I'm not going to count tints, cause everyone here has them. So yeah, I don't think the M3 scene that Drew is talking about is the same the world over, maybe in small pockets.
NYC isn't really a car place man, so that doesn't count. From what I gather on the internets though, there's tons of badly modified cars in the NY area for sure, they definitely apply to the shittily modified BMW camp out there.

You should be safe, but stay away from the red centercaps. I hate those with the passion of the christ.

Jeep Wrangler Sahara (4 door hardtop)

Alfa Romeo (whatever large sedan might come to our shores in the future) (not gonna happen, I know)
Audi A8 - would need to buy used
Lexus GS - the new sedan for $46k +/-
I have to act like a professional, so the snoot factor has to factor in a bit.
Pretty mixed list, I'd get the A8, I think you'd stay happy with it for awhile. Get a 2008+ one. Maybe get a separate 'fun' car so that you don't expect the A8 to do everything.
