Yeah that does look nice, would you go for that over an Elise? http://www.pistonheads.com/sales/1615943.htm

Think I'd maybe be stepping on my mates toes a bit although hes had his Exiege over a year and it costs twice as much so not like im toppering him Smiling and he suggested I got an Elise but the average joe probs wouldnt know the difference between them.

Yeah best mate just got a z4 Homer, not sure it would be top of my list anway to be honest, still a v nice car for 10k mind!
To me taht Lotus looks a bit like a showing off to the guys car compared to the ones Noble posted. That's just my opinion though.

Boxster FTW

Try to get one after the '05 facelift and with the optional 911 turbo wheels:

Not the best example as it's just over your budget and has pretty high milage. But that would make ANY female cream her panties (and isn't that what it's all about?)

Sure Elise's are great track cars but they severely lack the sheer class and prestige associated with Porsche ownership.

Laughing out loud

Nah they have all got decent cars to be fair!

The face lift one looks great, dont think I can go any further than 15k (ideally hoping to pick on up for 13ish) though, started at 10 then moved it up, next thing I know I'll be looking at 20k plus and I have insurance and maintenace to factor in.

He's concerned about running costs on a boxster and you recommend him a 180mph V8 maserati that does 18mpg combined, insurance group 20. Laughing out loud

I used to think Boxster's were a poor man's 911 but they aren't. Pretty cool actually.

Poor man's porsche is a VW but don't tell stanley boy that.

I could afford that 16k porsche right now, but I would feel bad driving back to rented accommodation? Puzzled maybe thats where I am going wrong. the depreciation on that from new is insane. wonder what that exact model would be worth after 1 year of driving (eg stick 12 - 15k on it)

also today on the M4 saw a nice 911 turbo (07 plate) with a bike rack on top with 3 bikes on, doing 100+.

nice to see it is practical as well.

When you sell your car can you claim back the insurance if you pay the whole year up front then sell it after a month?
