The Price is Right!

Going through the new car buying experience, I've researched a lot and have noticed all the the cars I see on the road to a lot more exacting degree than ever before. So, for fun (if you can call it that), I've created a list of cars that I would buy in a certain price range. The price range listed below is the price I believe I could negotiate for on the trim and option configuration I would be getting (including all the mandatory charges on the vehicle like delivery/destination and current incentives available, but NOT including taxes or fees).

Please feel free to add your own list to this thread. I found this to be a rewarding exercise to undertand myself and my value system better. So, please refrain from critiquing (such as, "why would you get car A instead of car B", or "the vehicles you put down make no sense"). Obviously, we are all in different stages of our lives, have different needs and responsibilities, different preferences and prejudices, etc.... so everyone's list will be unique. So here is mine:

[Price Range]: [Vehicle(s)]
10k-16k: Toyota Corolla S / Mazda 3 Sport
16k-20k: Honda Accord LX / Toyota Camry SE
20k-25k: Toyota Prius / Nissan Titan
25k-30k: Toyota 4Runner Sport
30k-35k: BMW 325i (ZSP, Step, Xenon, Assist, Paint, +1000 invoice, US delivery)
35k-40k: Chevrolet Corvette / Acura MDX (I would imagine a lot of people on this board putting the 330i here)
40k-45K: Infiniti M35 Sport
45k-50K: Land Rover LR3 SE
Stopped here

Notes: Honorable mention go to the Acura TL in the 30k-35k class, and the Yukon Denali LSE/Chevy Tahoe LS in the 25k-30k class (due to GM Employee Discount for Everyone incentive). Did you know that the Corvette is the ONLY vehicle not included in the GM thing? Doesn't surprise me though, considering how awesome and venerable the Corvette is. By far the hardest category for me to fill was the 20k-25k bracket. Nothing really grabbed me. So it was all over the map depending on if I went for utility (full size pickup truck) or uniqueness (Prius). If I could bring back a car, I would probably put the last generation Pontiac Firebird here. Man, I loved how that car looked. Also, if the 2006 Civic was out, it would probably win in my 10k-15k category. Same goes for the 2007 Toyota full size truck to come out, that would probably take first in my 20k-25k category.

Great thread. All the hard work, detail, and even thread editing was definitely worth it.
