It depends on your price range, but if you get a 350z turbo those are quite nice. Also, you may want to look in to purchasing a z06.

Do what I plan on doing. My lease is up in a couple of months.

I am going to get a RX300 and camo paint it. Drive that until I can order a Lemans blue e92 335 with DCT. Once my new 335 arrives I will crash the rx300 into a large intersections light pole, leave it running with the door open and run away from the scene wearing a chicken suit.

Well yes 30k is about my price range, as far as keeping my car i really don't want too because im just dieing for something completely different. The mustang was a mid cycle face lift which i don't think most people understand. As far as the looks of the car go i think it was a great move by ford. Everyone is getting old with the retro looks( charger, challenger, camaro). Ford did a smart thing by refreshing the car. Every piece of sheet metal has been changed besides the roof. Not gonna lie i wish it was the 5.0 400 hp motor but the 4.6 isn't anything to cry about. Its a super tunable motor with tons of aftermarket parts already out for it. With just a tune ,CAI, 4.10 gears, and exhaust. I've seen people run low low 12s . Sorry for bickering but i do like the new mustang If you've seen motor trends comparison shot of the 2005 vs 2010 mustang gt its a lot nicer.

i say stay away from the Subarus and Evo's... after coming from a 3 series you'll just be disappointed with them (maybe not performance wise but styling and features... they both suck IMO). Mustangs are nice, or I should say CAN be nice with the right colors/options but I just think they are too "ordinary" for my taste... everyone has them. How about a CPO'd IS 350 or maybe even a CPO'd TL Type-S? With the way the economy is right now you could probably get either one only a year or two old with no miles for about $30k. Maybe even an Audi A4 or TT if you don't mind having a 2 seater... the new TT's looks pretty nice, my neighbor back home just got one and its sick.

^ Im afraid that id be sacrificing almost everything for performance if i was to get an evo or sti so yea those were my CONS on the two. No doubt they could be stupid fast . Tl type s i didn't think of but i really like as well.i also am at a point in my life where i wish i could just not give a shit about interior , quality. Evo and sti just seem to be so much dam fun though.

If the interior is much better than the old one, definitely get the new Mustang.

also the nice thing about the TL's are that they come FULLY FUCKING LOADED (either Navi or non Navi is your only choice). So no matter which one you find... you know its gonna be fully equipped with all the toys and one HELL of a sound system as well.

They're nice rides... not as fast as a 335 or sti or evo but they have some smooth giddyup and look really nice. they are also probably some of the best handling cars other than BMW's that exist. Acura definitely tired to follow in BMW's footsteps in that regard... my old TSX (even though very underpowered) could keep up with the best of the 335's and STi's in the twisties any day of the week.

Evo X. Plenty of tuning potential, good looking and not too boy-racer like the STi.

^lol . Well this thread has actually helped me alot . Ive ruled out the Sti now its pretty much down to mustang gt or evo x. Ive seen numerous evos already and none really impressed me escpecally the fit and finish inside and out so i think when Judgement Day comes the mustang is going to win my heart. IS350's are really nice when done right.. But I drove one a while back and it was quick quicker then i thought it would be but performance wise id keep my 335i over is350.
