Hi Rob , the first couple I drove didnt feel special , this one has been well looked after just had a major service , 12 months mot & 6 months warranty .
I had to give the Z4 back as the BMW dealer had lied & said it had been serviced by them ( was done by Halfords they had reset everything ) my local dealer pulled it up that it wasnt a BMW service they couldnt argue , the diff was needing replaced and because I hadnt had the car long enough they wouldnt honour the warranty . dealer said that I had broken the diff driving 65 miles home .
The Porsche drives great plenty of power , steering feel amazing I suppose it is how they are treat as t how they drive .
regards
Steven

Sorry, I'm a bit confused. The diff was broken, so the dealer took the car back and gave you your money back? If so, good result.
But you also said the dealer claimed you hadn't had the car long enough (for what?), and that they wouldn't honour the warranty (why not?).
Cheers.
Boxster is a lovely colour.
