Dude, if you look at the cars this guy is considering, both the IS300
and M3 are probably too small for him. Then again, the S4 isn't much
bigger. If you want a *sporty* car, and will probably blow the doors
off of most if not all the cars mentioned, take a look at the Subaru
WRX at about $25K or for even more performance, the Subaru WRX STI
which starts at about $30k....
Well, if we're open to suggesting other cars, the WRX is definately
near the top of the list. They barely modify them and go out and
well - watch Speed Channel sometime. Rally racing is nothing
short of insanity. 100mph+ down little fire roads.
Other than that, he'd probably have the look for exotics or
something used. I just figured he was looking for something
also useable as a typical family sedan, which makes it harder.
It depends upon his budget.
This is a pretty funny thread... But just wanted to add to the comments
on S4- not sporty enough... Thats just silly! If we are talking about
the new one.. Um. NO. If we are talking about the 2000-2002 model.. Um.
NO. Best thing about the turbo ones, is cheap and easy to modify. Loads
of performance in there....
They are not nearly as long, which is quite distressing. Nor could
they be mistaken for a Hudson at a distance, which might spoil your
plans to attend a classic car meet. I also find that they do not measure
up on the critical "mouse-fur-seat" scale. To add insult to injury,
the makers of these so-called competing vehicles often thrust a "console"
between one and one's bitch, making the successful acquisition of in-
flight oral gratification difficult at best and painful at worst.
Sir, you will search in vain for a foreign company, run by those
stinking Jerries, which can match the reliability, interior quality,
and deft handling of a mid-Nineties uprated Caprice. For proof of
this, I invite you to visit New York City and see which one of those
nancy-boy foreign cars, if any, is doing taxicab duty. While the "E"
does taxi duty overseas, I suspect Europeans rarely vomit in their
cabs, as they typically visit a so-called "vomitorium" immediately
after consuming vast quantities of grapes and young boys, as seen in
the recent infomercial "I, Claudius".
chevy...for a bargin price you can get an old school impala SS with the
corvette engine. it will last you 300k, never break and blow the doors off
the euro cars listed. i have one and its much better than the bmw 540i my
coworker has, smoother, more torque and will throw you back into your seat
like the space shuttle. i owned a mercedes e320 shortly and i was
dissopointed in the performance and quality, i'll go with the impala ss
anyday over that...its a real drivers car.
