    Porsche or Viper. Corvette and BMW are too commonplace, IMO. I know the M5 is not common, but too many BMWs look all alike.

    If I get a sedan, like the M5, I will sell my Audi A4 and keep the Audi TT. But if I get another two seater, I'll keep all 3 cars.

    BMWs are commonplace for sure, but Corvettes are few and far between here.

    really? the Z06 isn't too common around here, but I see those more often than a 911, and I definitely see them more often than Vipers. And the regular C5? On a nice summer day, they're every few blocks. It's a great car, but it's soo common.

    Z06 with the higher of the two option packages comes out to $71k or so..... and all the dealerships are demanding premiums.

    Here's what I would do. Keep the A4 for a daily, sell the TT, buy a Viper, and s/c the Viper with the TT money.

    That's all on paper, though. After driving all 4 cars, you'll know exactly what to do.

    And I'd call BS on this if you didn't live where you live. My friend's aunt lives there. 5000 square feet for 4 mil?

    I'm worried about poor build quality. I've been browing the Corvette Forums a lot, and it is LOADED with posts about really troubling build issues. Rattling roofs, draining batteries, poor body panel fitment, etc. The performance, price, and looks of the car are hot though. I would get a 2006 C6 with the 3LT package, Z51 package, manual tranny, nav system, and competition wheels.

    Sweet car, but I am concerned that the body style looks too dated and the platform/technology are getting old.
