar for the larger mass

Steering: boxster definitely gave more feedback to the texture of the road, M3 seems weighted but not the same

Acceleration: M3 quicker of course, yet in past track days I caught up to e92s in corners

Braking: don't think it's fair to compare Porsche 4 piston fronts/2 piston rears with track pads/SS lines to the stock M3 brakes. However no fade yet in the back roads.

Comfort: M3
