Wouldn't really call the RX fun to drive, it's a floaty SUV. Same goes for the MDX.

The TL is a nice ride, but the new design really sucks. Guess if he's looking for a previous-generation one that won't matter though. Wasn't a fan of the buzzy 4-banger in the previous generation TSX either, though this has been rectified in the new one from what I hear. Not a fan of the old G35s either - they weren't great. G37 is a pretty big improvement.

How about a new Civic Si? Plenty of fun for the buck. Used TL Type-S? Perhaps a slightly used Lancer Ralliart. GTI is a good choice too, as is a used Mazdaspeed3 or 3 series wagon. Volvos don't do anything for me personally. He needs to figure out what direction he wants to go if he's considering a GTI and an RX. They're complete opposites.
