need your help on my nex car decision...
...not anytime soon..probably after the chruch wedding...but i'm stuck on 3 cars:

350Z-
used Mr-2 to plan 2zz swap
go for more refined...IS300

obviously the mr-2 is the cheaper route...i love the power in the Z but 3200lbs. is not as much fun to toss around than the 2200lbs. spyder.

the IS300 is a wild card because i'm thinking about the practicalities of a 4 door especially married life...plus it's a bit sporty when modified...


the wallet says mr-2...the heart says 350Z...the mind says IS300...

let me know what you guys think.

I will have to go with the IS300. This is the perfect car for you IMO. Not too childish but you can still have fun with it.

I'd go with the IS300. After driving one myself, they're a nice car right off the lot, and they have great potential in the aftermarket. So you can have a 600+ hp IS300 with a baby seat in the back and groceries in the trunk.

IS300 thumbsup

MR2 is still pretty cool though.

I'd avoid the Z no matter what, due to all the problems with it.

Hey, just because you're getting married doesn't mean you have to have a 4-door. I've been married to my current wife for 6 years and just got a Celica last year. We also have a 4 year old. My previous car was also a 2-door.

Depending on the situation i would pick as follows:
--If its going to be the only car in the family then IS300.
--If there is another vehicle i would go for a G5 rather than the Z (to many problems)
--Then MR2...i thinks its not father like...hahaha IDK wat im saying...but i would pick a G...something with class combined w/sportiness...BMW M5 thumbsup
