READ THIS REVIEW IF YOU READ ANY: Well, where do I start. First of all, in reference to all of you who are throwing a fit over the HP, let me just say... I did my research for a year before buying. I drove the EVO, the 350Z and the WRX... The EVO looks like a sixteen year olds playtoy, feels and sounds like its gonna fall apart, and for being a "street racing chic-magnet" will have your date at the chiropractor the very next morning. Buy it, if you like cruising High School parking lots for your dates, because no woman over the age of eighteen knows what it is nor cares. For $35,000, it's junior high looks will never measure up to the price tag.
The 350Z, while one of the greatest cars on the road... still, try just getting in and out of it for starters. And while you do so try to remember what year it was introduced to the market and realize it's up for redesign within the next few years (something to think about before laying down that much cash for something that will plunge in value within a few years). And irregardless of how great it is, it will never compliment the older or sophisticated crowds as a Crossfire does.
The WRX... also a great car, but still just a Subaru with Subaru styling that will never measure up to the price tag.
The Crossfire. Yes, it could be improved. I think it could be quieter on the freeways, there is very little acceleration at freeway speeds (even though it DOES have better freeway acceleration than the 350Z, as I've proven to many owners of such several times), the seats could be much better (Recaro?), and the SRT6... well, fifteen grand extra for a turbo and a terrible looking STATIONARY spoiler IS ridiculous. HOWEVER, it is Mercedes built, it will turn heads in a way that no other car can within its price range, and when it comes to making such a hefty investment along the lines of any of these cars, you need to look for a balance of performance and appearance, instead of throwing away your cash on something that has the power, but will never impress the way the price tag says it should. This car is the ultimate balance, and a work of art in comparison most (attainable) cars on the road. When jaws drop and the sixteen years olds jump out of their Scions and the sixty year olds out of their Infinitis to crowd around my car whenever I pull up, I know that that speaks for itself.
