+1 on the is250/350 fits what she needs perfectly. Only draw back is there are too many of them on the road. I would personally opt for the a3 on that last because they are sex.

tell her to pick up a 2009 Mitsu Eclipse Spyder with the V6...
sexy car, the right color will make it look professional and she'll have every guy she wants with a car like that

i said '09 because the 2010 are no longer offered in manual...

if she doesnt like convertibles, get the coupe.

best looking car out there !

What about the CR-Z. You could save a huge chunk of money and i think it would look great with upgraded wheels and Honda 6MT(!).

I actually really like the CR-Z. Can't wait to see it when it comes out.



In other news, I woke up to a text message that said "What about an E46 M3?"

You guys are crazy suggesting the TSX...my sister had one and I hated that car. I don't like that light feathery shifter and the car is slower than balls.

She's crazy not to consider BMW. I test drove the G37, IS350, they don't even come close to the 335i.

lmao,

from most preferred to least
or hatches: Mini, A3, GTI, Volvo c30,Mazda3, WRX
for coupes: Infinti G's, TT, 370z, S2k
sedans: A4, GLI

but since you said your sis had bad experience with VW, and looking at her tastes for SI's..I think A3/c30/mazda3 may be best with her tastes(yup i like volvo's too)

08 TL Type-S, it comes with sticks (just hard to find one) and it drives pretty damn good for both high way and corners. The sticks even comes with LSD. TSX is way too soft inside and out.

Yes I am more or less biased.

To each his/her own, but Honda makes the best shifters in the industry--no contest.

Dude, you're crazy... honda's have the best 6MT bar none...
The TSX is not slow.. 210 Hp 0-60 in 6 seconds... it is a very balanced light car and very much fun to drive.. reminds me of my old prelude
You can have it with a V6 now if all you care about is straight line speed, but the 4 cyl is way more balanced
