I once heard that you should not buy a porsche boxster unless you have 5000$ a year to repair. I have used 20.000$ in 2,5 year. My gearbox had problems, and was repaired. changed clutch and flywheel too. Finally a cylinder head cracked. I've been unlucky I guess but either way I would have reached around 10.000$ in the time ive had it on normal change of parts and service.

Boxster is said to be really cheap in maintenance...more like a normal car !! I guess Kenneth has been really unlucky...
