Yeah I've got a G35 sedan saved on Autotrader. I do love the sound of that engine/exhaust and I know there's an aftermarket for it so that's a positive.

Just another suggestion, Infinity G35/37 can be had with a stick.

At this point, I'm out if I can't get it with a stick.

I haven't seen anything else pop up lately but I'm also not buying yet anyway. I'm working on getting the Talon ready to sell. I think I'm going to pull out the ECMLink, bigger injectors, and wideband/boost gauge to sell it as a relatively stock car. I should be able to get close to $1000 selling that stuff separately.

I looked at earlier era BMW's about 10 years ago before I bought my Lexus.  Different platform and different engines.  The model range you're looking at (E60?) Is easier to get a wagon with a stick, and a V8.  Still rare.  I can't comment about reliability directly but they did correct some of the stupid issues found on the E39's. 

I might suggest looking at a Lexus GS400/430.  I haven't driven one but they'll last and are easy to maintain provided you find one that isn't beat to shit.  No stick option that I'm aware of, just button shifters.

Deep Purple + The Temptations, "She Said Burn"

How some songs work together so well is amazing. I get that at some point it's basically just mathematics, but these vocals with this music fits so well, it's like it was always meant to be this way.

Those I6s aren't bad.  The problem is, you have no idea how the previous owner treated them, if they let them cool down properly, etc.

If I were going to double my budget, I'd be looking at a G8 GT or a CTS-V. ;)

I may open up the possibility of a coupe - it would add a lot of options but then it goes back to being annoying if I wanted to take even just a kid with me.

I think there are a couple members here (that probably are not even active anymore) that own the TT I6's, but personally I would stay away from them and just go with the old NA I6. Some of the interiors of the era your looking for didn't hold up well due to some environmentally friendly bullshit. I wish I knew more about BMW's to help you out, I like German cars, but more on the VW/Audi side. I wish I could recommend a MK5/MK6 4 door GTI (for the kids yanno, lol), but the 2.0T's in those were utter shit, oh and I guess FWD :lol:

If you want to double your budget you could drive my MK7 home with you, I don't even drive the damn thing anymore, it's just sitting in the garage. $400/month garage ornament honestly... :lol:
