And contrary to what Daika says, i would NEVER be able to go back to a corrado after being in the MR2...

Re: what to get if i sell the raddo.... (daryl)

I have been faced with this same dilema several times... but haven't ever had the heart to follow through and sell the Corrado, but here are some cars I would definately "consider."
E36 M3
944 Turbo S
A4 1.8t (ready for mods)
968... oohhh laaa laaa

I would have to say with that money, iether a 944 Turbo S as stated above, and before my Corrado I had a 93 BMW 325is.... while not as fast as the M3, same handling with a few suspension mods, and is just about as fast as the corrado, and faster if you put a couple more mods on than you had on the C

Supra or 3000GT. The 3000 is more affordable. The awd gt would have all the traction you could ask for but a rwd car would be more fun. I haven't researched it, but I think I would look into get a 3000 GT non turbo for a good deal then put a big aftermarket turbo in it. I know someone with a 700+ hp Supra, that is a scary ride.
But expensive.

Re: what to get if i sell the raddo.... (B(C)orrado)

umm..just to make it clear...u wont find a 944 Turbo S for 6grand, an 86 or 87 Turbo yes, but not a Turbo S....944 Turbo S was only produced in 1988 along side the Turbo....then in 1989 the Turbo was dropped and the Turbo S became the Turbo...so an 89' Turbo is identical to an 88' Turbo S..90 and 91...only the S2 was available..now a mint condition 89' Turbo can cost as much as 25grand..most are in the region of 12-20 grand depending on mileage and condition...the less u spend...the more headachs and maintnance...to give you an idea of what a 944 Turbo S is capable of.
Top Speed: 162MPH
0-60: 5.5
1/4: 13.5
250HP/260LBS of torque.....2800LBS 50/50 weight distri. RWD.
2.5L 8V KKk Turbo

Eh, I have a small fetish for F-bodies. To have that kind of power band almost anywhere in the tach, is crucial. When there's that much power, I don't think you'll worry about handling too much.
Another C wouldn't be so bad after all though. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

Re: what to get if i sell the raddo.... (SSj4G60)

i got an a4 1.8T (Chipped) as a replacement. While not nearly as fun, it is more comfortable, reasonably fast, and outhandles a WS6 f-body in the mountain twisties. I might get another g60 down the road when i can afford two cars, but for now i'm quite happy. Pics in my sig.
