confused Time for a new car. What to buy?

Hey Fella's.
I currently drive a 3 speed CFI EA Falcon GL. I am thinking of upgrading in a month or two and im wondering what people would suggest I upgrade too.

Budget will be approximately $6000 - $7000.

This will be my only car and as such will be driven daily.
This budget will have to include any modifications I want to do on the car in the near future .... So suggestions of either a car or a car + certain modifications would be great.

I have an ED that I'm selling. I recently bought myself an EB XR8, so I need to sell the ED.

The car is a really nice car to drive, looks great and has 195KW at the flywheel (dyno papers to prove). Has the following mods:

Genie extractors,
High flow cat,
2.5" exhaust system,
Crow cam,
Head has been port polished,
Air Pod,
Allan Moffat Bodykit,
ROH wheels.

I'm asking $6500. If you ask me, the car is a great buy.

Here's the link to the thread on it:

EB fairmont I6 should be around the $4500 mark in good cond. Which will leave the rest for - wheels, lowered suspension, exhaust. Should be good enough as a daily and still turn some heads!

in brissie I just picked up ED XR6 auto with 170 on the clock, perfect condition, for $7600 if that is any indication of the market. I would think you could get a really nice ED for that, you could also get an EF GLi, but personally I think the ED's look tougher!
