It's actually considerably cheaper to lease a Z4 35i than even a regular Boxster.

I miss my old 986, but I'm not going to pay e93 M3 money for a Boxster.

The Z4 is a great cruiser you said it perfectly, while the boxster really is not.

But the Boxster is more fun to drive spiritedly.. yet it's still a damn soft-top
If the boxster had a hard top, I'd consider it even if it cost a bit more than a Z4..but a soft top is useless.

I've owned a couple difference verts for the past 4 years, and I will never own another soft top vert as my primary car.

And here's a great idea - SOFT TOP convertible - drop some fat; those soft tops are high quality these days.
I disagree.... too noisy, doesn't look as nice, older technology. only reason we got a SLK before the Z4 was the e85 was a soft top
