    before this, i was going to settle with a 335i but no BMW dealership would go under $48,000 after taxes, way too much money for me since i don't make too much money.... so i decided to go with the S or the Z...

    i can get the S2000 for $32k otd which is a steal but the downside is it only has 237 hp but i love how it looks, and i can get the enthusiast model Z for $29,000 OTD, which is a very good price and it comes with 306 hp but i prefer the s2000 looks....

    The Z is a heavy pig, but I like it soo much more than the S2K.

    Above you
    I have an '04 s2k. Chose it over the 350z back then cuz the 350z looks like a toad. Top down with the s2k on a warm night > *. Although the s2k is seriously underpowered in today's market.

    Agreed on the power relative to what's available. Nothing beats top down motoring though. :) Besides, when I want to feel "fast", I drive my E36M. :big grin:

    Oh, and I think I'd have to wear ear plugs if I DD a 350 or G35.

    the strung 4 banger on the S isn't very muffled either:hsugh:
     
  20. The S2000 is in desperate need of an update and the 350 has always sucked. Best of luck in your choice.

    To each their own, but I don't hit 8k every day in the S2000 so I don't have to listen to it. Everytime a FM platform'd car takes off from a light, you've got to hear the drone.

    the G37 is pure sex!... I was at the Edmond, Ok BMW dealership the other day and i was looking at a 330i Coupe... It might have been a 28.... anyways I swore he said he could get me in a turbo for 45... Isn't that the only turbo? I didn't really ask bc it was a lil more than I am going to spend...


    PS the IS350 is a nice car... I was really impressed

    Sold it a while ago. The one in the av is the first one I had (owned two black '93Ts) and I just never felt like changing my av.
