I say get what YOU want...  even if its a 99 Integra with a JDM front clip and Spoon tuned b18c5.  Get what you need think makes logical sense.

Its my turn to get the next new car in the family.  My 07 v6 accord is aging with 220k and bought a new platinum Toyota Sequoia and downed half the negotiated sticker....  had to for the kids. 

But the next car is for me and Im thinking used, but new to me, is a Lexus IS-F with the 5 liter V8 RWD.  Its a one of a kind, sleeper M3 killer, commuter, fast, etc. etc.  Im just saying weve done enough and its time to cash in on the promises weve made to ourselves when we were kids wishing for our dream car.

TurboTom has a great video on his on YouTube. And plenty of other folks have sexy vids of theirs on YouTube.

The Lexus RX 400H or 450H is a pretty nice and efficient vehicle too, if youre into mid-size SUVs and hybrids.

I'm done with the whole racing and speed scene although I do miss wrenching on cars every now and then. Btw, bmw recently revealed their concept M8 grand coupe. That thing is sharp O0 :o

$30k for family sedans
$40k for trucks

With this budget, you could get 2 cars. My daily is a 6 speed 08 TL Type S. My garage queen is an s2k.  O0. Only time I drive an auto is my wifes Pilot or a rental car.  8)

I have always wanted one of those tl but I heard a lot of bad things about their transmission.

Since my last vehicle was totaled I have been looking at some options. I have nail it down to 3 cars. The 2018 Honda accord or a new Toyota Tacoma, or a suv crossover. I am not to thrill at the hp of these new crossover, or the amount of trunk space in them. Seems to me full size family sedan has a bigger cargo space then these types of cars do :P
i recently bought a honda element. AWD. it's amazing. i post pictures in here but i forgot how to do so.

Nice. What year is it? Post up pictures. I was looking at the Honda Ridgeline also. Although the idea is great and a very versatile vehicle, I can't see myself in it.

I can't wait for Toyota's FT-AC to come over. I've had my Corolla for 12 years now and would not mind trading it in for the FT-AC  Crossovers are the hottest things right now.

Yep, regarding "YOU" as "YOU" know your own situation better than others especially online folks like on PH...

Also agree that you should reward yourself in life too with a "dream car" or what ever...as it's meant to be lived..
