In all honesty, for 10k your really cant beat a 2GB GSX as far as looks, power potential, and enjoyment. AWD makes them safe in bad weather. If all I had was 10k, that is what I would buy. Now, since that isnt what you want/cant get, my second choice would be a 98-01 Subaru Impreza 2.5RS Coupe/sedan. You either love them or hate them as far as looks go but it is definitely the most overlooked car out there. Ill give you a hint, Subaru engines are like legos in the sense that most of them are fairly easily swapped. Oh and they weigh about 2800 lbs which is impressive for an AWD car. It was actually going to my project car but I decided on something else because I had the extra money.

My preference would be either:
2000+ BMW 3 series (many, many different options here, i would be fine with any)
1989 CRX with b16A (n/A or turbo?)

Depends what you want to do with the car, ie. mod it, keep it stock for a nice daily driver etc.

LS1 and LT1 are the camaros and firebirds. My best friend is selling a black LS1, 6 speed, T-Tops for 8500-9000. Can't go wrong if you like rwd and lots of torque. -Matt :thumb:

wow i was just in ebay and i saw a 2000 bmw 3 series sell for $10100 and it only had 65k. how cool would it be to own a bmw at 19 years old. i think i will end up getting a 3 series. looks like the best choice so far. unless anyone knows of something better?

None of those cars are in the 25k range, but if I ignore that, then definitely the Evo, maybe the C5. Its very hard to find a good used Evo for less than 25k with tax and all included.

Get the vett. You are on a car modding site and I figure that sooner or later you will probable wantto mod whatever you get. And with the modded C5 you will be able to put the DSM to shame. :D At least, all my friends with modded V8s can trash my car in the 1/4 mile. It's amazing what you can do with an engine that has twice as many pistons.

Don't spread mis-information. The "new Vette" you speak of is a 2006 Z06 and it has 505 horsepower, runs 11.7 in the quarter and tops out at 198 mph. Damn, damn fast, but not the fastest production car.
