don't agree about the off roading at all. Its about driving position, comfort with road holding and sportiness. In our case we needed a 4 seater and more load space than a Boxster could give us. Yes there are loads of conventional vehicles (BMWs/Audi's/Volvo/Jags that fit the bill.
it had to fit in my garage
Now if you want a specific driving position, that limits the field significantly. If you then want the best in class......Macan it was (it was never going to be a Q5 not still enough, BMWs are horrible, It came close to being an F-Pace, but they appear to have problems and the garage would have been a tight squeeze.
As for as we were concerned - purely a carefully thought out head decision......strangely my heart was telling me that this was the wrong thing to do and that I should be getting another Boxster.....
