ANOTHER what car to buy thread...sorry!

I'm sure you guys (and gals) get a lot of these around here, but I'm a wanna-be car guy with NO car guy friends to help me out.

Anyway...here's my situation. I want to spend LESS than $30,000 total on a new/used car. This price will have to include any modifications as well, but I also don't mind leaving a car fairly stock if it performs well as is. I need to commute 45 minutes each way to work, so gas mileage will be a factor...and I would like to stay low miles (no Toyota Supra's with 90k). Also, four seats would be preferred, since kiddies might be only a few years away.
BUT I STILL WANT TO HAVE FUN!!!

My current list (ranked):

1. Mazda RX-8: not many mods needed to make this fun, but gas mileage is not very good.

2. Infiniti G35: luxury ride, yet good performance...high end of price range though.

Other possiblities:
Honda S2000
Nissan 350Z
Acura RSX
BMW M-Coupe
Pontiac GTO
Ford Mustang GT
Lexus IS300
Subaru Impreza WRX (STI maybe)
Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution

Bassically, I need help narrowing this list down to 2-3 cars and what mods might be needed to make them fun. Thanks for helpin' a newbie out!
