    Sigh...new problem...but a good kind I guess...

    Alright guys, I just got some new news: my parents want to commandeer my car to ship to Korea so they can drive it there (in stock form :\). But they've given me option of getting a different car within a certain price range...that price range is wide so I have great options but just don't know much about the newer cars. So the price range is max about 75k...the cheaper the better and I don't mind used or new. The couple I've looked at are used 2009+ M3/M5, new CTS-V sedan or coupe, new IS-F, used (would love used but...) C63 AMG, or maybe an Audi...

    Here's the catch...if I get a newer car, I wouldn't be able to mod it as much as I've modded by 5er...most of the upgrades for the cars listed are pretty expensive and I could get them eventually but it wouldn't be like my 5er...plus I enjoy my 5er, but really wouldn't mind an upgrade (I generally like the car quite a bit, but a number of small things bother me...like the traffic on the GPS, and the iDrive system and how it's hard to find parts for the car...). LMK what you guys think, and if you have owned any number of these cars, lmk how you felt about them...as always thanks!

    CTS-V sedan is my pick. You can pick one up and get some great mods for 75K

    Plenty of cars to choose from there. If you can't mod, get something powerful stock or that is cheap to mod later. CTS-V is a good choice.

    CTS-V Hands down, best car for the money.

    Get a used GT-R, z06 or C63 AMG. You can also buy an M3, but be prepared to spend lots of $$$$ to make it as fast as the cars I mentioned. Those with just a tune are monsters.

    Exactly what I was thinking. Used GTR...or a Z06. Anything german and you will pay up the ass for mods.

    It's still a huge toss-up...I went and drove a CTS-V coupe today but the salesman was kind old and almost $#@! himself when I floored it for a second to get infront of a car on the on ramp...even though he was very proud of the fact that it was the world's fastest production car...in the test drive I had...the V didn't feel like it was anything special. Ideally I would really like to find a good C63 and in a few years (hopefully the price drops) get the weistec sc kit put on...hahaha...I doubt it though, don't have 15k to drop on that. I really wouldn't mind a used GT-R but I heard that they are GREAT engines to drive...but the car is still a Nissan...who knows though I'd have to drive one...those are hard to find haha...if you guys know of any in the NC area, lmk...I'll keep people informed as the list gets narrowed down.

    PS: no one has anything to say about the IS-F? I haven't been able to find one to test drive but I've heard good things about it, even thought the tuning scene is practically non-existant...

    The IS-F is the worst car out of your choices IMO.

    Hmm true..but the issue is that my dad would be paying for the majority of the car, and he's the kind of guy that has to see the car for himself...I don't think he'd be willing to do so and I doubt he'd be willing to give me the cash to do that either...I found a pretty nice GT-R here actually...and one other question, although I'm going to go drive it tomorrow, how are the seats...I LOVE my 5er seats, I feel like I fit perfectly in them, I also like the AMG seats in the C63...anyone know how the GT-R seats compare?

    Nissan 2010 GT-R

    LMK what you guys think and how low I can take that price...carfax seems clean and decently well taken care of...

    Oh and something else, I will keep this car for a while and I want it to be comfortable...the reviews I'm reading about the GT-R is that it's a great track car but not that comfortable and loud...I have no idea how that compares to my car now because it's a little loud...but I guess I'll just know more when I drive it today.
