E39's have a lot of electronic problems. It costs a lot to maintain them as well.

It's hilarious because a lot of people who build cars end up parting out/selling their car within 3 years and don't gain anything out of it. Rather losing shitloads of money. BAD investment.

Truth, that satisfaction only last so long after you build it and then shit starts to break down or need replacing and you just don't want to deal with it anymore. I spent way more than my car was worth and took a major loss when i had to sell it...

99.9% of the cars people are listing arn't anywhere near 300hp in this thread. You can get a f-body for about 6-10g's. The LS1 they have is known to make 300-330HP and around 360TQ to the wheels bone stock.

pontiac gto is going to be a great choice for power. don't forget about insurance and gas. 350zs are excellent so are g35 but they are known to burn oil and are very costly to mod. there is the mustang gt as well. great platform and HUGE aftermarket. A terminator would be sick, but for 15k you would get a high mileage one.

You should check out the Bugatti Veyron. With that big budget of yours, that wouldn't be a problem.

B5 S4 and re tune it youll easily have 300bhp, Evo 8/Sti but insurance will rape you, E46 M3 but itll have to have around 60-80k, any muscle car with really low mileage.

I just got a 350z and love it, g35 is same with +2 seats. Thats probably the best overall car for your price range.
Power, Reliability, ok mileage, and sporty.

A Jetta is fast? & reliable? Since when? Even with a turbo upgrade, that shit is slow as hell.
