    I agree with the sentiments here but my two cents for what it's worth (Probably nothing )

    I would take a look at an M3 sedan (RWD : 3.0l turbo : 331kw and 550nm of torque) - specification dependant but most of them around your price range. 1/8 mile time: 8.1

    Mercedes-Benz C63 or C63S (4.0 l, V8 Biturbo, 350kw and 650nm of torque) the S is (the same engine but upped to 400kw and 700nm of torque). 1/8 mile time - 8.2 for the S variant

    Audi RS3 (completely different engine from the V8 growl you're looking for but for straight line speed difficult to beat - 2.5l turbo, 294kw and 480nm) tested at 0-100kh at 3.81 seconds up here on the reef if my memory serves me correctly. 1/8 mile time: 7.5

    1/8 mile provided for a traffic light to traffic light scenario.

    The M2 is also up there but in terms of funtionality (two less doors) and every day livability, I think it's outclassed by the makes and models listed above, in terms of everyday practicality, features available etc. - you can do some research, still a fantastic car but just my opinion. I think being a 3 door vs a 5 door has significant downsides.

    I do agree with what everyone's said if you want sheer 0-100 speed then get a bike and put the rest of the money to use somewhere else, I'd drive all the options listed above and any others you're considering and see which of them offers the performance I like best and the stuff you forget to check that you have to live with on a daily basis. Storage (door compartments, cubby hole, centre console etc), cabin noise, entertainment system and ease of use (intuitiveness)... the usuals.

    Good luck dude
