LOL....damn..thought I asked!

Infinity FX35:

Feels and rides like a sports car and luxury
Comes in AWD
Spacious
Great mechanically sound engine

I was looking into this car and the Audi A3...till I came across the Sportcross.

MPG isn't so great though....15/20ish

How about an E39 M5? Not the best on gas, but you can get a pretty damn good one right now if your budget is $30K. Plus, it's got enough space for other people and baggage if you decide to take a trip somewhere. I'm in love with mine and I'm going to drive it until it falls apart.

Edit: Just saw that you needed AWD. Never mind.

John park the Gixxer at my house, still have room in my garage hahaha. Honestly the EVO is what I'd pick, if and whenever I get out of my IS I'll still need boost and 4 doors. AWD is a bonus, another option is looking at the G35/7 sedans with AWD. Very nice cars but a bit long.

Oh stay away from B5 S4s. I have 5 friends with them and 3 of them have CELs every few weeks.

How about an Infiniti G35x? The standard wheels suck, but you can upgrade those. Otherwise, Japanese reliability, great value for money (they come pretty loaded), but they are thirsty (but you probably won't notice if you have the 1st gen IS).

You can mod it too.

The only thing I have against Evos and Subies is that little 12 year old douchebags tend drive them (No offense to the grownup owners).

I've heard Porsche's are the best snow-going sportscars.... haha

Seriously... Evo's > Rex's imo

S4's are GREAT cars too...

I am staying around the sport compact area, so far my top pick is a EVO or STI. Someone just sent me a email on a pretty nice and cleanly modded EVO.

I went from an S4 to a G37s. Both were great cars that I'd recomend.
