Which new car to get?

I'm thinking of getting a new car. My budget is about 30,000. I've narrowed it down to these cars:

new BMW 325Ci
used BMW 330Ci
new 350z
new WRX STI
used Porsche Boxster

Personally, I'd scratch the Boxster. Probably cross the New 325. STi probably. You don't like the EVO?

The STi is the best performer of the bunch, but the style is love/hate.

The Z is ok, again the styling is a little weak. The interior looks puke

Used Porsche is a bad idea, the old Boxster has a ostrage asshole center exhaust. thumbsdown

Beemers = thumbsdown

My suggestion, out of that list would be the STi/Z, whichever you prefer.

If I had that kinda cash, I'd wait a lil longer and pick up the new 2005 Elise.

Have you thought about the the new G35's coming out? They are supposed to be the new skyline in Japan. The 2005 has AWD in the sedan. They are also coming out with a new Evo taht is supposed to be beefed up past the STI. But could all be hear say.

The only two options there I'd take are the new 350z or new 325Ci. It just depends what you're looking for.

I totally forgot the G35. If you had some more extra cash lying around, go get the Stillen G35 Coupe!! Or just the coupe...dashes to 60 in 5.5, while maintaining a "luxurious" and beautiful ride. thumbsup
