I currently own a '00 Accord 5-speed with 180k miles. Pic right beh-low:
This car has treated me exceptionally well, and I plan to drive it for at least another 100k miles as my daily driver. I am a very conservative driver, however I'd like to spice things up a bit and get a car I wont feel as bad hooning around a couple times a week.
My budget is between $20-25K and I'd prefer to get a slightly more expensive/well cared for example. Reliability is less of an issue since I have a perfectly good DD, however I don't want to be having to do costly repairs regularly.
Some ideal cars would be e39 M5, e55 AMG, e46 M3, B6 S4, C5 Z06, LSx Miata, 5.0 Stang... The Germans scare me from a maintenance point of view, and the miata will have a crappy resale value if I ever decide to sell. The Z06 and Stang are fast and cool, but I am not sure if I will want more refinement.
I'm not limited to those cars.
Any further suggestions TCL?
p.s. Hi, I've been a lurker for a while. Gotten a lot of enjoyment from this forum in the past!
