yes maintenance on the boxster is not cheap. be prepared for deep pockets or know someone that is willing to work on it for you. i believe the oil filter is up on top...at least the 2010 model is. many things do require an engine drop.
i think the boxster is a far better drive than the z4...it just feels more alive or visceral...but there is that pesky cost to maintain.
there is the TT...it's very different.
find out cost to maintain the boxster...i'd go with that one instead of the z4 unless you can get the MZ4 but probably not in the price range you are looking for.

I don't want a 3 series or something that is not truely a roadster style of car.
