My dad has a Boxster Spyder and I have driven it many times. Awesome car for canyons and track. Yes the top is a pain in the arse to put up, but it is not that bad once you know how to do it. Spyder is a great car and if the financing was better when I was looking I would have ordered one, instead of the M3. Just my .02.
