    I'm planning on buying myself a nice little christmas present, but I'm having trouble deciding on what to buy.

    Right now I am interested in a 2011 Camaro SS Convertible, A 2007 mercedes benz roadster, or a corvette (used 2008-2009 zo6 or 2010-11 base model)

    What would you guys buy?

    I'm putting around 15k down, so financing won't be too bad.

    If you're putting down 15K, I would buy a 15K car.

    I don't like the idea of borrowing against a depreciating asset.

    I understand, but I didn't ask for opinions on whether or not to buy one.

    I'm not really into flashy sports cars so for 40k I'd go with a used Mercedes s350 (though I don't know their price in the US and don't know if it fits your budget). I've had sports cars in the past and they're fun to drive but I think they make people look immature.

    For a little bit of weekend fun a sports car is nice but the luxury sedan remains the symbol of prestige. Of course, it depends what you're looking for and what other cars you own.

    I have been thinking about trading my car in on one of these. I am torn between the new 7 Series BMW or M6 or The MB C63 AMG or S600.

    I think I want the S600..

    I totally get where you are coming from, and that's where I am having trouble with the decision.

    A benz would just be classy, but then again a Camaro would be a pretty sweet ride. That's why I am considering the Benz roadster, kind of the best of both worlds.
