    hey guys,
    i usually only post in the cage, but recently i have really been thinking about what my next car is going to be.
    I have narrowed it down to one of three things :

    early 90's NSX
    s 2000
    Or a 350 Z

    Im not asking for info about them, i already know that :h5:
    Just want to hear your guys' opinions and why. Pros/cons of each car.
    I do not plan on leaving it stock.
    Thanks.

    wow i have gone through a few other threads and all you guys do is bicker. I guess cars are very subjective and it really is a matter of opinion. Just like how the nsx is slow by todays standards. I dont care, look at it

    O motherfucking HI-O
    I love the looks of the NSX, and the handling is phenomenal.

    Slow? Wouldn't stay that way for long. ;)

    I like the S2k styling-wise, and I think it'd be fun car to play with. If I owned one, it would see track time on the weekends, and be modded accordingly.

    I'm no fan of the 350Z (styling-wise), but the performance is decent, and the aftermarket picks up where Nissan left off.

    Just my .02 as a car guy. :x:

    What's your budget? I would go with the NSX as long as you can afford one in decent shape. But if you're thinking a 91ish with 100k+ miles, I would lean more towards s2000. I have driven a few 350zs and can not stres enough how unimpressed I was with every one of them.

    Really it depends on what you want to do with it I would say.

    Of those... S2000 for sure. The 350z really does not do anything for me. The interior of me Mustang GT was more impressive to me.

    yea did a little research. Although you CAN find and NSX with low k's for around 28K they are few and far between. Im leaning more towards the s2000, and its funny cause people either love the 350 or hate it.

    I don't know that I love it or hate it. If I was a bit younger (>21) I would think it's a cool car. I put it in the same category as the Mustang GT/Z28/TA.

    If you're gonna daily drive it over fuct up roads or on long highway journeys, the 350Z might fit the bill.

    Otherwise, NSX if you can afford to fix it if it needs work, and S2K if not

    I also found the 350Z and G35 to be very boring to drive. Nice to take through some corners, but when you're not doing that, you'd rather be sitting in a different vehicle, IMO

    We need a bit more information like what you want to do with it.. Daily driver? Weekend car? Track car? Do you have another vehicle to drive if it breaks down? Can you afford costly repair bills on the NSX? Are you really tall? (6'2" here and I can't even sit in an S2K)?

    What I would personally do is opposite of what I would recommend.

    Me:

    Nsx
    s2k
    350z

    Recommend:
    350z - the most practical and easy to own
    S2k - still recent
    NSX - impractical, but one hell of a ride
