    There are actually four...they are all beautiful cars...

    1) Bmw 325/330Ci - like the brand a lot
    2) Infiniti G35 - runs fast, skyline
    3) C230 Sport Sedan - good price for me to lease
    4) Scion tC - damn cheap for me to own

    I'm here in the states for school, not sure whether i would go back to my country after 3 years if graduated from university. Lease or own, still be in 36 months...need some opinion....been thinking a long ass time.

    i think leasing while in college is a good way to go. since you don't own the car, you won't be that anal about it and you won't be paranoid about parking it on the street or washing it all the time.

    330 Ci or G35. you definitely have more options if you want to mod with the G35

    C230K's are slow, Get the 330, or leave the toys behind and go for an M3!

    Bandwagon for a reason, they are better than G35's.

    TL is good...built-in bluetooth...
    most likely i'll get a C230 Sport Sedan....but need to test drive once first....
    A4...i kinda like it too...but my friend has already got one...so maybe not...

    S4 would be GREAT...or M3....but too much on monthly

    You dont want a C230. Its the shittiest Mercedez around, nevermind having a slow as fuck car. My friend has a C320 and i hate that thing.

    What about a 3 series sedan if you can't deal with insurance on the coupe? The C230K isn't a BAD car, but it's slowwwwwwwwwww

    I'm gonna go against the grain here. I'll recommend the tC. If you're still in school and have the money to afford any of those other cars, then I'd say take the tC and use the left over money to do alot of crazy shit. Think about what a kid in school with a couple hundred extra a month can do with it.

    If not, I'd say go with the 330ci.
