I can't decide what to go for:
Subaru WRX STI - To me it looks too much like a kids car and the performance exhaust doesn't exactly scream refined although I love the way the car handles and the power.
Volkswagon GTI - fun car to drive, least expensive option. Most practical.
BMW 1 series - A lot of fun, most expensive, not a lot of space inside.
BMW 3 series - Would have to go with the lower end model, more space inside.
Infiniti G37 - Good sized car, seem to be a little overpriced
I could go really practical and go with:
Nissan Altima - great gas mileage, reliable
Subaru WRX Standard - Not as much power, still has AWD, would get the hatchback for the added convenience.
Anything else I should be looking at?
Subaru's are great, reliable cars. You'll be thrilled with the Infiniti if you go that route; great car, lots of style. I don't like the GTI design but they're fun to drive. I had a 20th anniversary GTI that I beat to **** a while back (got it off auction after it had been in a flood, worked on it, repainted it, lowered it, chipped it, etc.). If I were you I might look at GLIs. I like the look better.
As for me. I've gotten older, slowed down my driving and have to think about the future with my next purchase. I'm currently driving a 2010 Accord coupe V6 with a few goodies, but I'm not nearly as into cars as I was 5-8 years ago.
