Curious car shopping

So here the situation, what car would you purchase?
Two criteria:

1: CANNOT be a BMW
2: Must be in the same price range (purchase price) as your current BMW.

Thanks for looking!

I already made that purchase....and its actually cheaper and more fun S2000

Cayman S was a bit out of my price range this time, but its always on top of my list.

-MY '12 S5 3.0 S/C
-Boss 302 or fully loaded 5.0
-Used C63
-Golf R

The JDM scene doesn't have anything nearly as interesting as the above mentioned cars imo. The IS range is meh, the G37s have never interested me enough, and the 370Z was a flash on my radar until I test drove one and found that the only stand out thing about it was its syncro rev match ability.

Am I the only one that thinks the IPL's looks are hard to stomach? The thing has shovels up front and a comically bad rear.

thats a sure nice car, would love to get one of those.

ps. I bet they will find a way to fuck this car up in US-spec. I already heard that sport seats are not gonna make it to USA.....and suspension is gonna be softer.
