I'd say NSX, but with a manual transmission.

Also, if you have $30,000 to spend you can swing a seriously fast 2010ish Z06 Corvette. Or a Toyota Supra turbo if you are into those.

BTW, if you have a 135i, you can build a faster car for A LOT less $$$$. ECU reflash, exhaust, and a couple of other mods would give you about a 100hp bump. The...

Probably figured out they would make you a lifetime customer, and that they'd make more $$$ off of the people you referred to them rather than screwing you over on one deal.

One thing I do miss about my old Cadillac was the horn. It used 4 separate "horns" at different notes to produce the sound, sounded like a tugboat, which was perfectly logical considering what a...

Honestly I think Suburu is afraid a turbo BRZ will eat into the sales of the WRX and WRX Sti models, cars no doubt with higher profit margins.

Kind of sad that the world's #1 automaker doesn't sell a single damn sports car, and is completely unwilling to build one themselves despite the pent up demand.
