Well, Ill list his pritorities:
1. The car must be just a blast to drive.
2. Rare/Unique
3. Performance... doesnt necessarily mean that it runs low 14's stock...if that was the case he'd get a ss camaro... but something that can handle the twisties..... he has told me that in terms of moding the car, he'll spend roughly $3500 in mods.
4. Reliability, exterior styling/interior/comfort are all important but every one has their own preferences so i guess this should not be consdiered by you guys
.

Also... please list any other cars that you think would be roughly in the same price field as these cars becuase at this point he is doing more research and is a bit unsure about the Supra ( a bit heavy ) and the RX-7 ( reliability issues ), but both of us agree that the RX-7 is superior in terms of appearance. These are what he has listed and i know he hasnt checked the prices of the cars at the dealer/private home so if you can give a rough estimate ( w/ mileage ~8k/year) please do so. Thanks

Re: close family relative needs input on what car to buy next :D (420247)

Voted for the M-coupe. I like the styling a little better than the M3, has more personality. Yeah, it'll be more expensive than a '95 M3, but I've seen them for under 30k with ~20k miles. The Supra is appealing for its tuning potential, but the price is way up there. I'm always shocked when I look at US prices. I see a bunch for $30k and some even $40k or above. That's EXPENSIVE in my book.

Can he wait? If so, I'd steer him towards the new 350Z. Or perhaps the RX-8....

But from the choices listed, get the Z3 coupe!

well the thing is that we have an uncle that owns 3-4 car dealerships. so it'll be much much cheaper than what he would pay at a dealership (20%+ cheaper). To give you an idea of what kind of deal I'd get, before I bought my corrado, I talked to him about buying an N/A 93 Supra w/ ~65k-70k miles and he said it would cost me about $7k plus shipping ( however, this was the N/A so I don't think demand is high at all)so Im estimating that a 95 M3 with about 60k miles will set him back around $14k plus shipping.
BTW, I called some local BMW dealerships today and the 98 Raodster's with ~ 35k miles are asking about $25k-$27k.
