Well my first question is, do you own the car....like is it paid off. If not...how much do you owe. You have to keep in mind what the car is actually worth to the dealer....which is around $8,000-$10,000 depending on options and mileage. Also, how much cash are you willing to put as a down payment. That all has an effect on you getting a new car.

Trust me i tried to do the same thing a few months ago and failed.

Ummm... One of these things is not like the other. That 335i is obviously the best car there by a large margin. I'm not sure why the STi is there considering it's also more expensive... But definitely get the 06-07 rather than the 2010 if you do. Best looking and performing generation there was.

Avoid the Si, it's SLOW - nice car, but it's made for people who want to think they're fast, not actually go fast. Same goes for the tC, that thing isn't a performance car.

As for the TC? Well, for the price you can't go wrong... But it doesn't make sense to compare it to an STi or 335i. They're nowhere in the same ballpark price-wise, though performance-wise the TC can certainly hang with them. I love mine, but I doubt I'd have chosen it over a 335 or 06' STi...

I'd go STI but if I were you I would look for a 04, 05, or 06

i still owe $8,000 but planing on putting as high as $25,000 on a car. I know none of these are equal cars but there what i have in mind. I picked 06-07 sti because i have a 768whp 05 sti right now but it has a cage in it and can't get the baby in it.

BMW but when that 4 year service plan and warranty run out, you should do the same. For the varying price ranges there i would look at everything fits in there and not limit myself to one of them.

You know, we need some pics of that monster!!! Oh yeah. If you are really wanting something to drive everyday stick with the Cobalt, you already got a toy at home.
