we as u know, i posted a thread a month ago asking what u think about the acura 3.2 cl type-s. i heard good and bad things. and well the bad news is that this is their last year so i have minimal cars to choose from, and i dont wanna pick something that im not completely satisfied with. i am a 2dr guy, and that plays a huge role in my next car. so then i thought about the honda accord, 2003. its ok, not a fan of how it looks, but i might consider.

so then i stumbled across something that i might be able to afford. a 2003 or 2004 bmw 325ci. what do u guys think about those. its in my price range, and i love 3dr bmw's. i wish i can have the m3 like everyone else here probably, but thats like 15 more grand for that. im just throwing my options out, and wondering what everyone thinks of the 325ci.

Infiniti G35 Coupe!!!

Although the 325ci is nice, it's nowhere near as spacious or as quick as the G35...

i know, but thats a little small for me. plus i dont have over 40 grand right now. 2 guys at work, one has a brand new 350z and right next to that is this other guys g35 coupe. same color for both of them. i love the g35, but cant afford it.

I just read the Car and Driver review of the BMW 325ci and it was pretty bad. A test drive will many times override anything you read, but those guys tend to get a boner from any BMW/Benz. Did you think of the Altima with the 3.5 or Maxima at all? My buddy got his in and it rocks, I usually don't ever say that about anything foreign but I am very impressed with Nissan nowadays. I know you said the 2 door thing, but the Altima would give you more power and a lower price.

wow, i can't believe they aren't going to make the CL type S anymore. How about an Acura TSX. It may be a 4-door, but it is still wicked nice. You're growing up man, you'll get used to the 4-doors eventually.

4dr 4dr 4dr 4dr 4dr.....i hate 4drrrrrrr. there are very limited 2drs out there for me in a reasonable price range.

I agree with you man, i wish somebody would compile a short list of sporty, affordable, powerful, good looking 2 doors. Everything is just turning into 4 door madness.

I saw the G35 commercial today saying it lists at around $31,000. Isn't that cheaper than the BMW 325ci you mentioned? I may be wrong as I never check prices on German cars.

thats about the same minue taxes and interest. i cant see the g35 being that much though. maybe its a base model or something.

you can get a 350 z for cheaper than g35.. you just won't have back seats etc.

350z=too small for me. i want something that has side windows larger then my rear view mirror. lol
