    2003 Toyota MR2 Spyder - (M5)

    Pros: Handling

    Cons: Seats could be a bit wider

    Advice: Just drive one, you'll buy it.

    The handling of the car is it's best feature, it goes around corners as if it was on rails....and no tire noises! The engine is well suited to the car as is the 5 speed gearing. On a sunny day with the top down it's just a fun car to drive. Plenty of room for tall people, the gas mileage is 27-28mpg with spirited driving. The fit and finish is excellent as befits a Toyota.

    2003 BMW Z4 - 3.0i (M6)

    Pros: Sport button

    Cons: Nothing

    Advice: If you like sports cars and convertables, all I have to say is get it.

    I live in germany so we basicly have our own test track... The autobaun. I went 120 MPH in it with the top down (Recomend you put the top up) but when I stoped at a stop light everyone looked at the car and just for an extra, I revved the engine a little that has a nice rumble to it.

    2003 Lexus SC 430 - Base

    Pros: Hardtop convertible

    Cons: Steering sensitivity

    Advice: If you get one, get the silver or the 'sand' colors since those paint jobs are by far the most eye catching. The car looks hideous in black, and the red version looks like a Miata.

    This is hands down the most pleasurable sports car I've ever driven. Smooth, quiet, and powerful, and it gets a lot of attention as you drive down the road. My only beef is that the steering could be tighter - it's got the loosest steering of any sports car I've owned.

    Pros: Engine....120 HP per Liter....its only a 2 Liter engine...cRAzY @ 240hp

    Cons: More torque would be nice...but dangerous

    Advice: Dont count on using this car when it rains or snows.....

    A great weekend car. Fun in the sun. Words cant express the fun of driving this car.

    2003 BMW Z4 - 3.0i (M6)

    Pros: 6-Speed tran is smooth and silky.

    Cons: Top when down exposes side rail of top-looks as if something is missing

    Advice: Have one built! 'Packages' costing a thousand dollars or more may not be worth the extra price.Get what YOU want !

    I test drove a 2003 M3 first. Fast but boring look inside and out. Drove 2003 Z4 next. Was`nt sure about the styling(inside or out)but after a short drive-I was hooked!! Had a 2002 M - fast but not user friendly. Buy this car -NOW!!!

    2003 Volkswagen New Beetle - GL T (M5) Hatchback

    Pros: Fun to Drive

    Cons: no CD player in dash

    Advice: Buy it! The warranty is good, and you can't find a better car for this price!

    I drove many 4 cylinder new cars, and the New Beetle was by far the most comfortable, best handling of them all. The safety features are great (steel is GOOD!) and there is lots more room than i expected. I bought one, and love it so far! It has turned out to be the best value for its price range.The only thing that is slightly negative is that there is no option for an in-dash Cd player, and for VW to put in a changer is REALLY expensive.

    2002 BMW Z3 - Coupe

    Pros: Body Shape

    Cons: None

    Advice: If you see any Z3 coupe...don't think about it, just grab it. 2002 models are the last one. In my opinion, it will be a collector's item.

    From a woman's point of view...This luxury sports coupe is powerful, smooth and sexy. Although my husband and I didn't buy the Z3 for the 225-horsepower, six cylinder, 3.0 liter engine, and all of many additional surprising features...we bought this car because of the way it looks. It has it's own character...It's odd, but beautiful. 2002 Z3 3.0i sports coupe will get to know it's master's way of driving and will eventually become insync. This sports coupe hugs the road...and obeys command. It needs to be free, to let it's power loose and roar.
