    What about the Saturn Sky (if you like the Pontiac)? Same car, but I like the front end on the Sky more.

    If you can get a good deal on a cooper S, I'd go with that.

    Otherwise, it's a toss-up.

    The solstice and the sky are basically the same thing and the Merc you're looking at seems to be an older model.

    If it's the new one, thats also an option.

    I'd say tough call between Mercedes and that Saturn, which just doesn't sound right.

    Win the lottery or something?

    I like the Sky. Especially if it's going to be a weekend car.

    ya, I'm keeping my suv, which is a toyota rav four, runs perfectly, never gave me a stitch of trouble, but I hate the car

    it's tinny, noisy and girly

    I know a bunch of people that have mitsubishi's and love them but I think the car is a little tame

    I want something that looks a little edgy

    Heh, I've been shopping Solstice's around here. They have a good base, <$20k, but once you add on necessary options, like air conditioning, power windows, decent stereo, etc it gets around the $26k range. I just wish they had about 50 more HP and I would probably own one. If I am going to spend 26 grand I might as well drop a few more bucks and get a Mustang. The 2007 GXP looks really interesting though.
