Boring family wagon, bought a house instead of keeping the evo. Next car is gonna be a graduation present to myself for going back to college at almost 30; C5/6Z, SW20 MR2, or a JZX90.

So the wife and I have been debating our next car purchase. We currently drive a 2013 V6 accord coupe and a 2013 genesis 2.0t coupe. We would like to turn these cars into something new without some ungodly payment. Anyway here some priorities:

4 door - easy access to baby seat
fun to drive
at least as fast as our current cars
AWD
Manual (insisted by my wife actually, that's what I get for teaching her)
- I think she could be convinced by a decent paddle shifter
Decent warranty

The only cars I know that check all the boxes:
Golf R - not wild about hatchbacks or VW for that matter
Wrx/STI - warranty kinda sux, not wild about subarus either (especially outside of their warranty)

Cars with compromises:
Kia Stinger - Great Warranty, auto only, kinda big
Genesis G70 - Great warranty, Basically the same as our current genesis (good thing), auto (unless 2.0t RWD), pushes the price limit
Maybe an audi
Maybe a Bimmer

What an I missing... new car choices leave me wanting for more.

I've heard great things about the G70, but man the Golf R checks all your boxes and then some. The horrors of lulvwunreliable are gone. I really do recommend driving one.

I almost picked up a new Stinger GT2 but then the Corvette was sitting there. Needless to say the wife wasn’t super thrilled when I came home with it. The excuse that Ibsaved is $20k didn’t fly to well she she is getting a cruise this summer.

I don't know why it's a big deal. Like "Neat." but I don't know enough about space to understand why it's cool.

Indeed, this and every other forum I go to. Pretty sad how forums have just died out because of facebook. I hope that changes one day.

It did, but those are just videos, still doesn't give you the kind of communication that you get from a forum. YT comment sections don't count either.

I miss this place when it used to be busy. I still wear my TST hoodie that I won at the final Spring Meet whenever I am working on my car lol.
