For me when buying a car I was looking at 3 things:
-Has to be manual transmission (No lexus or mercedes)
-Has to be 2 door (Acura was out)
-Has to have a nice interior (NO mustangs,cameros)
Plus it needs to be sporty, for me it was a no brainer. I havent owned my car long enough to say one way or another and I have already decided I will only own my car for a max of 3 years and afterwards change it up again.
