Don't know about England but in Canada 1999 and up for sedans are E46. E46 coupes came out in 2000.

Man thats a good looking car bro! So may I ask: How do you like those replicas? I see and hear of them all the time. My guy owns a wheel shop and tells me he can set me on those as well as a pair of SO3's for a great buy. I am a little reluctant, figure if I have an M3 I should be able to sport decent wheels, cause I assumed they were cheap knock-offs. Yours look sweet from a distant on a 1-10 what would you give em? CYA! and thanks in advance.

Hey pal thanks for the compliment. I love these rims. I have the lip high polished as well. I had the M5 replica last year and they where nice but these ones I like way more. On a scale of 1-10 I give then a 11 !!!! Actullay I have them for sale.

I've raced a boxter (non S) with my 328 and I didn't have much of a problem holding on to it, and eventually passing it.

If you are talking about stock, a boxter is faster on highway than a 330ci manual, and that's based on the result we tried twice. I'm not sure about the pick up, but on highway, boxter is faster.....weird.

HP vs. drag. The Boxster has comparatively no frontal area.
