I suggest he test drive a few cars and see which one fits him best...

370Z
G35
Evo/STi
335/328
TL... 305hp AWD... plus I think the thing actually looks pretty nice

All good cars... just depends on which one he likes most...

Go for Audi A4 or Audi A5.. I like the new Acura TSX too, I think they're coming up with a V6 in 2010, plus it's pretty fun to drive IMO, much better than TL.. Don't get IS350, it's a girl's car.. If you're gonna spend above $40K, then go for German engineering. You want a piece of art when you're paying that much amount and not some overpriced beater.. !

If I was 18 and my mom hated me, she would've gotten me a 135i - and I'd find the telephone pole.

The new Acura TL is probably the best deal. Looks very agressive and it's the most powerful TL ever built. Can't get no better then that within that price range. Better yet, tell your uncle that I just found a twin turbo Acura NSX. Check this out!
