I missed the fact that you have an M coupe... so no need for a 350Z.

What about an Lexus IS300 or an old twin-turbo (B5 platform) S4... an avant is even better.

Some examples would be an e46 m3 or an evo, both of which I don't want though lol.

Any ideas.

why does it take 500 hp to entertain you again? and if you're going to be that picky, then you've already weeded out the semi reliable cars that can actually put down that power

A little older than you want probably, but how about an '03 RS6? If you wanted something newer maybe a c55 AMG?

Both of these are tunable, but might be more expensive than what you had in mind.

Are you an idiot? I like the M coupe more which is why I'm not driving it, but its depreciating badly anyway, which is the reason for the thread. You are thick.

Uh you said to get a new skyline or vette when the whole purpose is to have a car I can leave sit without taking it in the ass on depreciation. That makes you either unintelligent or ignorant, you choose which word you'd like. Also, not all vehicles depreciate and older ones depreciate a hell of a lot slower then new ones.

He can put every bolt on on the M3 and will probably get maybe 30hp if he is lucky. the engine is pretty much maxed out NA, the only way to make power would be to FI it and that ain't cheap.

Yea, when I said your kind of an idiot I was just being nice.

Don't care about putting money into the car, just so long as it's still worth a good % of what I buy it for in a few years. It's costing me 7-10k a year (plus a good bit in insurance as well) not to drive a car that I don't like much. If I got an e36 I think it might actually be worth more whenever I decide to sell it, especially if it's a fixerup.

why are you bashing on people who are tying to help you?
why are you even asking if w/e on the market isn't "perfect" enough for you
even if we name ALL the cars in the world, you wouldn't be able to pick one
