So there you are, sitting around the house with that $30k in your pocket that you’ve allotted for the purchase of your next car. You’ve looked at some domestic new cars like V6 powered Mustang’s, Challenger’s and Camaro’s, as well as some imports like Subaru WRX’s, Nissan Altima coupes and the Volkswagen GTI, however nothing seems to fit your fancy. What about a good used car though? I mean $30K will give you the ability to purchase some pretty serious hardware. You can go the modern muscle route by way of a used BMW M5, Chrysler SRT and or Mercedes-Benz AMG. Get sporty with any number of used STI’s, a Porsche Boxster or BMW M3, or if you’re crafty enough, you can even delve into the world of exotics. I found this out first hand this weekend when my buddy Alan stopped buy to show me his new ride.
This is a 1995 Acura NSX, and mother-of-God was it CLEAN! The car has 80+k on the clock, full leather interior, was a 6-speed and aside from some springs, it had never been modified. It also came with a full booklet of dealer receipts and in short, was brilliant. It got even better when I was tossed the keys and took it for a test drive. The transmission shifted clean and was very tight, the engine ran like it was new and there was also not a squeak or rattle to be found. Price paid… under 30K. So, before you go out and spend $30k on that new ride of yours, you may want to look around a bit because deals can still be had on some really trick hardware.
