08 e93 vs 08 911 Turbo Cab

I test drove one today, but not for long, the dealer was a bit of a jerk about it.

I liked it, the fit and finish seem tighter and it's a lighter car with a better power to weight ratio.

The turbo lag was really noticeable...

I'm looking to step up to something higher end. Any thoughts?

What about an R8 convertible? They look way better than a 911, and much better interior too.

I made the switch to 911 t and never looked back... the lag that you mentioned barely noticeable esp in sports mode. No comparision to the bimmer. May be try another dealer, some of them can be a little stuck up.
Good luck with your search.
