what do you think?

hey guys a friend of mine has a celica GT and he is looking into getting a car and trade or sell his celica (which i do not know why thumbsdown) There are some of the cars he has in mind:

S2000 used
350Z used
SRT-4 used

He is looking for a good looking car with some power turbo is a plus. What car you think he should go for from this list or is there other cars he should think about other then the WRX and the EVO? thank you smile

350z definately.

soft tops don't look good a few years down (unless you garage keep it).

and srt-4s have a lot of 'go' in them and they seem to be reliable so far...but when you break it down, its a neon, looks like a neon, and handles like a neon

You can get a removable hard top for the S2K. And you're right, the SRT-4 is still a neon. If he wants reliable and turbo, he may want to look into an Audi S4, although, even used, it's very pricy. Another option would be waiting for the MazdaSpeed 6 (AWD Turbo Sedan). Every time I see a 350Z, I like it more and more, so it's definately not a bad choice (especially if he gets it in orange).

Well, I agree the 350Z has too many problems (wouldn't go near it myself). So, off the short list, I'd probably go with the S2K.

300,000 KM/Sec. Its not just a good idea, its the law.
