    not really a first. right now i am driving a GMC Envoy but thats too big for me and i kind of want to get into the import scene, and i still owe my dad money for it so If i give it to him he gives me 8k back. the reason i said that a civic is overrated is cuz every1 got one these days. they are an ok car so i will consider it but i want to see if i have more options. I was thinkin maybe a GTI :) lol but not too sure

    with a budget of 7-8K, my only advice is to stay away from anything fwd.
    (im assuming you want to mod the car to make it into a more performance oriented car)

    why don;t you go check out some imports, and just go based on what you like. then do some research and figure out which car has the numbers and specs you want. i love my prelude!

    MR2 if you dont live anywhere with weather. If not - then go with an AWD DSM. GTI's are nice yes, but it'll have to be an older one to get it into that price range and in my opinion - they loose their appeal the older they are..

    what are you looking to do with the car? if you're looking to modify it, what for? (show, race - road, auto x, drag, etc)

    if you're just looking for a good daily driver, what features would you want/not want, what kind of styling, etc etc.

    :rofl: :slap:


    B13 Sentra is a great car with tons of modding choices. Or grab a Rabbit GTI and drop in a 1.8t.
