Oh I didn't realize the 335 was twin turbo. I thought it was a straight 6 NA. Even more reason to get that. Audi may be nice to look at but don't you want nice power and sports tuned suspension too?

White is straight sexy. Too many people like Black but I'd prefer White any day.

White looks nice, but cleaning your car exists.

Black is nice. Blue is good on a lot of audi's as well

You can still have class/luxary with performance. G37 definitely is nice but it's not going to touch an all around machine like a twin turbo BMW (serious racing heritage). I personally only have experience with Japanese and American (S2000, SRT4, WRX, Civic turbo and current Trans Am) but I've driven both BMW and Audi and prefer BMW.

Twin Turbo+RWD>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>NA with 200 HP and AWD. So much drivetrain loss with the Audi's due to Quattro system... not to mention most Audi's are actually FWD native. Turbo+RWD is the ultimate performance combo. I know you're coming from performance and it's not a priority but why not have it all? Performance, luxury, looks, class etc. I would never be able to talk myself into paying that much for a luxury car that only had 200 ish HP.

True. White+convertible is a very bad mix... but white in general is .

Get something American dude. Like a Mustang. Seriously people need to buy more American stuff. Seeing all the kids getting Nintendo Wii or PS3 instead of xbox makes me sick.

Just because you have a problem with globalization doesn't mean everyone else does, too.

This is coming from somebody with an American car (Chevy) and a Japanese motorcycle (Kawasaki).

If I was in your price range Rezznor I'd get the new Coyote 5.0 Mustang. I know you want a calmer 4 door though. The new Mustang handles as well as an M3 believe it or not (track tested) and does stock quarter mile in the high 12's. Also Ford's gotten extremely reliable and economical.
