A low mileage corrado will be hard to find, and amazingly, even the high mileage ones are fetching pretty high prices for cars that are almost 10 years old...
But have you driven one? Wow. Both versions, the G60 and the VR6 (although I'm biased on this engine as I have a GTIVR6) are amazing, but the VR6 (dubbed the slc??) are the newest ones you'll find.
Otherwise, great list. I would add the Maxima to that list, too. It sounds odd, but my roommate just picked up a 95 SE (the only version I would consider), and it's a fun car! It's got the same engine as the last generation 300ZX, and it runs like a bat outta hell :)
Personally, I would skip the 318Ti, and see if you can find a 95-98 GTI VR6 (again, that bias), but they really are fast - sort of a sleeper car with practicality built it. They were a bit expensive new, but next to the 318Ti, they were a bargain. Your typical GTI from 95 will includes all options as the only options available were leather and a cd-changer. They made a non-VR6 model during those years too, but I wouldn't bother with that one - might as well get the 318 then...
Well, good luck in your purchase, and at school.
