    Default LF: Fun car under $25K

    Looking for a fun car under $25K

    - Nothing over 80,000 kms preferably unless it's in really nice shape.
    - Won't consider higher mileage German cars
    - Prefer manual but will consider an auto if it's fun enough of a car in that configuration.
    - Prefer AWD or RWD, will consider FWD if it's something special.

    Feel free to PM me.

    Thanks in advance

    Bump your budget 2-3G and buy a 2016 enthusiast edition 370Z. Best deal around these days.

    One with no options is close to $30k all in right now. To get one close to 25k you need to wait for employee pricing.

    1-2 year old ones are in the low 20s, high teens however.

    IIRC OP already had a E60 M5, otherwise I think that'd be high on the list.

    As mentioned, a 370Z would be another one that comes to my mind. Maybe an S2K. I would never buy a first gen CTS-V, those cars are horrendous to spend time in - interior looks/feels like a rental car.

    There's at least 2 active postings under $20k in our marketplace right now; GTS_jeff and someone else. You do your own search.

    I got mine for 25K flat including all taxes and fees, and I've heard a few people have been able to get them for even a few hundred under that up in Edmonton

    They actually offered me a full loaded one (so Nav + Sunroof) they had on the lot for the same price at the time... but I wanted one without the sunroof. WEIGHT SAVINGS!!! lol

    Given the economic climate in AB, if you can find a dealer with one on the lot, it should be easy to get it for under 25K all in.

    I got my fully loaded Focus ST for not a cent more than 30k out the door. Huge bargain of a car considering mid-top trim junk Corolla, Sentra, Lancer, Cruze, Impreza, Dart etc. go for 25k+.

    2017's are out-going, so any new FoST's sitting on lots from 2017 model year will have heavy discounts, incentives, etc. with either 0% financing or employee pricing.

    Heated Recaros, heated steering wheel, 6spd Getrag, high performance Eagle F1 summer tires, Nav, 10 speaker sound system, sunroof, ambient lighting, keyless/push start, tight steering, touchy brakes, 270wtq FWD tire roasting shenanigans, a Stage 1 flash away from 300wtq.

    Thanks, but hilariously, it's not really moving, though I haven't been trying too hard either. It will be a steal for whomever ends up with it.

    Was going to PM you, but for some reason the site wants to send it to user: CanadaSucks

    Anyways, not sure how old you're looking for, but I've got a Saabaru (Subaru WRX) half-heartedly FS, for 1/2 your budget.

    Best bang for your buck here:

    http://www.kijiji.ca/v-cars-trucks/c...ationFlag=true

    Mileage is higher then your requirement but these cars are cheap to fix and much more reliable then the European options.

    Last week there was an '07 with 37k for $17.5k. Sold immediately out of Edson.
    I like neat cars.
