    hey fellas ive decided its time to get a new car i want something fairly late model (2000ish) that i can have a bit of fun in, for approx. $20,000 its gonna be my daily so i want it to be fairly reliable. im gonna be doing about 80 km a day half is twisty stuff and half is bumper to bumper traffic so i want it to be nice inside. heres my options

    fd - ive always wanted one and this is what i want the most, only problem is i dont think theyre very reliable plus there not good on fuel

    s15 - light, quick, reliable, everyone ive talked to has said this is my best option

    r34 gt-t - i like the idea of this but dunno how theyd handle

    jzx100 - dunno how these would do through the twistys but they do look pimpin

    so basically im just wanting any ideas on what youd choose, plus if youve ever owned one of these let me know how they went. any other cars i havent thought of let me know

    thanks

    I'd have to say the S15 would be my pick of that bunch, great nimble cars, but are done to death, they're everywhere.
    I had a company car that was an RX8 and it was great, power nice, but reliability is up to the dogs, shame.
    The resale on the R34 would be shit house too.

    i had a look at the rx8 and thought if im gonna have the reliability of a rotor i may as well get one with a couple of turbos in an fd
    i agree with you 100% about the s15 , the only reason im hesatating about getting one is because too many fagboys own them

    70XIN had his chaser up for sale for 17k I think. Chaser would be my pick, 4 doors and slap a Camry badge on it and the cops will not look twice

    unless they are both visually completely stock (height and rims) then cops will look at them
