I'd have to throw the FRS/BRZ twins out there as a contender, the only difference being $25k to start. 200hp, 2700lbs, RWD, road hugging monsters. They don't have Recaro's, but the stock seats are...

Do not like the front end on the new models at all. The way the hood line runs behind the BMW roundel bugs the crap out of me. It feels like it totally ruins the lines of the front end. That being...

I would and I almost did.

Before buying my Subaru BRZ as a second car, I was very close to pulling the trigger on a 2012 135i M-Sport. The only reason I didn't, is because the BRZ offered the same...

If I were driving a 330i (ZHP or not) I'd probably be with you on that, but I drive a boring ol' 325i 5spd, so yeah. I picked up the BRZ, and I'm actually thinking about getting rid of my E46,...

Personally, after having driven my BRZ for almost 6 months, I really don't think it needs any more power in terms of HP. I wouldn't mind a little more torque (something closer to 200hp/175-200lbft...

That's pretty much exactly it. I almost got myself a C5 Corvette Z06 for less overall money, instead of the BRZ, but I felt like I wouldn't really be able to push the Z06 to the limit without getting...

It's an absolute blast! 200hp, 2700lbs, RWD, 6 speed manual. It's pretty much the perfect recipe for fun.

That part is definitely a load of BS. With proper maintenance, you can push well past the 250k mark. My 2002 is sitting at 142k and running like a champ. As others have said, if the deck is warped,...

Congrats! I just had an E90 loaner for a few days (2011 328i Sedan, fully loaded) and it was a blast to drive! Love my E46, but the E90 was a nice change of pace for a few days.
