    Any ideas what to get? It's a brand new ('04) X5, with like 40k miles on it. So we should get a pretty good amount for it. Looking for something smaller, sport/luxury, and 4-door. We already have an STI (pick it up on the 5th WOOT!) so something else... No Evo either :p P.S. GOnna be the wife's car

    Just for the record Evo's are gay! moving on you should pick up a volkswagon rabbit and drop a v6 in that bitch! your wife will have the time of her life! Problem is it isnt a 4 door. You could also go with a 4 door teg. You can pick them up for cheap and on top of all of that parts are cheap as well. shit you could turbo it and give it to her! Be like "feel the power baby!"

    he is trading it in, which means new car. which means no 4 door teg or motor swapped rabbit :p

    since its your wifes car im thinking performance isnt that big an issue.

    id say bmw 330, volvo s40, infiniti g35, cadilac cts. if you want something cheaper maybe a mazda 6 or 1.8t vw jetta
    or an acura tl would be pimp :p

    Altima SE-R, S60R, another BMW, or the SRT-8 300c, they are AMAZINGLY comfortable and have a TON of power for what they weigh

    awd for the upstate winters, turbo for the fun, lux for the pimp factor.

    Go onto the volvo website (www.volvocars.us) and do a dealer search. Then start calling to find one that's an EVOLVE dealer.

    its a new company thats devoted to making products for the new volvo platforms.
    performance, styling, everything.

    a couple months ago when iw as talking to the volvo dealership about an s40 i was also in communication with the evolve guys. alot of the s40 stuff was prototype then but alot of it should be out now.

    for an awd t5 s40 your looking at 30-35k, to get it to look like an evolve your talking 3-5k more. s60r is of course way more then that :p
