In the latest episode of Fifth Gear, Jason Plato is looking to find the best car to be had for 5,000 British Pounds, or around $7,000. The three cars he’s been eying are the E85 BMW Z4, Porsche Boxster S and Mazda RX-8.

The E84 Z4 in question is powered by a 3.0 liter gasoline engine with 231 horsepower and 300 Nm of torque. The odometer shows 80,000 miles.

In the end, the Z4 prevails as the best out of the three, mostly thanks to its versatility as a daily driver, nicer interior design and better fuel consumption.
