What are you looking for, i.e. what are your priorities?

Quite the disparge between those models. Sounds like you need to narrow your choices down a bit.

Mustang GT- no- great Engine- but oudated otherwise
Eclpse Spider- do they still offer a turbo model??? If not then leave it
RSX Type S- YES a very Sleek, very quick coupe
BMW Z3- no a poorly engineered, extremely rushed pose mobile


The S2000, TT and BMW Coupe are the highest reccomened- hoever the lower range 3xxCi are underpowered (but quick) and the S2000 revs away all it's torque- I'd say go the Audi TT

Same as Jim :
S2000, TT or 3ci (at least the 320ci). The Honda and the Audi have only 2 seats, don't forget it.

On the Basis of style - I prefer the Audi TT. I am not a big gearhead so I couldn't tell you any other reason to get the car. But - it looks damn nice.

who needs more than two seats? if you have kids... get some rope and strap them on.

"who needs more than two seats" : personnally, when i choosed my car, I wanted a 4 doors car, not 2 as my first car a VW Golf : it's not very practical when you go on hollydays with friends. And you often need more than 2 seats when you want to bring some people with you, that's all
I took my 156, but I hesitated with the Alfa GTV and the Peugeot 206 CC... only 2 seats. Or 4 "false" seats
that's a choice : and when you have a car, you often "share it"

I realize there will be times when you need more room. That comment was sarcastic. Many people that buy some of these small two seaters own other cars that are more functional. But the kid is looking (from what I can tell) speed and style. The Audi has both of these.

Arrow

The built quality is not worthy of a current BMW, the handling is not so good. Just one thing : my neighbourg have a Z3 and the direction broke at 38 000 km ! (25 000 miles)..... not tolerable for a so recent car (their Z3 was 2 years old) and BMW did nothing !!!

.. loving these "bmw's break a lot" myths

Haibane>

the Z3 isnt a bad car, but a lot is expected from BMW, which the Z3 never managed to deliver, except for the Z3M
