Exclamation what is the best choice?

i am 17.5 years old and when i reach 18 i gonna buy a car model 2004 or newer , the features that should exist in my car are:

comfort and must be automatic.
4-5 seats cause 2 seats won't help me when driving car with my friends.
convertible and that is the feature that must be found in this car.
it must be faster than the 2005 mercedes-benz SLK 350 cause my friend got one
that car must have an amazing sound system.
prefering that the top(roof) of that convertible car be metal not leather.
that car must be of high performance and i dont care if this car is a gas guzzler or no.

Look into a 2005-2007 SLK55 custom stretch. It will be large enough to carry your friends and ego...

Problem with the SLK55 custom stretch is that it comes with a leather roof as standard.

I think with this one you slightly exceed his budged; by a buck fifty or two.

There are no 4 seat, metal roof, convertibles that are faster than the SLK.

Forgot about that one, but I think it's really very close to the SLK. If you load it up with 4 people, I'm sure that it will be slower. SLK350 5.4s to 60, M3 is 5.3s to 60.

The kid is looking to spend $20,000; yes you can find a high mileage 2004 four seat ragtop M3 for around 20k.
But he demanded that it has to be a hardtop convertible; correct me if Im wrong, but that was introduced in 2006 and became available in 2007 or 8; now you are talking 45 to 55k.
