Car suggestions?

Hey, i got my license this summer and my parents are gonna buy me a new car. I have a limit of 35k list price. I want definitely a convertible, and used is fine, but not older than 03'. Yes, speed is a factor..... This car must be a convertible too...because my mom wants a convertible...and i guess so do i.

The m3 is my dream car 333hp and it looks so sweet omG...but all of them are around 40k used....and the ones which are <35k have maddd milage on them. Any suggestions?

You're lucky that your parents are buying you a new car and while I am jealous, I'll give some actual advice lol...Why spend all $35,000 on a first car? Why not get something like a Solstice?

Why should he have to kill himself even if he is spoiled? What is this anti-kids-getting-decent-cars trend?

I believe some kids think they have a higher limit than they actually do, though

Oh yeah, m3 convertibles are substantially slower than the coupes. I wouldn't recommend that.

You should get a 350z convertible, maybe an 05 (with manual transmission please!)

Or why not a 1995 ferrari 348 spider?

z4s are very nice too, but slightly "controversial" styling, lol.

2007 mazda miata with power retractable hardtop. Save yourself a good 5-8k and get one of the most fun-to-drive, best handling cars in the world.

I agree that we shouldn't be this harsh with him, however, chances are he's not really going to get $35,000 worth of car....

Yes but the prht one is in high demand. The msrp for it is about 24k. If he gets the sport package and leather seats, it could run him up to 28-30k.

They're amazing cars!

CLIFFY: Like I said, I think kids tend to believe they have higher budgets from their parents than they really do. But then again, he did say his mom wants a convertible, and his mom wants this/that, etc. Maybe it's a car for his mom? Or for him to share with his mom? Otherwise why would she be dictating what he getson it?

And given that point, you're probably gonna get an automatic, cause most women don't drive sticks :\ My friend's uncle got a porsche boxster and his wife made him get an automatic and she only drove it once in 7 years. I'm never getting married, I swear.

I gotta say that I'm getting tired of these " I just turned 14 and 3/17 and my mommy and daddy said they would spend 35k to 50k to buy me a new car so I can show off to my friends and wrap it around a telephone pole in the first month.So what should mommy and daddy buy me?". You know what? Get a life! Why are you asking some dudes on the internet what you should buy? Why don't you do the research and test drive every car you might like and see what the pros and cons of each car are and go from there. If I had 35k to spend on a car, I would buy a 90 to 94 awd turbo DSM for 3000(for a nice one) and dump the rest in the motor and drivetrain and have the fastest 4 banger car in town. And if I was your dad I wouldn't buy you sh*t. You know what my dad said when I asked if he would buy me a car? Get a job and buy one yourself. Oh you want a Playstation 2? Get a Job. Your telling me you want a dirt bike? Get a Job. And now that I think about it, I should thank my dad for not buying me everything I want, cause I value everything (well almost) I bought with the money I have earned. So get a job instead of begging your parents for everything and maybe you won't turn out to be a spoiled brat that'll live in his parents basement for the rest of his life . And thats my rant.
