Currently have a 2008 bmw 335xi. While it is probably just as fast as a cayman and the handling is quite good, it does just not have the wow factor, no flash to it, looks like every other car on the road. I like a car that draws some attention to it or people like to look at. Does your cayman s draw any attention. Trying to decide between a cayman s used or a jaguar xkr convertible. Two very different cars but the Jag has the pizazz factor and power but not the handling. Also had a mercedes ssl500 which i got rid of after a year, hated the handling. Also up here in NY, the roads suck and even in the bmw the suspension can be somewhat harsh. Also drove an 2008 M3 and man is it a rocket ship with amazing handling.
