As good as it gets for under $50k

2006 BMW Z4 3.0si 2dr Convertible (3.0L 6cyl 6M)
The new 3.0 engine in the si model is incredible. Massive amounts of smooth power, beautiful sound when pushed hard, and a hard to believe 25+ mpg when driven hard. What truly makes the Z4 3.0si great is how well everything works together. The 6-speed manual tranny is perfectly matched to the engines power curve, the brakes have a perfect feel and no fade, the handling with the sport package is race car like.
Engine, styling, tranny, ohh did I mention the engine?
Tone down the active steering assist a little bit.
