The new Volvo S40 T5

Hey everybody. I have been looking for a great sports-sedan car for around $30,000, and I believe I have found one with the brand-new Volvo S40 T5. Does anybody know something better in the same price range? And don't say WRX STi or Mitz. Evo, because I mean something I can drive that is dependable for just driving to work every day (but with great performance nonetheless )

okay...two problems with your recommendations.

1) the S2000 isn't a sedan.

2) the Leon Cupra isn't sold in Sarasota Fl, where RX8Factor lives.
