Depends on the price range.

Probably a Corvette as far as sports car (overall).

i think
1. 370z corvette new, c6 zo6 cayman s e46 m3 used
2. s4 new e90 m3 used
3. f-150 raptor new used x5
4. camaro ss or 335i new, e92 m3 used

thats what i think the best bang for buck is.

those are all way too expensive for what they do

1. 370Z, used cayman S, used C6 Z06, used G35, used S2000, e46 M3
2. C350, Hyundia Genesis, used 335i, S4, Corrola, Malibu
3. F-150, Tundra, pretty much any jeep (they run forever)
4. Camaro SS (if you can get one without the ridiculous mark-up), 135i, used e92 335i, Cobalt SS

the cars you named were good cars, not good values

For example, yes the Raptor is badass, but it really doesnt do that much more than a regular f-150, which is 10k less. Same for the M3 to 335i. If your looking to either track, or take over a small country, they might be considered values, but to 95% of the population thats just not the case.

thats why i said used e92 m3

the only thing you changed was the raptor to reg. f150 which i agree and to a used 335i. oh and a corvette. the corvette is a bargain for what it has for 45k

but a used Z06 can is pretty much a 50k super car.

i dont think you could ever consider the E9x M3 a value its not the best at anything it does and its still too expensive. (btw, im not bashing. An e92 m3 is my current dream car lol, im just saying that there are better choices out there)

yeah i know lol.

but i did have a used c6 z06 in the list lol.
i think the a used e90 m3 is a bargain because i can't think of something that has the feel, performance, and comfort at the same time. no other sedan offers that.

Sports: Miata; used Elise; used Z06; used e46 M3
Sedan: used 335i; G8; CTS-V; WRX; Genesis; used 5 or 7 series
Truck: F-150; Tacoma; Wrangler; used 4.0 Cherokee RAV-4 V6
Coupe: (not considering sports cars above- thinking more GT) 135i, Genesis

One car to do all the above (except coupe): 335 wagon- sadly unavailable here. I would say X6 because it can do all the above too, but too much money.

Overpriced?? no way..... its relatively affordable compared to a porsche 911 or even a ferarri. I believe top gear tested it on their track and it was faster than a 911.

If so....

1. 370z - No contest

2. CTS-V - No Contest

3. Chevy Silverado (19k) - Could go with the Tundra here.... Both the F150 and Dodge1500 will set you back mid 20's to start

4. Coupe? what makes a good coupe? I'd say Accord/Genesis Coupe. Unless you want a luxury coupe = 128i
the 128i gets a mention lol SWEET!
