    see it depends on what kind of car that you want, and how much you\'re looking at spending, and whether you want to finance or lease or what not.

    i have a friend that\'s a leasing manager at a car dealership so let me know what kind you\'re thinking

    I bought my car form LOUGHEED ACURA, and so did my sister. They have the greatest service in the lower mainland. I searched for my first car for over 6 months and been to many dealerships. In the end, I went back there and got my Acura EL

    Spencer is the salesman name

    If you are thinking of leasing a true sports car, you won\'t have much luck with a car in the price range of under $30,000. All true sports cars that are worth driving are over $55,000 at the minimum. Even the Honda S2000 is over $50,000. If you are looking at under $30,000 then you should be looking at Sport COUPES instead of a Sports Car. For the 30 price range you should try the Honda Prelude, Acura RSX, or Mazda MX-5 :)

    but with those sports cars you also have to realize that you will pay more for insurance (they tend to get broken into more, and b/c they\'re a 2 door) and more for gas (larger engines) so just make sure you know what you want before you go out and get it.

    With a sports car, you\'re bound to pay more for gas because you won\'t be able to choose the REGULAR gas. You\'ll have to go for the SUPREME or SUPREME PLUS. Sports cars don\'t necessarily use that much gas Babyblues. In general, SUV\'s and larger vehicles consume more gas. I was test driving several cars a few days ago at the Auto Mall in Richmond because I\'m on the market for a new ride...so far I have my eye on the Lexus R400h. Very sleek SUV with neat options. When the car is in reverse, there\'s a television screen on the dashboard that acts as a hidden camera which displays the rearview of your car so you can see where (or who) you\'re backing up on. Nice option to avoid hitting any pedestrians or backing up into objects :)

    no i was referring to the RSX and the MX-5 that take up more gas than other sport coups that arent\' in that high of a market....i was looking into an RSX, but after everyting that i wanted with my car the final price jumped up to $35000.....so i switched to a Mazda 3 Sport (although 4 door it\'s quite sporty) and i actually prefer having the 4 door, although i didn\'t think i would, and i got it fully loaded for a complete steal :)

    What does the Mazda 3 Sport look like? Is it a hatchback-type car? Please post up pix. Thanks :)

    no i got mine from Morrey Mazda and had awesome service. i would totally recommend going there.

    I originally wanted the RX8, but it\'s was way too high for my price range, and my mom test drove the mazda 3 regular one, and i fell in love with the way it handled, so i wanted it

    Hi Babyblues! :) You\'re right about payin a bit more insurance for sports cars. My sports car is a 2-door but da insurance isn\'t any diff for a 2-door or a 4-door I believe. I paid about $2500 da first year for insurance and I noticed that each year it\'s decreasin cuz ICBC gives discounts each year. And I\'ve almost reaching da Roadstar level so even more discounts comin soon! YAY!!! As for da gas, I use supreme and it takes about $65 to fill up my tank completely. Gas prices are insaaaaaaaaane now too so that sucks! :angry: :pinch: :dry: I bet you hate to drive ur friends around now that da gas prices are so high huh? :)

    see i only paid $1600 for a year\'s insurance.....cheaper than my friends jetta and civic (although civic\'s are the highest b/c they\'re the most stolen ones, lol).

    actually, my mazda was cheaper than my old cavalier\'s insurance, and i had the same 45% discount for roadstars......

    Hahaha jase, then how many speeding tickets have u got???? lol
