I got mine with 28k ( mint ) and a new block for $24k, you show me a new car that offers this kind of luxury, quality of build and performance for that money! It does get 16 cty/25 hwy and so far ( 7k miles ) has not needed an ounce of maintenance. Though I do expect to spend some money in the future ( Inspection 2, brakes and all ), I'm keeping it for the long haul.
Go with the V8( if it's Ausil! )! Except if you plan on working on it yourself ( I used to ), I realize most peeps on this board do just that and I'm envious - I don't have that kind of time.
