    Help With A New Car

    Post  Alex0827a on Thu May 09, 2013 10:49 pm

    So I'm starting to shop around for a new car... It'll probably be a couple years til I'm out of college and can actually get it, but I'm thinking something under 25k. What I have so far:

    1. Hyundai Veloster Turbo
    2. Subaru BRZ
    3. Chevy Camaro LS (though with my options list it's 35k)
    4. Dodge Dart Rallye

    I want something sporty that looks good and is still fun to drive. The Veloster gets the #1 spot, as it does both and still gets 35 mpg. The Camaro's got the best performance no doubt, but the stuff that adds an extra 10k onto the price comes standard in the Veloster (premium sound system, remote start, decent looking wheels, body kit, etc etc.)

    The Veloster is right up with the BRZ in performance if I get the turbo, and still cheaper, plus cheaper on insurance and more functional. The Dart is sorta... meh. Thought about a Lancer GT, but they're too heavy for the power. The Volvo C30 comes to mind, but again, options send it to about 30k.

    Idk, any recommendations/thoughts?

    If you were rich I would recommend the Rolls Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe. But your not rich. I don't know. I'm a GM man, so I would recommend the Camaro, but whatever'll save you cash is good too.

    PS: Who needs a Car when you could drive around in one of these:

    If I had a few million to blow, I'd get a 1930s Phantom Coupe -

    But if I get to the point where I have 1k/month to spare, I'm buying a low-mileage Ferrari 360 Spyder and modding it, and I won't actually drive it but like 6 months out of the year Razz

    Fuck that! Go for the Aston Martin DBS V12. What's special about it? It was James Bond's car in Quantum of Solace!

    I gotta say, If those are your options you gotta go for the Camaro man, if nothing else but to avoid looking like a bitch when your driving around xD
    Won't see me in a Hyundai!
    You will see me in a 4x4 Isuzu lol

    Stop right there. Let me correct you. There is no such thing as a Ford Mustang. There is such thing as a Fucked over Rebuilt Dodge Shitstang!

    Remember that.

    One of my friends actually built a 1969 Chevy Yenko Camaro Clone.

    This Pic was taken from the Dragway out U.S. 41 here in Indiana:

    I'm not exactly a big Dodge Fan. Although I've always wanted a '70 Plymouth Roadrunner.
