Question What winter car should I get?



$8000-$11000 price range..

Putting down $5000 and finance the rest for 2-3 years

What would be more economical and less maintenance? Thanks for the advise.

96-97 BMW 328i
- Close to cloud9 cam kit mod?

92-94 BMW 325i
- I'm used to e36 and can probably repair this myself.

97 Acura CL 3.2
- I use to see this back when I was working at Yellow Pages. The executives was driving this around there.

1996 AUDI A6
- AWD fun in the snow

1997 Lexus EL 1.8
- 1.8? gas saver

NISSAN 300ZX
- looks good

97 Cadillac Catera
- The girls caddy

95 Mercedes E320
- I dunno whats the maintenance on this monsters.

91-92 Toyota Supra
- Watch out for blown head gasket?

97-99 Subaru Impressa
- Fun in the snow?

84-86 Porsche 944S
81 Porsche 928
- High maintenance?

94 Jaguar Vanden Plas
98 JAGUAR SOVEREIGN
92 JAGUAR XJ6
- Money holes?
- Are you on crack?

I'm looking more on the mercedes E320 but i'm not familiar with the car, are they maintenance hog?

correct me if im wrong but i have a feeling most of those cars you listed are out of your budget

for example a 96-97 328i? those are at least 15grand and for one in good condition even more.. same with some of the others

and plus you want it for a winter car..i would say an older subaru 4wheel drive.. those are pretty nice

yes those goes for 15g min. i'll just put down more and get the monthly payment i want. i'll look at those 328 otherwise if I can't find a decent one i'll just end up getting a low mileage 325. BTW, actually this is going to be my winter/daily driver so it might even service me during the summer since i have no other car right now.

I would have to say go for the Audi. Maybe even an A4. We just got a 2000 A4 1.8T Quattro, and in the rain it is amazing . I can't wait to see how it is in the snow.
