    everyone here has a valid point. you have no "credit" because you have access to the internet, and know how to post on car forums. your image consists entirely of your ability to convey your thoughts as text. if you want to come across as a kid, type like one. it says that you never took the time to learn proper grammar. you'll catch heat like this anywhere you go. the people who get along here all know how to take a joke. so, get a clue before you get all pissy. oh, and if you threaten to leave, nobody will bat an eye. however, if you come in mature, using decent grammar, asking apropriate questions or making justified comments, you'll be welcomed. we're not snobs, just jaded by the dumb little kids that are on the boards these days.

    Man, it's so weird that this is the only forum where people are actually mature enough to try to be grammatically correct. I even put in an apostrophe. Back to the original topic: The Boxster is a wonderfully nice car; it has consistently been at the top of handling and "best sports car" competitions in both Road & Track and Car and Driver. I wouldn't mind having one myself (if only insurance people would believe me when I say I'm a safe 16-yr old driver). That being said, if one were to buy a 2002 wrx for about 17k, and spend the money saved by avoiding the Boxster on performance mods, I would say the rex would win on a roadcourse. But in the end, we all have flat engines, so we should just get along.

    I really need to find all these mythical people that pay 17k for a 2002 WRX. I keep hearing it bandied around, and if the 05s retain their value as well I'm looking forward to unloading mine in a few years!

    I was just using the price Road & Track used for their long term wrx a few years ago. It had the $3k BBS wheel package, rear wing, and some random STi bits. I can't afford anything above 8k right now, so I don't really know the prices on used wrx's.

    I think a lot of the hype has to do with her eccentricity. To be fair she's a very good actress in my opinion; did you see her in "Taking Lives," for example? It's an action/suspense/thriller and they're a dime a dozen, but she plays her role very well IMO and the twist at the end is great largely because of how she acted.

    i think shes overrated, maybe a 7 at best, and a very mediocre actress.

    Well, I agree she's no Hepburn, but look at how well she deals with roles that are really not all that serious -- Lara Croft, for example. That movie wasn't an art film by any stretch of the imagination, but she did manage to keep it watchable and more fun than it ought to have been for a movie based on a video game. I think she's a very decent actress on her day.

    Oh dear god. As you can see I don't post on here often, but I just had to tell you that I nearly choked on my graham cracker after coming across your post. In the event I had died, I think that makes you directly responsible. I should sue.

    Anyways, I debated writing this because you are already drowning in a sea of criticism, but why not.

    While I feel our cars are good value, theres no way I'm going to tell a 911 owner that his car is inferior to my WRX or even a STi because: a.) I adore Porsches b.) I know better c.) {refer to b} I've stopped inhaling paint thinner as a hobby.

    Sensible responses have already been posted in droves reagrding what you label as the "mid life crisis car", the Boxster. Under no circumstances would I, even with an STi, "be a hata" on someones Boxster at an autocross or a track day, only for them to wipe the floor with me in the turns. The only consolation I will have is the fact that my sticker price was somewhat less, and that I will still be able to get to Stop and Shop in a few inches of snow. Is it too bad that the residents on some Porsche forum don't realize the virtues of owning a Subaru?? Yes. Am I going to register with that forum so I can really show that I know NOTHING about cars to its members by declaring my WRX a superior automobile using incorrect grammar and very little basis for comparision? Not a chance.
