help me come up with some ideas...

so, since i dont really wanna keep my mazda3... ive been looking around

can you guys throw in some ideas for used or even new cars?

So far:

Dodge Srt-4 (but i dont like dodges interiors, so maybe not)
Cobalt SS (chevy, and its a supercharger.. idk..., not my dream car)
Acura RSX (i like em, but insurance wouldve costed me 330 a month)
2007 Tiburon (Lacks engine power, so no thx)
2002-2003-2004 Porsche Boxster (Its cool, its a porsche, ugly CD player and id have to sell it for sure when i get a family i bet, but i got like 5-6 years left until that)

2000 Honda Civic Si (its 2000, and its a civic... ride would be horrible, and girls would probably not wanna ride in it)
Used Honda S2000 (my bro keeps telling me to look at them. idk, they are real nice, but dont pop out at me? idk)

Show>Go but factory go = nice show. haha.
the SRT-4 Would need some overhaul in the interior. rip apart that dash, get rid of CD player, new seats, and paint everything some other color than dull grey... i think it might be black. idk. still not that stylish to me.

So, i want a car thats faster than the 160hp Mazda3, maybe about 200+ hp, cause i gotta upgrade, not downgrade. Factory turbo would be fun, until it breaks, but hope not. But Vtec is tight too, cause they are quick. (for 4 bangers....)
But im looking for class to still impress ppl with. My mazda3 has gotten quite a bit of complements from a range of ppl, and some stares. and some challenges. lol. So i want something a little more better.

Any ideas would be nice from different ppl. I like to see what others say.

Re: help me come up with some ideas...

Cobalt SS is shit. its supercharge and only has what? 200/210 hp?
the Tiburon may lack power, BUT...it's a V6 and if your going to do some modding, you can increase the hp up VERY easily and very quickly. Also, every single Hyundai engine comes FI ready. You wouldn't have to buy new heads or pistons or rings...nothing like that..bolt on the turbo or SC and you'll be ready to fly. I say go RSX-type S or DEFF the Eclipse GT. the GT has 270hp stock I think. It's something crazy high like that. It's a whole different type of engine (SOHC and cast iron) but it does have the power to make yourself cry. if the insurance on the RSX is high, the Porsche is going to be crazy. As for the VM GTI, I don't like them personally, but if you can deal with it, go for it.

btw, I call dibs on any mod if you part out

cobalt ss crap my brother has a 4dr one and the interior is totaly crap compared to the 3. The only thing i like in it is the pioneer stero system with the sub in the trunk stock .

Now bear with me, used to own a jag, & it gets in your blood. But if u want to impress & get compliments, & want class, & a big ass smile everytime you get behind the wheel, this delivers and then some.

Re: help me come up with some ideas...

Jag's are surprisingly affordable for the class they are in. And they're fun to drive too. A friend of mine bought a red X-type and I <3 it when he lets me drive it. I think his is an 03 and he paid around $20,000 for it. This was about 2 years ago... here's an 03 X-type for under 15

Re: help me come up with some ideas...

buy a tiburon with the v6 and slap a supercharger in there. ever seen the vids on youtube of the dude who just OWNS everyone? shit yes. you could even leave it at that and have a wicked sleeper.
