    Well everyone else seems to be doing it so I'm getting a new car, I have posted up about it somewhere before but that was just to gauge interest, tomorrow after work Im going to see about going to take a look at it. If I like it and it clears then I'm going to trade my crx and $3k for it.
    Also I'm sort of curious what they run like as far as HP and what can be done with turbo, I know some came stock with turbo, I'd appreciate some info as I know jackshit about nissans.

    If you want a turbo, buy a TT model.

    don't bother with this one.

    P.S also keep in mind mods/parts wont be anything like a honda.

    Very true. Besides Twin turbo is the best.. if not the only way to go, in a thing like that!

    Thanks guys, I looked up NADA value on these things and its something around $4200 so I figured allowing just $1200 is fair considering the crx does need some work. So do any of you guys have anything up for sale? The only catch is I'd have to pay $500 a month until I pay you off but of course you'd keep the title until said amount of money is payed. Let me know

    Edit: I was also looking at this but...I wouldn't know where to begin

    that 300 isnt worth 5k.
    its in shitty condition and i garuntee that its been wrecked since he replaced the front bumper cover and middle piece.

    the NA 300's are fun though. for a non turbo they will get up. turbo is always better.
    but for that price. fuck that.

    You are getting yourself into a money pit. I know you say you don't have a lot of $$$. Try getting a civic or other cheap car.

    I flaked out of buying a new car, mainly because I looked at insurance, the dealer wouldn't budge on the price (I was already offering 1.5k over invoice), and I figured that my current car (a '99) should last me another 5-10 years.

    How old are you? Do you want to have a car, or do you want to live for your car? Srsly. Don't do it. Unless you have 20% to put as a down-payment. Then you'll almost make out alright. Let me reiterate.

    I've worked out a little system to help people decide when they need a new car. If you can answer yes, go to the next bullet.

    lmao well I had planned on getting a beater to fix the crx, idk here lately its just been pissing me off with alot of little odd and end problems, you know how it goes. But today I got offered a full time job at the machine shop and he offered to train me and have me working as a mechanic getting $12/hr within 3 months. That may not seem like alot to some of you guys but for me thats fantastic. Anyways I think Im keeping it after all because Fred (the owner/my boss) said he'd help me out with rebuilding a engine for the crx, sleeving the block, P & P the heads, everything so I'm pretty happy about that. :D
    I still need a beater though
    preferably a manual and something below $1500, I have $1200 cash in hand right now and Im sure I can come up with $300 within a few days.

    ninja 250 will be new (reliable) and affordable

    go for it
    craigslist

    or get a moped/scooter
    those 150cc scooters get a bad rep but they're real fun to cruise around on
    you can get one street legal brand new for about 800-1200

    no offense but I'd never ride a moped or a scooter. I saw one on the street a few days ago and thought to myself, this guy fails at life"
    I think a 250 would be too small for me, I'm 6'1" 210lbs
    I'd look like an idiot on a bike that small

    eh, sit on one and see how it feels
    they'r pretty peppy

    don't knock the mopeds man
    i personally couldn't use one as a DD, but we got to rent them overnight last year at lake george and it was a blast
    driving through wendy, jumping sidewalks, getting arrested for doing smokey burnouts and getting laughed out of court cause you were hot dogging a moped (even the judge laughed)

    i wasn't the one that got in trouble though
    lol

    I'll go to the yamaha shop when I have some free time and check out some 250's and see how they feel, if its not too gimpy I'll look ofr a used one, if so then itll have to be a 600. If anyone runs across a cheap bike or car let me know :D

    any problems with it?
