"car owner to be", needs suggestions.

"Ok, im sorry for posting another one of these threads…"

I am looking forward into buying a used car of my own, I want to spend between 7-11 g's alone on the car and build on it then (ie. Body kits, exhaust, just for looks "RICER" lol). Im not planning to race or anything like that so please don’t tell me to buy a engine, on the other hand, I wouldn't mind having a lil power. I want an automatic sports car with plenty of room to fit 5, I don’t want a cramp car where I could barely fit 4. I want something stylish but simple, and again, must have a sporty touch to it. Please feel free to leave any suggestions.

In that case, I'll move this to the 'General chat' board, It's better suited there!

look here
for a camry look here

I believe these to be the best 5 seaters in your price range in 2000-2004MY

On a side note, i must mention that my dad and i managed to get a '99 camry (i-4) for 7.5k USD, so put your negotiating skills to the test and try for the best deal.

EDIT: Also check out the following:-

Mazda Millenia here
Nissan Maxima here this has to be the sportiest of the ones i mentioned with a nice engine.

Hope that helps

The accord is pretty sweet! That’s if I had a wife and 3 kids lol! Im looking for a more sportier car. Keep in mind, it dosnt have to be a 4 door, jus aslong it has plenty of room in the back. The camry, uhhhh…. id rather go for the accord. So the camry is off the list. The mazda, I don’t know what to say.. That car would be great for me if I was 50 years old. It looks like a car for the "OLD". The maxima is my pick, but its at the peak of my price range, I would still prefer the accord.

All these cars need to be a lil more sportier…

~btw, thx for your suggestions!

well i mentioned those b/c you stated you want a 5 seater...

next of all, you need to define what you consider "sporty" (coupe or sedan, v6 or i-4, etc)

finally, the accord also comes in a coupe version with the v6, if that is sporty enough for you. the maxima is the sportiest sedan that can seat 5, pack a punch with a v6, and come in a recent model within your price range.

if you are willing to get smaller cars, then say so.
