I've been looking at motors in this price bracket, up to 2 years old,and there are loads of interesting options:

Chrysler 300c Hemi
Hummer H3
Toyota Prado (less interesting)
Mitubishi EVO - Clarkson was all over it on this weeks Top Gear.

2006 Subaru Legacy 3.0l 4WD (50kDhs), full option.

Wouldn't know really what I will get in the end, but it is nice to have an alternative to something German, boring and fuel efficient.

I love the 300c. There are quite a few of them here. Makes me go all funny when I see one...

you can also try the 5.7L Dodge Charger. Its the BE car to have now (apparently).

Lumina SS is also another choice

I am really tempted, as the do look like a mini bentley, but am worried they are a bit bling bling gangsta.

But if the ladies love them ...

the only one i like among all of those is the prado .. the rest are not so reliable ..

however, i got an offer for a mercedes S350 for 100,000 ..which is an excellent one..

white color ... bige interior and full option accidents free... very nice car ..

and i will see if i will manage to buy it with this price
