Garage List
dont get an slk 350 cuz the performance stinks. get a fairly loaded 335i coupe and mod it out with forged wheels, procede, aero front, and whatever else u want and u will have a fun and unique car.

GT-R. I've read they're going to start at under 60,000, have 480 HP, awd and do the ring in 7:3X. Apparently, they've already got the 911 turbo beat by a few seconds and now they're going for the 7:28 or 7:32 of the CGT. This is MORE THAN 1/2 a MINUTE FASTER THAN THE NEW M3, M5, even the performance/value king C6Z06 isn't even close!

If that isn't fast enough, I'm sure you can get Vishnu's Procede or some other turbo tuner in the future. It'll probably be mod friendly too - I've read stock boost is only 10 psi or so. BTW, 0-60 times are supposedly 3.9 seconds (awd launches are always gonna be awesome).

Now, the best part for me... I live in Chicago and will drive it everyday to and from work rain or shine. I can always get winter tires and drive it in the snow with the AWD!!! If there is too much snow, then I'll take my wife's RX400h.

Can't wait till I test drive one....

all wheel is the best option for me like 328xi
but I dont have much options for all wheel..
anyway thanks!
Out of this list, I'd definitely get the SLK350, but I am in California and you're in Wisconsin. In your meteorologically challenged situation, I'd get the TT 3.2 quattro because it got AWD. The Cayman would be good in states with less snow, but unfortunately, it has "couldn't afford a 911" written all over it.
