Some help choosing a car please

Im looking for a really nice sporty looking car that has 4 seats! (Me and my friends go everywhere) Some room in the back would be nice, but not abosultely nessisary. From most to least important, Looks, Power, Gas mileage (yeah, lol there are cars out there like that!) If you guys could help, that would be so nice =)

Whats the point of asking this? People are only going to tell you what their favorite car is. But based on your question I would say somthing like a Celica or a Hyundai Coupe would be an ideal car for you.

thanks

Well, what if someone likes a car that doesnt suit what i want, hopefully they'll be honest and answer truthfully. But thnaks for your suggestion, im buying a car and going to look into those options.. Oh and i do like "being able to mod" the car. =)

Looks more important than power? I'd say they are pretty close, but most definitely power would be my first objective, as long as the car wasn't dead-butt ugly.

Oh well, I can suggest a few of my favorites. Any 1994+ Honda Prelude Si VTEC would be a good choice. Good performance, and great gas mileage.

And I assume price is a factor? I'll wait to see what you have in mind before I make any more suggestions.

yeah

Well, yeah. I dont wanna go overboard like 20k, but 10k i think would be my MOST. I just found a dream car, actually, Mistubisihi 3000GT, nice looking, fast, expensive... lol. But yeah, price sort of does matter. Ohhhh, Newer Dodge Stealth looks cool =)

I think if you car more about looks than handling or power then you shouldnt get somthing powerful cause itll be more maintinence plus you wont really appreciate the car. Plus you probably couldnt drive it good either.

Well what I mean...

Power is important, but with power comes LOTS OF MONEY, like the Mitsubishi 3kGT goes 260 kilometers an hour, thats fine, does 0 - 100 km/h in 5.5, I know thats not the greatest but its not the worst. I like power, but I dont want to have a money pit where i keep up putting lots of cash into it to make it go super fast, making something look good is a lot cheaper too :P

He didn't say GST so I assume he meant the non turbo one
