This!

My perfect 320i would be RWD, manual trans, Alpine White, black Leatherette, lighting pkg and a TRUE Sports Package, heated front MANUAL seats for a price of $36,145. Throw a tune on it and bump HP to 215 and torque to 250 and it will be significantly faster than my E30 M3 and probably my E36 M3, heck even without the tune it will be faster than my E30. It weighs 3,295 lbs which is headed in the right direction.

This would be a perfectly affordable, practical and fun-to-drive car and I see no reason to dismiss it as only for badge whores, poor folk or non-enthusiasts.
