Hopefully this'll end the "What would be a good 1st or 2nd car" madness. Probly work better if someone *cough*sideways*cough* sticky this *hint*hint*nudge*nudge*. wink2.gif Anyways if you want to know what would be a good first, backup, or project car ASK HERE with what your plans are for the car (age and finacial situation would help too in the case of a 1st car deal).

Top 3 FF:

1.

3.

Top 3 FR:

2.
3.

Top 3 MR:

1.

Cars change every year, and these categories are way too generic... specific threads are much better because everyone has different interests.

Otherwise I think most of our choices will end up being Ferraris and Porsches in sportscars, and Bentleys and Rolls Royces in comfort. Or do we just exclude comfort?

ayako, that is a great idea, but you are missing one, 4WD. Can a mod please merge all the "good car" threads to this one? and maybe pin it.

Before you ask your stupid questions you should give us the fallowing details..
1)Your budget, keeping in mind that just because you have the money to purchase the car doesn't necessarily mean you can to afford it. This includes regular maintenance, keeping gas in it and insurance which is a nice luxury incase god for bid you didn't watch enough initial D and you drifted your shitty car into a tree in some park.
2)What are your interests and plans for the vehicle? Do you want to start autox'ing? drag racing? drifting? Or do you just want to buy an overrated car for too much money because of a cartoon, movie, magazines or biased interweb video's? Will it be a dolled up street car.
3)What are it's practical requirements? Will it be a daily driver? Do you live in a place where it snows a lot? Will you be able to afford to repair things that go out with out interfering with your daily routine? Do you need to have room to hall people/stuff or even tow something now and then?


It would be advised that you should be open minded. Many say they want a front engine RWD car because they handle better then a typical front engined FWD vehicle which in theory can is true but each platform is so different that its really something that should be over glorified. There are many great handling affordable FWD cars!

Also, be willing to do alot of research for what ever car your interested before you are dead set on it. And I mean search up more things then what rims look best on the car and what ricer drift style body kits and conventions they have it. I mean find out what kind of common problems and issues they have. (IDW is not that great of a resource btw. Go to a msg board thats dedicated to the car your interested in. Also I recommend automotiveforums.com just because one registration gives you the ability to ask questions and discuss many different cars.

Another Subaru message board link, for the uber-est of Subarus--the first-gen Legacy!

http://bbs.legacycentral.org

(There's absolutely everything in that forum... the members have done everything under the sun, and if you ever need to know something, it's there. It's what makes modifying my car so damn easy!)

1. rs25.com
2. if you are in Canada, specifically Toronto, Ontario - join www.toronto-subaru-club.com

Top Gear's Power Lap Times::http://www.bbc.co.uk/topgear/powerlaps/

Gotta love the show, and jeremy clarkson. Yes, the price range varies, but it is a good comparison of the cars, run on the same track.

More Subaru Boards.

http://www.rs25.com
http://bbs.scoobynet.co.uk/

No particaular order, but here are some of my prime choices.

MR:
Lotus Elise
Carrera GT

FR:
AE86
RX-7 (FC/FD)

AWD:
EVO (V)
STi v5/6(22B)
Skyline (R34)

Maybe we should do it like a poll, and tally up everyones top 3 choices.

heh so...... is anyone gonna start the first X car?

If no one minds then I will go first

But what about currency wat u guys gona do when other ppl other than can or US

I got 2,157.60 USD to spend........ on an S13.......... to drive around and maybe the odd insticnt to attack a corner.... something that i can have fun drifting in the rain cause i dont wanna spend too much in tire damage. The begginers car? Damn straight!

I dont even know if want to spend this money on a car, or my collage/university funds biggrin.gif

Souce: http://www.refcofx.com/currency-trading.ht...rency+converter

EDIT: If you really want to know all i want is a drift spention setup(nothing wrong with keeping on ur toes on a rainy day huh?). And the odd bits and peices like nice gearknob(not those stupid ricy lightemup ones) pedeals to do heal toe and maybe a kit which makes shifting to each gear quicker (shortens the distance each throw of the knob)

2nd EDIT: na, ok forget it now, i think im gonna spend it on my collage degree biggrin.gif

If you have 2k to spend, get something like a CRX, miata, or a EF civic. I dont think you can buy a problem free s13 at that price.

First-gen Subaru Legacy! Just not a turbo edition, 'cause you'd be spending more getting it in proper working condition than you would if you just went with an NA. The turbos are kinda finicky.

My belief is that a 15 year old turbo can't possible be that great, especially considering that the turbine has to spin much much faster than the engine.

It isn't, really. It's a small turbo that causes lots of problems. Most people with Sport Sedans (who actually care about performance) get newer turbos.

...but that's why I'm saying not to get a turbo model. They're more trouble than they're worth... so if you're not willing to spend more on getting the engine running well than you are on the car, don't get one. It's also why my major engine upgrade is a 2.5L NA swap rather than a turbo swap. I can get the same power out of a newer EJ25 than I can get from the EJ22T... with less of the complications and hassle.

...but don't most turbos spin faster than the engine they're attached to?

Can it be used? If so, you can EASILY get a wrx for under 20k... 3000GT VR4 too. You can score a 300ZX TT for under 20k also. There are ALOT of options.
