Beefbone 5pts The options listed at the end of the article were a wonderful reminder to me of why I'm simply not a prospective Porsche buyer. Just a couple: Painted car key- $335 5-mm wheel spacers- $500 What kind of tool pays $335 extra for a key that's been painted? Or who pays $500 for 4 round shims that are less than 1/4 inch thick? When I conjure a typical Porsche owner, the image it evokes is a guy in plaid golf slacks and tasseled loafers... a real "sport" who isn't even aware of all the people snickering behind him as he's ripped off... right and left. Sure, Porsche makes very good cars. But brush away the pixie dust, and there are other, perhaps better choices for most of us, that give the same or better level of performance @ far better value, without making us look foolish.
