advice for my 2nd car

i currently own a 2004 g35 intercooled turbo. i can hit the 1/4 mile in 13.1 and i have finally gathered up enough cash to buy a new car. my budget is 32k and i want a new car, but i will except ideas on used. i am kind of looking for something different than the g37 considering i already have the g35. right now i am looking at a few models: 350z enthusiast, impreza wrx premium, and a mustang gt coupe premium. ALSO I NEED AN AUTOMATIC!!! i have not drivin many sticks and i dont feel i am ready for one!

Your not good at stick, but you have a turbo G35 with probably about 450+ whp? And you can only cut a 13.1? Right.....

So why do you want a new car, I would work on getting that time down first by spending a little more time in your current car

yeah i dont see whats wrong with your old one. Ooh there's an idea i convince you to keep your car and you send me 32K!!

Not sure why a stick is bad when you cut a 13.1 in a turbo G35? What is wrong with that?

Ill trade you cars and you can spend 10k to have an automatic fabricated in to the car :D

get a manual, it opens up your options to anything.

it sounds like you want a drag type car, how bout an 03ish z06. 405hp, great gearing, decent handling(shit compared to the new z06), great tq, i think there's atx versions, and overall a nice car(and i don't like vettes) more!!! Viper(used) the older one's are selling for low 20's, and nothing beats the sound of it's v10 at full song, only a 6spd though

Z06's are 6-speed manuals only.

Automatic gets boring.. ugh. I'm so tired of slush boxes. I don't care if it can shift faster than I can... it doesn't know how to have fun. I'd much rather drive a 5-speed Mazda Miata than an Automatic Corvette... or in my case an Automatic 6-speed Pontiac G8 GT.

Death to the slushybox!

only a 6spd though

When did that become a bad thing?

for 32k get a SRT8 charger or 300c. 425hp big pimpin and automatic. or look into a challenger, i think they're like almost 40K tho

it's not a bad thing, i only have 5spds. i'm saying if the guy only wants an a/t then a 6spd is bad for him

check out the 6cyl challenger, around 30g, will have an automatic and around 250hp. or an automatic 6cyl camaro, around 300hp
