You might have considered and dismissed it right away, but I just want to mention Mazda RX-8 to you: great handling, RWD, 3000lbs, surprisingly usable back doors/back seats.

Reliability for that...

Cayman S is more expensive than M Coupe, yet sells much better. If Porsche gets this hatchback "right", I think many enthusiasts will prefer it over 135i, which is admittedly kind of porky.

So you finally have a replacement for your E90. Enjoy it! It's a shame that the JCW package is not yet out though. A 2009 JCW Clubman is one of a tiny few choices as my next car.
