so it's time for a new car, i've got 3 cars right and i'm gonna sell them all and get one nice new car, the price range for a new car is about $30k today i just went looking around to see what things cost and narrow my choices down.
my choices:
2001-2003 s2000
350z
g35 coupe
evo8
nissan titan 4 door
first i looked at the 350z, i was less then impressed, i've never seen one really close up or sat it one before, the outside is beautiful but the interior was not very impressive, i saw one that was a year old at the dealer and the seats were all worn and starting to rip http://****************.com/smile/emthdown.gif so that officially crossed the 350z off the list
then i went to look at a g35 coupe, for what i want i could pick one up for about $30, it was way nicer than the 350z, and i like that it's a 4 seater, so that's a strong possibilty but it's a little to luxury for my personality

then i went and looked at a beautiful white evo8
it was $30k and it's the most my style, turbo, 4 doors, bad ass car, so that deffinitely a possibility especially since my friend has an STI i want the evo so i can go whoop his ass

i still need to go check out an s2000 but it doesn't seem like it will be pratical enough for me
as for the nissan titan i looked at one and it's bad ass but with gas being so much no thanks

any other cars around $30k or less i should look at? i want something nice and fast off the showroom floor that i don't have to mod, i'm done with modded cars for now i have a $30k jetta sitting in my garage that doesn't run

Acura TSX

Not even in the same class as the others. My gf has one and I drive it all the time. Decent vehicle but way underpowered relative to the other options.

Re: (xXx TURBO)

Have you driven the 2004 S2000 and compared it to the older ones? I haven't, but I have heard good things about the new motor. If you already have a Scion, screw practicality and get the convertible!!!
