someone parked a Ferrari California right by my driveway. i'm trying to figure out who it belongs to. it's much better looking close up.

What car would you get in the 50-60kish range? Maybe up to 70kish but don't want to go much over...
I've been looking at the Jaguar XF, BMW 5 series, Mercedes E-class coupe, and Porsche Boxster S as possibilities. Which would you recommend? Any others? I prefer smaller cars which is what makes me hesitant about the XF, 5-series and E-class, but also don't really need the power of something like a M3 considering I spend most of my time in gridlock traffic. Maybe wait for the Jaguar F-type but I'm also not a huge fan of convertibles and it's up in the air whether they will make a hardtop F-type?
you're kind of all over the map in terms of what you're considering. big saloons, convertibles, 2-seat sports cars...it's pretty much impossible to compare those. it sounds like you're looking for something from one of the luxury marques, and have a price in mind, but what else are you looking for?
personally i think the best car for around $70k is the BMW M3 4dr, but that's why i own one...YMMV.
