Well I am a BMW fan but the porsche boxster is just toooo nice.
The only thing I can say for sure about price is the m3 will be 2k less.


So which is a better can (be honest):
1999 BMW M3
or
1999 Porsche Boxster

IMO I think boxters are extremely ugly.

My advice drive the M3 and it will sell its self :-)

Yeah the boxster looks fugly yo. Im dead serious.

and since u said 99 boxster, that means u got no possibility for a boxster S. The boxster gets pwnd by all roadster (Z4, s2000) and owned by the M.

The M is faster, sleeker, and far more economically beneficial.

its called heel and toeing (sum peepz say toe and heel).

all my friends with sticks do it 24/7

i do it whenever i drive their cars

its just way too fun

It's essetially downshifting but much faster than a simple nuettal rev match shift down operation because the rev match is quickly done WHILE down shifting instead of stoppin in nuetral. also the heel does the rev match as the car is braking in corners by pressing the gas wit the toes

they have special pedals for this that have a little extension on the side that kinda looks like a sliding out door.

honestly the M3 outperforms the boxster in every way except for maybe status wise.
