I neither argue nor disagree with anything you said. Nor do I begrudge anyone who is in your position or RJ, I love it and think it is nothing short of phenomenal. My post was not targeted at that end of the spectrum. It was intended for the other end of the spectrum who come in, read about all the things they "must have" and somehow feel they will not be happy with their own decision. It was to re-assure them that they would, nothing more...
I also don't discredit the value or advice given and taken on the forum at all to
's point, nothing of the sort and that should not be implied from what I was saying.
To answer your questions:
Yes, I would ABSOLUTELY love to have a Turbo, it was just out of the budget I set for myself when I priced it out but I just turned 42 so plenty of time to "grow" into things
My point was when I am IN MY Macan I don't miss the fact I don't have a Turbo at all, I love and am grateful for where I am and for anyone new and on the fence I am sure they will be too!
As for the Boxster I am actually doing very well thus far... I am being smart about it and if we are honest it has even LESS in it now than when I bought it
As for $$ spent, I bought the car for under 30, I have about another 20 into it thus for however that is with Rennlist, Panjo, Ebay, negotiating with vendors directly and buying $8000 seats for $3500, a $5k hardtop for $2k, $5k wheels for $2k etc etc etc... In "reality" the car should have been 36 and if I added it up I would probably in for another $35 at list prices on parts and labor. So about 71 so far and a few things still to go, or a 2nd Macan I guess. (Don't confuse the Turbo or GTS being out of my budget with not being able to afford it, they are not always synonymous
BUT........ Look at this
How many people can say they have their own bespoke livery for their track car
She is starting to sound pretty nasty too. Much better in person!
