I'm with you on this. I have a deep desire to own a CTS-V wagon
The idea of a Corvette Cadillac wagon is just awesome to me.

But they definitely aren't under $50k CDN, seem to be floating around $55-60k USD. But put aside some cash for fuel, apparently they are horrendous on gas.

i saw one listed on autotrader for $54k in alberta (unfortunately it was automatic, private sale), but the ad only stayed up for a few hours... i'm assuming it sold.

not to tread on the misfortune of others, but i hope that the economic meltdown in alberta will bring out more fire sales on the used car market if you don't mind out of province deals.

That price if brand new and brand new only, I'd go for a M235i. JB4 tune, good coils and tires.

Used I'd go for a Cayman S in manual, PDK is nice but just not as engaging.

E30/36/46/90 m3, type r, nsx, mk1 gti, any air cooled, 944 s2, 968..... There are so many more.
As for new cars? 228i is getting reviews as the best enthusiast BMW out there, even over the m2 in many aspects.

As I already have a regular DD I'd get a 2016 Miata GT and spend the leftover money on coils ($1500), wheels/tires ($2K) and a tune ($600). With a dealer discount, that'd get me in right at $50K. My used choice would a Boxster/Cayman for $40K.

If I didn't have a DD and needed a DD then I'd get a GTI with the Performance Package and call it a day. Used, I'd get a CTS-V or S4.

the problem with BRZ's and Miatas are that you actually have to be seen driving them

lolol.... I think BMW drivers and mature GTR owners have it worse when it comes to stereotypes.....

back on topic, since I see alot of people are starting to get into used euros (used S4), back in the highschool days, right after the S2k, the car to get was the E39 M5, E46 M3 manual coupe, that manual E60 M5 (high revving V10 with horseshit gas mileage - YES PLEASE) .... I guess nowadays E90/92 M3 falls under 50K too. Yes, I am a BMW fanboy lol....

The trouble is finding a manual version with good records at the right price in the right color/options that you want it?

lol.... Thank you for starting this thread... always loved to dream about what happens when a sudden dump of cash comes out of no where lolol

I don't know about you guys, but when I think about a drivers car, i'm basically thinking how close can I get to a go kart?

With that, it means any sports car from the year 2000 and earlier. Direct steering, mechanical linkage to the throttle. Small light and nimble.... But that's just me.

I said any sports car under the year 2000... Doesn't mean there can't be newer ones too.. Lotus, Ariel, S2000... the list goes on.

It's just that most vehicles lost these attributes post 2000 unless they are driver oriented cars like yours.

Feels the most light and nimble whereas the 235i and M2 feel overpowered and not true to the heritage of the original small M's.

The BMW 228i Is The Best Enthusiast Bimmer You Can Buy

The feeling is not universal though - some reviews say it's ain't so great, some love it (R&T had it beating a M2, 1M, and a 235i in a recent review)
