Don't like the 1M? Seems kinda perfect for what you want from your description.

I was there to drop my wifes car off for warranty covered service. I was looking around the lot just to browse, and I saw that black one, and they have a second one there too, but I think it's auto. That might even be in your price range. For what it is, I think it's a good deal. You could get them to move on the price I'm sure. That is the same dealer I bought my car at in '07. They wanted $7495 for my car "internet sale price". I offered them $6,000 cash, and they whined a little, so I acted like I was gonna walk. Then, magic..."Wait...we really need to move our used inventory...we'll do it." I bet if you tell them $22,000 even, they'll work with ya.

How about an E46 M3 Competition Package? Boss Brostang? (as has been suggested) Shelby Brostang? New 300C SRT-8? Panoz Esperante?
I think you should go for a test drive.

I would suggest a 2011+ Mustang GT. It is fast and has warranty bra. I have a Boss 302, but I dont want your gayness on my new forum, they suck anyways.

0-60 times seem real slow in that video, but yeah, it seems as if you might want a warranty Min.

Also a 7500 RPM redline seems pretty baus.

Or start with the new ZL1 and have 580 hp out of the box. Its also right around your price point, new, with a warranty. Even being a tank, they make me drool.... And kill kittens...

Somebody mentioned 300c srt8. I saw a guy show up at the drag strip with one of those...he ran a 13.2 on his first pass. I asked him what was done, he said..."it's a hemi, stock, I have an aftermarket airbox and a power programmer." I was amazed.

Assuming this isn't just a total troll thread, Fae should consider leasing something - after doing some homework on money factors and residuals. Depending on the model, the specifics of the deal, maintenance programs and warranty, he could theoretically always drive something under warranty.

Many of the luxury manufacturers will use slightly inflated residuals and today's low rate environment means money factors can be very favorable. Something like that S5 wouldn't be a problem if you pick it up with 10 miles and turn it in with 36k. We have had a few low mileage Audis and always enjoyed them.

This is, of course, predicated on the idea that he will use this as a "nice car" and leave the sawzall and 5-lb sledge for the Miata.

OP: I need a safe and reliable daily driver.

OP: I have a broken modded Forester and Miata that is undriveable in half of its gears.

OP: it has to have 500 hp with bolt ons.

You know, the lease option is actually quite interesting for these more expensive cars. Assuming $360/month for a 36 month lease and $4000 down, that comes to $17K over three years. Let's assume I keep leasing for a period of nine years. That means in nine years, I will have spent $50K on the lease. Alternately, I could have spent $50K in one year on the car, owned it, paid for maintenance, and be out of warranty by year three. Let's assume that in nine years, I put 100K miles on it. That means by year nine, I will have to do some major maintainence work. Let's say $8K of maintenance total by that time. So by year nine, I will have put $58K into the car. And will probably want to sell it because it will be getting old and unreliable. So I sell it for $15K. That means my total expense for the car was $43K. By the math, this means the lease is more expensive. BUT I can keep all that cash in the bank or use it to buy gluten free vegan quesadillas etc. Also with leasing, I don't have to worry about massive depreciation if I want to sell the car. Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm
