I'd get the 3 series but I don't think this thread is going to go in a good direction. I don't know we'll see.

None of the above. Genesis V8 if I felt like I had to impress people.

Personally, I'd bank some of that money and drive the Elantra a little longer. It's your money though, so whatever.

None. Does this job have enough job security so you don't get stuck with large car payments once you lose your job? At 90K a year I'm betting that the job security is there, but with your age I don't see this being very viable.

To be "Devil's advocate" in the eyes of Bob... Maybe driving a 2005 Hyundai Elantra is your ultimate driving goal, but I'd trade the 'lantra in a heartbeat for any one of those... not that that'd be MY list, but it's a list of better cars. Shut up about "The Elantra gets better fuel economy" or "It'll save you x dollars a year"... that's not the point. He can now afford a more expensive car, and he'd LIKE a more expensive car. Ease up!

Ultimate driving goal? Hardly. But legally how fast are you goingto go not on a racetrack? That's why there are project cars and Daily Driver cars. Drive one and play with the other.

All the cars listed are purely "Look at me and how much money I have" cars. Other than the Evo and maybe the 3 (depending what version) the rest are nothing special to drive. They are like flashing a wad of $100's. . . all for show.

"Little more expensive"? Are you serious? Cayenne Turbo $70k+. Range rover 80k. C350 $50k. That's double to quadruple the cost of the Elantra. A little more expesive would be a Genesis, or a Sonata.

Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution MR. Its sporty and nice, not crazy expensive, and pretty fast. Has about 300HP, so should get the job done.

Congrats on the new job.

well the job is Dent Dr and and two franchises are owned by my cousin so i don't have to worry about loosing the job..and bob is right i'm not looking for speed i'm looking for a car to show and not only that i LOVE luxury vehicles...But like one person said "buy a house" I really don't need one i'm only 18. When it comes to saving money i'm really good believe it or not so i will save a lot of it because i don't have any expenses only thing im going to have to pay for is my car,gas and insurance.. but no one really said what car they would take!!

So you're living at home, making "$90k" and you're parents haven't kicked you to the curb yet? You're lucky.

I already stated. . . If I had to be flashy and look rich I'd go Genesis V8 and add 20" blingy rims.

as much as i agree with bob and getting a genesis... IF i had to pick a car out of the list... I PERSONALLY would get the evo. simply because i dont care for the rest of the cars, they dont interest me. the evo is a tuner car, and thats what id get. the rest of the cars r like... sunday drivers or business drivers... not something id DD.

the evo, or genesis. or buy another elantra n go ****ing crazy with it.

What are you doing. Poping dent's for $90K a year. Not gonna happen. I wouldn't take any of those. I would get myself a Truck. A sled and a Dirt Bike. When Spring rolled around I would then get a GSXR. Also You must have some Damn nice Parents.

well if I was making 90k i'd def grab a house, f buying a car if you want to REALLY show off you can tell people you have your own HOUSE at 19, i guarantee that will impress people more than any car. and your credit will be good enough to get whatever you want by 23 probably.

if you still want a car though i'd go with something old to play with or buy multiple old cars, you could get a boosted 240z and destroy everything I am biased though. I don't think you can go wrong w/ 400hp and 2400lbs.



Or grab this jag with a 355
