    ...if you can only spend $15000. So if you currently had $15000 to spend on a car what would you go with?

    $15'000, thats about £8'000.

    Which is enough to buy my Polo GTi and a decent set of coliovers. So I'd be sticking with what I've got :big grin:

    Guess that aint much help to ya though, sorry.

    best car for that price is a low mileage e36 m3.. i would maybe a find a very low mileage '95 or a higher mileage '97. brilliant all-around car that will put to shame a lot of today's so-called "sports" cars.

    e30 m3, e34 m5, old school porsche 911, porsche 944, bmw 2002, e21 320i, mercedes 190e, jetta, gti, corrado, scirocco...

    it all depends on what kind of ar you want, and how much work and money you are willing to put into it.

    any of those car i just listed can be fast with some work.

    ^^^ :rofl: I hope you're not serious.

    The thread creator asked for "dream car", not winter beater / daily driver.

    E36 m3.
    Though I would be willing to settle for a 328i/5 as well. You can get a 328i with decent mileage for around 8k-10k in PERFECT condition.

    since everything you buy will be out of warrany, might as well go with the e36 M3.

    I'd just pimp out what I have now, and dump $15k in to putting a 1.8T motor in it, plus repainting the whole thing.. That's $15k easily spent.
