I'm new to the forum, and so far it looks great, I forsee wasting alot of time that I should be working lurking around here.
A little backround, I am looking at replacing my car, I currently have a 2002 Golf GL, it has been awesome, but now I'm looking for something a little bit quicker. I've been looking around at a bunch of things, but I have a few concerns, first of all, I'm a big guy, leg room isn't my problem but headroom is. I at first was leaning towards a Acura RSX Type S, which I believe is a great car, but when I went to test drive one, I was about 4 inches short on head room, tough luck there. The other concern is reliability, as much as I would love to have a project car, I need something that is gonna start every day and be driveable in the winter, I am from Calgary, in Canada, so we do get a good amount of snow in the winter. I have been looking around, pretty open on what I want, I haven't been a big fan of american cars, nothing against them, I just haven't been a fan of the styling.
Any reccomendations on things, the miata thread has inspired me in that way, and I wanted a 3rd gen RX7, but its not practical. Any pointers on cars, I would prefer something on the newer end, sorta late 90s, but would move back for something perfect.
Oh yeah, the budget bit of things, My budget is about 25000 CAD, which is about 20k USD.
Thanks so much in advance,
