Accessories & aftermarket parts

Say you had a chance on ebay motors to pick any car you wanted. If you were looking to buy a car that had an almost endless list of aftermarket parts to customize it but you still didnt want a civic, what would you buy? The reasoni ask is because im trying to land in the middle of that ratio of lots of aftermarket parts : not as shitty as a civic

Advice

Don't buy a car with a turbo in it already. That is just asking for trouble.

Really? Turbo'd vehicles are bad news, huh? Even factory turbos? Good to know ALL cars with a turbo are bad.

i dont know about all vw's, but my friends had corrados and they would consistantly dump a lot of money to repair them.
However if u take of a car, then it should run fine...
