I hang out with them all the time now days. You give them a piece of candy (something like a lollipop) and they are pretty good for at least half an hour.

I wish I could say the same for my wife.

Not to mention that the Cayman S is also 600 lbs. lighter than the 335i.

Do you get HBO? I'd hate to miss an episode of True Blood while I'm in the doghouse.

Ok well, he test drove the car on Saturday. He says it feels cramped and he feels claustrophobic. Anyone else have any suggestions for what else he can look for that's sporty? Keep in mind, he's 54 years old and has back problems.

maybe describe what his intended use are, then it is easier for us to help you.
- if he is into 2 seater with light/nimble handling, cayman s is a very good choice. but i feel it is a waste if he doesn't track his car.
- if he want a more comfy car with some sportyness for street use, then e93 m3. nothing beat a hard top vert in daily driving experience especially that v8 sound. it has enough room for 4, fit all his golf bags and adult toys, and it has presence.
- Or a based panamera if he have the bucks for it. I think it suites your dad age very well.
- if he like none above, then S5. it is safe, very comfy, and look very business like. a black one would do the trick IMO. don't get the s5 vert though cause I think the soft top ruined the whole look of the car.

one thing I noticed is insurance for the cayman s is way more than the m3 for some reason, atleast in my area. I did a quote for both and the cayman s was atleast 70 bucks more than the m3 a month. That's more than a c6 z06 and almost the same as insurance for a gt3. I don't quite get that.

Hmm, The S5 seems like a good idea. Thanks! I'll take him to Audi this weekend!
