Post My top 5 sub $30K cars I like besides my Impreza.

1. 00' Mustang - I like the bold look of the Mustang. Especially the angles on it. Oh yeah...it handles quite well in twists. You just need to learn to control the nature of the beast.

2. Audi A4 Quattro- AWD with plush luxury and a nice stereo stystem as a standard feature. I like the look of this car too.

3. current model Prelude - Refined but has a more muscular shape than the Integra and not overstyled like the Celica or new Eclipse.

4. Mazda Miata - can't go wrong with open top cars. And this one is the best bang for the buck. Handles as good, if not better, than the Impreza.

5. Last but not the least - Integra Type R. What can I say? This car, out of the show room, beats our Impreza RS(equal drivers) in almost every category. Unfortunately, mods won't yeild as many hidden HP and handling like our Imprezas. And in the end, a modded Impreza will beat out a modded Type R.

This is all a matter of opinion, of course. Blame it on the morning caffeine.

You know what sucks about Puerto Rico? None of those cars except the Impreza is lower than 30k's. The Prelude Type SH retails at about $35999, The Miata is like 31k, the Mustang is near the 35k mark and so on. The ITR I think retailed for 35k's too. And I paid 23k for my RS. Sure wish I lived up there. Cheaper cars and better salaries

The Mustang????
The first time I saw the newest car I turned to a buddy of mine and said, 'My only hope is that the guy who designed that got fired'.
Not to mention the rest of the car.

HUMBUG! The Mustang looks nice....to me. Especially the silver ones.

Did you know Snoopy can get rabies? I bite, you know.

Edit - I forgot about the smiley. Some people have a fetish for getting bitten and might take me up on that...those pervs.

top 5 for $30k id take... (in no particular order since i really cant choose, all wouldn't be daily drivers most likely)

2000 BMW 328Ci or used M3 - im sure i could find a hamann turbo kit for it somewhere... hehe (invoice at $30K)

2001 Acura CL Type S - beautiful, plush, powerful, a bargain in comparison to the BMW but not as cool

MKIV Toyota Supra TT - for $30k i could definitely find quite a nice one, and modded can nail anything out there short of a viper

imported Nissan Silvia S15 - cheaper to import than a WRX or an RX-7, granted finding parts will be next to impossible but still

Best 5 cars for under 30K..Are we talking US cash here???

I'd take a:

1. Integra Type R - still one of my favs

2. 97' Impala SS - this thing rocks for such a boat.

3. 95' VR6 Corrado - add some mods and there aren't many that will catch you, if any.

4. 99 Maxima GLE - fast cars, very underated.

5. Ford Focus ZX3 - fun cars, low price, lots of mods available.
