I am buying a new car, Under 60k Canadian. Suggestions?I'm looking at new vehicles and am soliciting advice and/or opinions. My absolute hard limit is 60 000$ Canadian and I would prefer to be below this. I would mention monthly payments, but that would be a bit misleading considering we would end up at different payments based upon different credit ratings etc...

Though it seems cliché to say I want a " fast " car... I am looking at performance vehicles in what might be termed the " sport " class. I present my two current leaders as far as picks go, but I should emphasize that I am interested in other options as well, especially if they have the same features that appeal to me in the listed cars. Also, I am currently looking at new vehicles. I am aware that they depreciate extremely fast, however they also come with brand new warranties and I want the peace of mind that comes from purchasing something I know just rolled out of the factory.

Current Picks :

BMW 135i Coupé.
* Sport Package, Premium Sound Package, Comfort Package, Premium Package. Couple other things. Total Price on Canadian Site: 55 600$

Basic Stats: 6 Speed Steptronic, 3.0 L Straight 6, 300 Hp, 300 lb-ft of Torque. RWD.

Why I like it: Has awesome looks, I like the straight 6 since it is a naturally balanced engine. BMW definitely has name recognition, both as a status thing but also for myself. I have driven an older 325i extensively and I really enjoy it. It is quick as hell from all reports that I've read, but a quick brush along the specs sheets show that they [BMW] pay a ton of attention to the little things in an automobile. It definitely fits has the " luxury " bit covered. Did I mention it looks killer?


Chevrolet Camaro, 2SS,
* Rally Sport Package, Some Stuff. Total Price on Canadian Site: 46 115$

Basic Stats: 6 Speed Manual or 6 Speed Steptronic, 6.2L V8, 426 Hp, 420 lb-ft of Torque. RWD

Why I like it: Absolutely great styling. To be honest, the movies (the car is used in Transformers) have given me an appreciation for the vehicle since I get to see it moving around. It is for sure a big noisy power car... I can appreciate that. The interior looks amazing. I suppose what I really like best is the styling.


Thank for any suggestions you guys might have, I would appreciate any reasoning behind your picks as well. On a more personal note, this is my inaugural yahoo answers question.
