    ^ I agree a c63 with a tune and filters/ Do it yourself airbox mod is a beast ! Im a bit biased and my car is further modded now but i would have been happy with the car with just a tune and filters .. Big displacement gives it good torque close to a fbo 335 but after 5K rpm when the n54 starts falling on its face the m156 rips all the way to its 7300 rpm redline and never drops horsepower check the dynos out (tuned because un tuned benz closes the throttle bodies up top so its not faster than more expensive heavier amg's) It a uptop highway monster and unlike the N/A m3 still gives a fat smack of low/mid torque with its top end pull. Handling is pretty good as well the coupe i have has the new 2012 suspension setup which is better than pre 12's but i have driven a pre 12 and its still on point. Interior is pretty good and not to sound cliché but at the end of the day its a mercedes and will give you that "luxury" feeling back that your missing. might be worth the extra 4-5 K just something to think about

    Thats why i would stick with the M113k. The N/A M113 is already in there..the new Kompressor motor would be a drop in breeze. Some wiring changes perhaps and some cooling additions and you have a 210 supercharged..

    Lotus Elise? You can grab them for under 30k pretty easily, however if your tall/ not agile it might be a problem for you

    I've driven my buddy's 2012 5.0 6MT wtih track pack and my biggest complaint was the OEM clutch. It's absolutely horrible. It engages about 2" from the floor. Maybe it's something you can get used to. Not sure. I'me finding some pretty awesome deals on 5.0 though. CPO 2010 GT Premium with NAV for <$25,000. or 2013 GT 5.0 with 4,000 miles for $28,000.

    Hmmmm...... [

    I'd prob take the vette if I didn't need a back seat though. Just cause it's a Z06 LOL

    QUOTE=Eric335;456922]Funny you mention that. One of my life-long best friends drives a 5.0 w/ track pack and she said she would let me drive it.

    Im going to be calling the insurance company within the next day or two to get a quote on:

    2011-2013 Mustang GT 5.0
    2009+ Nissan 370z
    2003-2004 C5 Z06
    2008+ C6 LS3

    Hopefully the C5Z wont be too horrible compared to the 335i.... I mean, being under 25 y/o and being male, im already paying top dollar. If i could sell the car for mid 20's and then buy a C5Z and pocket 5-7k, id be thrilled. Would afford me a nice coilover kit and some exhaust Click here to enlarge[/QUOTE]

    Pretty sure I've narrowed it down to picking up an e90 335i when I sell the EVO or just buying a beater and ordering the next gen 2015 mustang next spring. Independent rear suspension, Direct Injection and a rumored 500HP GT sounds pretty enticing. This way I can order it with Brembos, Recaros, Track Pack and Nav.

    Here's one for $32,999. IDK, for that much money I almost rather wait and grab a 50th anniversary 2015. Although, they may not make the Boss 302 anymore so it might get harder to grab one, especially with limited production to 4,000 per year. IDK..... This is the only one around that price though. The rest are all +$36,000

    Why not get a used Corvette?

    Maybe a T-top. Fast, handles good, looks good, reliable, cheap and easy to maintain. Tough to beat.
