STi is now a fail because of the hatchback only chassis and the quad exhausts (1 tip per cylinder? LOL).

EVOX is nice, but it's definitely lost it's touch when compared to the EVO9. The EVO9 is far more fun to drive.

135i would be the choice I would pick if I have to stick with something German.

S2000 is outdated.

G37 is pointless because I would never torture someone with the backseat. The trunk is retarded small. Might as well go for the 370z.

MCS is FWD and the fun is just ruined when you are used to a high performance RWD.

Z4M, there is a reason why this car is still untitled for 2007s. It's engine is too old and it is out performed easily by cars much cheaper. It's body style is also getting replaced this year.

GTi is not a choice if the 135i is within reach.
Correction. They were forced to make it into a hatchback in order to be competitive with Ford and Citreon in WRC again.

But... they've pulled out of WRC this year.

Mantis, you already have 4 cars ( unless you sold them)

sell the M3 and when the economy recovers then get the new M3
