g35 is too much for a first car. get something that does 0-60 above 6 seconds and tune it up as you go along

What are you looking for does it matter new or used? Looks or speed? Luxury or economical? Preferences?

How about something for around 5k? I'm in Louisville, KY, if that matters at all. We get snow and stuff. Yes, I realize I won't have an *awesome* choice of cars, but all well.

Wish I had it instead of my Hyundai Accent. And if you can learn to drive stick you can also save $ if buying new.

you're limits 25k? i'd highly recommend a used mercedes. a c-class would be a great first car. not too fast, really reliable, comes in a coupe, and a much nicer interior than a civic. maintenance is a lot more expensive for mercedes, but they don't break down too often anyway. i also think that german cars drive much nicer than any japanese car that I've driven. I've got an 11 year old mercedes that hasn't even broken down once *knock on wood* and I prefer driving it over my parents new lexus and acura.

If you can't get laid in one of these, then you're a leper. Good mileage too.

With a little bit of haggling you might just be able to buy Genesis with a 3.6L V8 for about 25k.

That's the interior of the current one, not the MkIV R32.

Help me choose my first car
hey guys, I've been thinking about buying a new car for a while now but i don't know what to get.

My budget is 10 grand right now maybe a bit more if I need to. I have no idea about cars but the ones that have made me very interested to get in this forum is The Subaru wrx ( i think thats the name of it lol) and the Infiniti's look really nice to (don't know model names cause i suck at the car game). I don't even know if I can get these cars for the price i want LOL

I just need it to be available to get in Canada and it has to be standard since thats all i know how to drive since I suck. I will be driving this a lot so its gotta be good I guess.

Also, if you have any websites that would help me learn the basics about car shit that would help me a lot.

thanks, guys.

ok. I've merged all the "first car" threads together into one discussion.

State what you are looking for, state your budget, and advise away. smokeyface

dc2s are nice
they last forever.
one downside, it is the most stolen auto in america.
i would consider garaging the car when not in use to prevent theft.
you can find some older ludes 97ish. they run about that much

I wonder how many of these dudes took the time to do some research. I also wonder how many come back to this thread checking if their questions have been answered.
