Exactly. Lots of mod money left over. HPF anyone?

I'd rather grab up an S54 M Coupe than an E46 M3. But that's just me.

Ive driven an e46 m3 before and dont take this the wrong way its a very good car but its just not that exciting to drive.. Maybe it was my experience with it but im sure an HPF one would be insane. My concern with them is not if you can find one for a good price, but how reliable will it be a few years down the road, also to mod its quite pricey compared to the other cars listed.

how about a 2011 GT500

Anyways all the cars you listed are old, played out and close to the end of their life cycle. I wouldn't get any of those

Well a 2011 GT500 would most likely cost upwards of 50 grand. The cars listed cost anywhere from low 20s to mid 30s . So theres obviously a large price gap. True they may be ending their life cycles but does that make them worse? A C5 Z06 would still smash most cars today on the street bone stock. Not to mention it also did the Nurburgring back in the day at a time of 7:56. Which is pretty fkn fast if you ask me.

I think I'd rather wait to see what Roush does. I've always liked their Stangs more than Shelby's.

S2000 CR, the Last and Best variant.

Probably will never be another performance Honda but you probably would not appreciate that considering the cars that you put it against. Those V8 burger mobiles will probably do everything better than the S2000, they just wont have the finesse and the satisfaction when you've truly mastered it.

UAP1- I actually have a 2010 GT now and i think its an awesome car and so is the 2011, but Im looking for something very different i wouldnt mind a gt500 though .

Blue2fire- I wasn't trying to match them all against one another rather just seek opinions on each car. But i have driven a CR and it was totally awesome .So nimble and responsive. I realize it doesn't have the power of the other cars but it is obviously built for different reason. I have no problem with a 4 cylinder

Evo X. Im biased, but I love truely love it. Ive had an evo 8 and 9 before and those are more of a true rally car. But the X still has the Evo performance and some great options as well (nav, sat radio, rockford fosgate sound) etc.
