I'll probably replace my altima before her prelude...it's on its last legs.

if thats the case I'll more than likely go wrx, but the ms3, ms6, c30, and a few others are on my list. It's hard for me to decide, but I might just buy my dads 330i ZHP and call it a day.

It is however extremely easy to work on.

My replacement will be a subbie most likely, but I'm looking at the '07-08 2.5L wrx wagon.


But whatever I do buy, I'll make sure it's aqua/blue, has headlight and taillight covers, and one hell of an ugly spoiler.
Your wife should care about it cornering on rails. Shame on you for not showing her the joy of Gs.
Your prelude shouldn't burn oil. At least not at 30k miles.

I think 08 rex has issues.

every prelude burns oil.

I used to take my wife autoxing, shed drive along, but she couldnt give two ***** about cars. she just likes baller status. she really wants an sl500 or 550, so I mean...

i meant 06-07 wrx wagon, the old style 2.5L, not the new hatchback. I'd get an 09 if I were to get one of those, just depends on what I like more.

I'd pretty deadset on an awd turbo car.

I believe the issue Fae refers to is the transmission in the WRX of that vintage, but subies are generally reliable.
Aren't MS3's FWD? C30's are FWD fo sho.

Just borrow your Dad's neighbors GTR. Just throw your miata under the cover in his driveway. He will never notice.

Cool subject change Scott. Just play at the dance and be done. I now understand the reason why Dr. Emmett Brown always says, "great Scott"!!
Then again, Id rather drive a Nissan G37x over a Delorean. Delorean's aren't exactly fast...
