    I'm actually eyeing the 2003 Acura 3.2CL now, they're around $11,000 for a used one, sounds like my kind of car, I dont need fast (v6 is good enough), I like the classy look, but german cars are just too expensive for me right now

    It basically is a Honda Accord. :)

    Dude you only live once. Buy a RWD 2-seater while you can.

    You can also look into the G35 Coupe. Same engine/engine with different and more practical. But make sure you do your research on the 350Z for their known problems and what to look out for... eg: burning excess oil on rev-up engines.

    Or you can wait a little for the "Rumored" FT86 haha.

    Personally, I'd either get a 350Z, or a Honda S2000. Neither is good on mileage however

    My 350 was surprisingly good on gas. I could get 30mpg if I drove 63, granted that never happened beacuse I was busing doing 102.

    My co-worker found an Audi A6 Standard for 15k with ~47k miles. Basically, the car had been sitting on the lot for an entire year asking for 19k. Guy finally decides to let it go for 15k.

    I wish I could afford a toy like that. I'd be tempted to make you a deal. Right now cash is short.
