What car to get next? Mon, 14 June 2004 09:53 Go to next message

what car next[ 42 vote(s) ]
1.Nissan 200sx 14 / 33%
2.Subaru WRX 4 / 10%
3.Toyota Supra 16 / 38%
4.Celica GT4 7 / 17%
5.Nissan 300zx 1 / 2%

Getting tired of the Charade after driving nice and fast cars at work all the time,

Want something with a bit of power and go but something which isn't too expensive and something i don't have to spend money on to make it go half decent.

What car should i buy? budget $10,000 - 20,000
big fan of 2 door coupes Very Happy after the first one i've benn hooked since.

driven plenty of sports cars, nicest handling of them all was the 200sx, lots of feedback and very forgiving.

for that price, you cant really beat a 200sx.

For that price. R32 GT-R. I've been told they're around the $18k mark now that they're over 15 years old (and can be brought in cheaply).

I vote 200sx

the z32's look nice, but they are a money pit in repairs and what not.

the only thing that stopped me doing this is that i think it would be a massive mechanical headache, all the parts are expensive, i mean the engines in used condition sell for like 7k+. of course its a more desirable option than a 200 but if theres any mechanical dramas it will put a MASSIVE hole in your pocket. 200 is also newer/nicer inside, and sr20 ect is much more widley supported. id be sketchy about how cheap a 18k GTR would actually end up being. (although its tempting isnt it)

Think GTS-T Tue, 15 June 2004 05:19 Go to previous messageGo to next message
I voted 200sx - coz you'll be able to afford a nice one, with change from $20k for a turbo-back exhaust + hi-flow cat. I don't think a neat S14 would be out of the question.....

Why didn't the GTS-T make the list? An early build R33 series II will come in at just on $20k, complianced and ready to go. One of the guys at Carizma was telling me just a couple of weeks ago that they have quite a nice one for a whisker over $20k in stock. All that capacity, so much tuning potential, so many revs, interior space, comfort......mmmmmmmmmm.....GTS-TTTTttttttttt

nope Skyline is right out of the question too many heaps of shit around on the roads,

and i'm dieing to get back out in a RWD car, 180sx nope too old and shit looking if i was going to get an older car again i would go for another RA23 Cool , and i don't plan on doing any mods, too expensive and wast of money, only mods i would do is under the bonnet and make it a bit of a sleeper.

200SX - cheapest for modifying - parts are easy to get ..

if you like rallying - get a st185 group A and tinker it a bit

Had to vote 200sx, just got a fetish for the older and newer models. Finally convinced my dad to get one Razz

You can get a really nice 200sx for about $18000

for that money you could get a carlos sainz GRP A GT4 celica, although it is 4WD, but still a great car for the money, saw one on the w/e for $17k with minor mods i think there was also one on casales.

Man all those cars are sweet, take your pick really Razz

Might be hard to find a good nick WRX for anything less than 19 or 20 grand.

I'm going the GT4 myself so that's what I voted for.
