    Well i'm in the market for a new ride (lloking for somehting slightly used) and not sure what i should get. My budget is 25k +/- 3k. What i'm looking for is somthing factory boosted, RWD or AWD. (no evo's or STI's) need something alittle more upscale than those. Would like something with factory Navi, leather. I was looking at an 04' G35 fully loaded with everything but from what i've ready the stock VQ block doens't respond well to boost. I'm tired of boosting NA cars and would rather buy something boosted from the factory so i can just replaced the turbo's, fuel, and managment and be happy. Let me know what you guy thinks.

    Anyone have any thoughts on Audi? Been looking at a few of those, I mean i could go up to 30k but would rather keep it below that point right now. Looking at buying a crib and don't want to sink to much money into a new car, Shit i just bought a new truck 9 months ago for the wifey so now i just need something alittle more upscale then the Civic. I was really thinking about an STI but i don't like the interior, dash is wack, They are nice car's performance is worth every penny but not as upscale, but no navi, leather, and just isnt' as saficsticated (sp) as i would like it to be. Evo is'nt worht the money. If i wasn't such a penny pinch i would just buy a used rs6 and call it a day. But like i said i'm no dropping 50k on a ride right now. I have a wedding to pay for (30k), Looking to buy a new place (300k +). So i'm trying to keep the price down.

    insurance isn't really that bad on it.

    i have 100k/300k liability, and full comp/glass on it plus misc uninsured motorists and med payment options, and it costs me 110 more per 6 months than my sti did.
    and my sti cost me about 150 bucks more per 6 month than my civic did, which only had liability on it-- no comp or glass.

    so, 260 bucks per 6 months for both full coverage, and not a civic.

    Don't listen to him or the slutty one.

    Drive the evo and decide based on that. shit, drive every car you can before you make a decision. I bet yo ucould talk em down to 21. Its only two years old and already has 28k on it, thats 14k a year, higher than average. Is it a base? Leather? MR?

    The EVO is the GSR modle, power everything/sunroof ect. has rota grids on it. I'm just worried because you know if someone bought they beat it. i mean you don't buy an evo to just fart around in, you buy them to have fun and beat them down. I did go by the mazda dealer today and looked at the mazdaspeed3 grand touring. i must admit it's kinda nice, and 4 doors in nice consitering we plan on having a kid in then next 2/3 years. The price is nice at 25, i'm sure i can talk them down because i'm paying cash, and i've never owned a brand new car (well the truck but thats the wifeys) i'm going to go driving in a few of them this weekend and see what i actually like, but the mazda is growing on me. The mazda speed 6 new is out of my price range 31k even with talking to them i'm sure it would only go down to 28 and if i'm paying that i mine as well by somehitng else.

    You're going to say that the s40r t5 is a waste? How about a used s60r?
