I'm thinking i likes the white version better. There's just too many of the blue wrx's around. I live in Subaru land. I think they actually declared Subaru the State Car here in Colorado. lol.

Take $3k and get a Civic that will get 40 mpg, and take the other $3k and put it into one of your other vehicles... your beater should be a beater.

I’m not buying anything for the time being.

I don’t entirely disagree but there is no fun in that.

I vote for a W210 E class, particularly the 2000-2002 years since they got the facelift. if you can find a rust free(not sure where you live) example they will literally run for ever. They are cheap, good on gas, have a V6 or V8, come in RWD & AWD, Wagon or sedan and super comfy to commute in every day. only downside is no manual was ever offered stateside. You might even be able to find an AMG model in that price range as well, Although I may be a tad bias as I currently own two..

I don’t like any of these options and I really just want an old Nissan with an inline six..

Stupid drift tax... I just need to focus on the unicorn...

I really like that. What is it? Not seen one before.

Looks a bit like an old 300zx but I've never seen one in coupe form...

Newer ones yes but not these older ones, rockauto/ebay have a bunch of parts and there's a place called FCPeuro that offers a lifetime warranty on anything they sell.. even wear and tear items and fluids!

I've bought many parts from FCP. Lots of VW/Audi stuff. yeah they are a really good company with that warranty, and they always seemed to have what i needed in stock.
