Turbo bearings took a massive ---- into the motor and ground the rod bearings and everything else to worthlessness. Sigh. 10k for that car and i only got 50k miles. Of course this happens right after i put $4000 into it.

Are you serious? I may sell it for $4000. Has $2000 of aftermarket parts right now (aftermarket value).


I really need a reliable non-four-inch-exhaust daily driver. Situation is crucial niga.

that's not nearly questionable enough. he has no interest in parts. but he does have interest in parting.

PM me your email.

You have the miata for going fast and being stupid in. I think for the DD you need to go exotic. Pick up a few year old Maserati or Ferrari to drive around. It will definitely stand out more in the MD area then the cars on your list.

If he is dropping this much coin, do you really think he cares about the joy of working on it? I mean if Min wants to work on something he has his miata that will never work right to mess with.

I mean up until yesterday when his forester died, he just wanted to drop 50k on a car randomly when he had 2 other working ones. I know he is not hurting for money. Here is a Maserati that is a bit above what he wants to spend, but is a good bit out of the norm.

NSX?
I think the Caddy fits the bill. If you get the Z06 you and Pusha can form a club.

It's a 2006. Don't know if it's still under warranty. He mainly just drools on it, then waxes it, then repeat. He's never let me drive it!

Hey, it's a Ferrari engine. What could go wrong?

I'd say the IS-F is your best bet. They are nice and the later models suspension feels better, still not as nice as the M3 though. Engine is very nice much more torque than the M3 but not as much top end. Interior nice. Seats ok, not as good as the M3 for comfort in my book. Not too hard to fix fake exhaust tips
C63 AMG sedan motor is awesome, great if you think you are a drifter. interior cheap and seats suck big time for me anyway-seat backs so heavily bolstered that my spine barely touched the seat back. I am not skinny but maybe if you were a beanpole. The c63 coupe is not going to be 50K or less though. Other AMGs like the CLK63 black are cool but again good luck finding one under 50K. Maybe a CL63 or SL55? I'd find a used S65 AMG. Twin turbo V12 600hp. call Renntech etc make 800hp.
Used e60 M5. Not a torque monster but motor sounds awesome at high rpm. plenty fast. Have to find a manual because the SMG really blows.
335i or 335d-my choice plenty of power for any sort of street driving. Easy to make 400/400 with bolt ons. used models cheap.
Corvette-sure it's fast, the question is do you have enough hair pieces, gold chains and hawaiian shirts? Are you eligible for an AARP card yet? Also you could not pay me to sit in that seat for more than 1 hour.
CTS-V. Fast, great drive train. Recaros should be good but I hated them. Still ugly especially the the coupe. The wagon is pretty damn cool just cuz it's a wagon.
How about a Boss 302 mustang. probably just as fast as a GT500 on track. everyone who owns one likes them except for the transmission issue. Challenger SRT8 has 470hp and was nearly as fast as a BMW 1M(if I recall) around VIR in C&D lightning lap this year.
