Which second hand roadster should I buy?

I want to buy a second hand roadster and have narrowed down my choice to the following two cars:

1) 2002 Porsche Boxster S

2) 2003 BMW Z4

What’s your opinion on these cars?

The Boxster is a sports car and by far the better drive. The Z4 is a two seater roadster, but is not a sports car. However, any serious problem with the Boxster could cost you £10,000+. Serious problems are far less likely with the Z4, and it still looks good.
