Oppo challenge: find a safer, more desirable conveyance for less than fifteen K.

For a baseline, this is a 2oo7 550i. It's a piece of shit, I've repaired almost every gasket, and all the valve seals, and a lot more, but it's beautiful and drives like nothing else. It's a killer drive. I like it more than I want to admit. But it's not a long-term thing, unless I'm willing to invest in it, which I'm pretty sure I'm not.

Photo's mine. RWD, fake manual, 4.8l mahfackin V8.

What would you buy?
