Which car should i get......

Hey All,

Its been a long month. After having my pride and joy stolen and not found, Im now on the lookout for another...

Im considering the following cars:

MY03 Impreza WRX

BA XR6T

S15 200 SX

Ive having trouble deciding. Just wondering if anyone has any opions etc or have had these vehicles now or in the past. Any problems etc...


Cheers
Thomas

I dont think you'll get too many objections to the BA XR6T on these forums...

Test drive all of them and see which one you fancy the most... that is usually the best way...

Re: Which car should i get......

bugger off the 200SX, I would be going for the BA XR6T but I may be biased towards Fords, the WRX could be alot of fun too but wouldnt you be opening yourself up to more pain from theft with one of those??

... because you are obviously an authority on 200sx's...

I chose the 200sx because it is the purest drivers car and because I could get a better lease package on it compared to an XR6T. Space was not an issue for me, I don't have a family or loads of shite to cart around.

A near new WRX would be a great option also if you could get past the looks and the culture. You should be able to get a decent maintained novated lease on one of these too.

Take them all for a spin as suggested, do the sums, and decide on your final criteria.

I can say without a doubt that the S15 is the most fun of them all, and yes, I have driven them all on my favourite local piece of road (the Old Pacific Highway).

Re: Which car should i get......

The SR20 motors are extremely strong. They seem to last a long time......

The boxer engine is also a reletively strong motor. A mate of mine works at Subaru a reckons they dont like to be dumped at 5grand too often..

I wonder how he found that out!!

Re: Which car should i get......

Id say the XR6T.

The 200sx is a coupe which can create problems and be annoying with lack of rear seat space and the inconvenience of folding chairs forward etc.

My mate has a WRX and i have found the interior to be rather plasticy. Its an ok car and i goes like the clappers but im not too impressed by them.

Go the XR6T

Re: Which car should i get......

my opinion would be to test drive them all and get a feel for them, but go the XR6 T or 200 SX
