    While im awaiting my dream car, im looking for a DD to rag on.

    Sn95s are out. Miatas are out.

    Only because I know what I need to about them already.

    Any other good options?

    Links to good finds would be super appreciated.

    Thanks ahead of time.

    What ind of car you looking for? 2 door? 4 door? AWD? FWD? RWD? Fuel economy? Horsepower? Foreign? Domestic?
    Any car under $1500 isn't very specific at all...

    If I were in your position, I'd get a 5th generation Honda Civic hathback. Fun to mess around in, reliable, and around $1500.

    I already knew my miata and sn95 options so I didnt want anyone to waste their time pulling up one of my own bookmarks.lol.

    The flames are super factory hand painted by d'vinci in the M performance labs during a 6 minute run on the nordschleife.

    Show some F#€/ing respect dude.

    I had a buddy with an older BMW like the one above with 200K miles and it ran just fine.
    Apart from having expensive parts, they're pretty solid and reliable cars.

    Shame on all of you.

    Because a mint e30 m3 will cost a left nut with cash on top. Those are such timeless cars but so damn hard to find.

    I have a buddy with a modded E46 M3 who's waiting to find the proper E30 to trade for.
