Re: Best Headturner for under 40k

Holy crap do I love my car!!! I live in Toronto and the G coupe in my mind was as much a head turner as I could get as a daily driver and something that would face some Canadian winters. It's no Dinan S3, but I am really glad I made this purchase, thanks again everyone.

Re: Best Headturner for under 40k

get the nsx!!!

even after owning the car, i can't help just look at it everytime after i parked it on the street. i have to look at it when i put it in the garage. i can just sit down and admire it all the day long.

this car really opened up my eyes, sure the on paper it doesn't handle that good. but its all about the feel, and feedback of the car. you can give a car more grip with tires, you can make the car handle better by lowering it and adding stiffer suspension. but it will be very very difficult to change the way the car feels in a corner because that is more of a thing thats been engineered into the geometry and such.

the nsx handles waaay better than my 240sx and it rides super smooth. the 240sx has full suspension and sway bars, but it rides soo harsh and still doesn't hold a candle compared to the nsx.

the nsx is a car that will practically run forever as long as you do your maintance, the chassis will new rust, the body will never rust. mine has 88K miles on it and it doesn't have a squeek or rattle.

edit: doh, i see that you've already made your purchase. i still love the G coupe. the only problem is that its too common for me =)

And about turning heads, I like the idea with a sport bike
The IS350 is a V6 not an inline 6. Also, for fully loaded you're talking about EVERYTHING. You can get a well equipped one for around $40k.

ahh i see that the threadstarter bought his car, good stuff! Although, the G coupe is pending a remodel soon and i would have probably waited for that, or just paid out more for the BMW 335i.. but good buy nonetheless!
