Hey /o/, I usually browse other boards but these last month's I've been interested in the threads that surge here. I've been wondering, I have 9k saved up, I really want to get a good looking car for that price. I would like it to be fast enough but not a super car. I'd be great if it was very reliable. I take good care of my things and my car won't be any different. Some background info, I'm a college student living with family so I don't pay rent, just bills. Please do help me pick something nice.
Everyone loves a Miata anon, except the insecure people who haven't driven one. See if you can find a 1994-1997 MX-5. Don't be turned off by the low horsepower. That's easily fixed with a 9k budget and they're extremely light.
If you're willing to go AWD, a Mazdaspeed6 would be good for that price range. I got mine with 68k on
the body and 35k on the motor for $7500. It's comfy af, decent mileage, quick, and it's easy as fuck to get it up to 500 hp with $2k worth of parts and a good tune
350z or g35 coupe.
literally the perfect cars under $10k.
RX-8? Made from 2003-2012, though I don't know a ton about them. Apparently rotary engines need a fair bit of maintenance but you said you'd take care of your car.
More practical than a Miata.
>finding one for under 10k
>in this day and age
>that hasn't been molested to shit both aesthetically and mechanically by boiracer swaggots
Good luck with that. Maybe he can find a sedan in old-man-green or beige, but he's not finding a V6 coupe in decent shape, not for under 10k.
It's not hard at all. You can get a nice 6 speed 05-06 g35 coupe with 100k miles for 10k. I just bought my 03 6mt (pic related) for 6.3k in august.
Wow that infinity looks very very sexy. Sporty and fancy on black. Like a car wearing a suit with running shoes. Looks great m8
>Can't even come up with a reson for why it looks bad
Here's a recent pic of mine,
>luxury sports coupe
Hahahahaha is this what G35 owners actually believe?
>b-but it says Infiniti
>th-that means l-luxury
Reminder to tell you're insurance company you wanted the practicality of a sedan, which you could technically call an RX-8 since it actually has 4 doors. They'll think you're less of a sportsfag.
a used 3 series would be a better choice, it's far less likely to have been ruined by a boiracer and more likely to have been maintained by qualified technicians
not to mention a proper inline 6, not some choked out horsey sounding piece of shit V6
Most cars I like are all fucked up by wanna be racers who redded the car to shit.
Give the Bimmer E36 a look, OP.
>riced to shit
If you're car has a stigma, who cares because fuck what other people think. But if the previous owner turned it into his "ruin a car" project than it's going to actually effect you.
Why is an RX8 more practical? Also I really doubt you can find an RX8 for under 9k that isn't going to need work put in immediately after. Don't get me wrong, I love rotaries, but probably not for a daily driver. Maybe it could work in CA though, idk.
