    I am wanting to get a new car, so I need some help deciding.

    Here are my choices narrowed down. My budget is no more then $20,000.

    2006 Nissan 350z, 32k miles, black on black. $16,900

    2004 Escalade, 60k miles, pearl white with tan leather. $17,500

    2005 Infiniti g35 57k miles, white with tan leather. $14,200

    Those are what I have found so far that interest me ^, here are other cars i am interested in.

    Acura TL type S
    Audi A4
    Nissan Armada
    BMW 2005 +

    Out of those cars, what would you go with and why?

    350z = garbage

    escalade = garbage > too many big plastic dumb buttons... i drove one on 22's from sac to la and back, worst time ever ;x

    infiniti g35 = not a bad choice

    Acura TL type S = yummmm ;) i drive an acura myself ;D

    Audi / nissan = eh... audi is ok, nissan blah

    bmw... cant go wrong there...

    make it short acura, bmw, or infiniti

    The 350z will leave stains in your undies, ive driven a few and they rock, the Infiniti (we call it the skyline here) is the same as the 350z with a different body - so it depends what you like the look of. Audis are nice, you cant go wrong with an A4 (i have one now). The Escalade (IMO) looks like a posers car id never drive one. same for the nissan, i just hate that type of vehicle.
    Beemers are generally sweet but they have gone down hill latley, many BM drivers have swithched to Audi, What BM u lookin at?

    if it was on 22s then no wonder, why do people put stupid wheels on cars? i know you have to look "cool" and all but aint it more important to get round corners? and the 350 rocks, totally. dunno what you mean about plastic buttons but the uk version is very nice.. nicer than the skyline (infiniti).its lighter and goes round the corners better imo, and looks better. on the down side the 350 is quite common - but not as common as an audi a4

    Isn't infiniti made by Nissan?
    Not sure they all seem to be good choices go me, but I would have to agree the BMW or Infiniti are great choices. I just got a new 2010 Camaro and love it. But based on past performance some would say GM suks. Drive em and do a little research on em. Google em, google knows all and go with your gut. No matter what you go with someone will say the one you passed was better.

    Yeah, 350z just depends I guess. My friend has one that is pretty bad ass.

    The Skyline is a really bad ass car. Wish I can get my hands on the new gtr one that was just released here. Runs about $100,000 here.

    In my mind old school would be some 15's or 16's with 50 series craiger tires. That is old school or at least what is on the older muscle cars. I agree I really don't like the huge rims esp when you have to buy new tires. They look good on certain cars but not for all cars.

    Some of the Dodge and GM dealers are going to be going aout of business. Chrystler is closing like 1200 dealerships and GM like over 2000 dealerships over the next year. I saw on the news some dealers are offering cars at their envoice or even below invoice just to move em out before they close.

    Go the 350 or GTS IMO

    I have a 350 and an STI and I reckon the STI is more fun, but the 350 has more low down torque...

    Each to their own I guess :)

    :D damn it man, ill put my 17s on and race you with 22s and you will be a dot in my mirror, lol :p;) yano i think its a cultural thing, Americans like to have there cars setup for the long straight roads you have over there, Europeans like to have there cars set up for all the twisties we have.. its all good but i still think you will look like puff daddy with 22s :D:p

    stepmum has a 350z silver its pretty slick, my dad has a hummer - i would have either

    since i got the expanded family have been looking at the armada but the infiniti equivalent has a lot more toys/gadgets

    sensibly though cos of the family the next vehicle addition will probably be a minivan! lol

    im partial to getting a bmw/audi for myself for summer my buddy just got a 5series and its a nice car another just got an audi conv all good stuff

    PS i used to have a 1969 mini cooper that i used to drive around san antonio texas that had a full union jack wrap till someone trashed it! now its cut in two and projecting out of an interior wall inside my friends british bar! lol

    I would get a g35... fun like a 350z.. and has backseats that only attractive girls can fit in when you pick up some "ladies" at the club to go back to your house ;)


    Otherwise mercedes bmw or jaguar :) class always speaks... I bought a jag recently for 16k and everyone thinks i drive a 40k car, its funny :)

    Just remember if you buy a bigger car or suv your girl will be encouraged to want to bring her out of shape friends... "did i say that out loud" :eek:
