$45k imaginary dollars


TS John

Recommended Posts

Alright, folks, here's the deal.

 

You have $45k imaginary dollars to spend on a brand new 2008 model. All options must be factored in and you can't choose anything not offered at the dealership. Nothing like, "I'd get this and then modify the hell out of it with the remaining $X..." since we've had threads like that in the past and I'm kind of curious what people'd choose if they weren't playing the modification game.

 

Post up the pictures and the lists of options that the websites spit out at you. If you want to post or link to some specs or videos that's cool too.

 

I'll start off by copying over my example:

Well I think I'd take the money and throw it in the hedge fund so that I'd have enough for a GT-R...lol.

But since it's limited to 2008 models with a cap of $45k...I'd go Sup's route. Except looking like this:

^^ Base price for an elise S is 46,000 but I think the regular elise is around 43,000.

 

I only say this because my choice would be the same, but a little over......of course I'd much rather a Exige S 240, but that's way over 45k.

6 speen manual w/ all the goodies

Isn't the 08 a G37?

it is more then 45k, but this is the only car I think I would ever spend more then 5k on. I enjoy driving new to me cars too much to bother buying something new. the depreciation hit when I want to sell/trade after 9 months is too much to take.

When I had my prelude I encountered one of these on a Columbus expressway. Never in my life have I enjoyed being spanked, repeatedly, as much as this 5 minute encounter doing several 45-120 rolls.

its something about the rear side windows on the exige, that i dont like. the comparison of them both are near same, but thats just me.. other reason why i like it, is that its light as a crx.. and its damn sexy.
