This is going to be my first car, and yes I have a job. I was considering in getting a Genesis Coupe or an Altima Coupe, and probably just fix up the Altima Coupe a little.

But I was wondering, what else do you guys prefer to get thats under 23k? Cause I'm not entirely sure, and I don't want to fuck up on my first car haha. smokeyface

I don't want a little ricer car, like a civic or anything just sayin lol.

Gen coupe turbo is the best choice. New car, okay performance but with a lot of potential, and good looks

I look how you wanna look, I fuck like you wanna fuck, I am smart, capable and most importantly, I am free in all the ways you are not.

Buy an e30 for 4 grand. Spend 8 on it.

You'll have enough to do it twice.

Good luck finding one in good condition that hasn't been beat to shit then put back to stock just to be sold...

These are growing on me slowly especially with a nice set of wheels...

No. Unless you don't plan to DD i would not recommend one. FC's are just shitty and although FD's are nice they all suffer heavy maintenance and not only that you need to often take it to a trusted and knowledgable shop or mechanic unless you know what your doing yourself.

Considering its your first car i would play it safe and get something that is certified pre owned. I wouldn't suggest dumping thousands of dollars into a first car and restoring/building it up. Find something that fits you and go from there, otherwise your just going to regret your decision...

For the record, the turbo Gen is the cheapest engine option. Do yourself a favour and grab something that's deadbeat reliable. The last thing you want in a first car is something you're going to fix more than enjoy.

its actually the cheapest version. a friend of mine leased his for 3k down at 289 a month. If its your first car, just lease it and, with your job, you will save a lot of money.

my first car and the car im currently driving is a acura TL, and it's 100% satisfying. you can get a 2007-2008 for around 23k. I don't know about reliability and all but so far there's a shit ton of mileage on my car 250000+ kms (lol canada) but ive encountered no problems at all after a year of driving it. although there might be some better cars, a tl is something you might want to look into

could pick up a speed3, or a WRX. Wouldn't be interested in a STI or Evo in your price range. An s2000, e36 M3, options are endless. Be more specific.

Easy mang...

And I'm looking for a 4 seater. A car that'll last, and of course look tight to roll in haha, and be fun to drive haha. I was kinda aiming at those nice luxury cars, thats why I kinda listed those 2 on the top. But I'd like some suggestions though smokeyface

I know for around 20 grand you could get an e46 m3, or a gs300, You have a lot of options. How much are you looking to spend on insurance each month?

Never lease a car. Especially for one that costs under 23k.
In the end you don't even own it, plus if you break the conditions in your contract (often hidden) you have to pay premiums.

Premiums on a car that you don't really own.

U could always get a cadillac if u are in to those. U could probably find an 06 or 07 with sport package cts for 23k with pretty low mileage. or u could get one without the sport option and it would be a few k cheaper. thats what I did I got an 06 non sport for under 20
