next step up ...



I looking to step up from my E46 and buy something else. Having a hard time deciding but right now its a choice between a 92-94 NSX, z350, or a 94 Lotus. Does anyone know anything about the negatives of these cars?

Can't believe you will move away from BMW. For me a step up from my e46 might be an e90.

are the cars you are considering for daily driving?

just a heads up about the NSX, if you get into any kind of accident it's really pricey to repair because most of the parts are aluminum, my buddy bought a NSX awhile back, his friend got into a little accident but the parts alone for repairs came out to be $12,000, a few suspension parts a fender & some other shit came out to be $12,000, other than that the NSX is a great car, amazing gearbox

also stay away from Lotus unless you have extra money lying around for repairs

the 350Z would be the best choice because it's a pretty new car

old lotus esprit does nothing for me... old NSX too many problems / costly repairs now. the 350Z sounds like an OK choice.. but not much a step up from the e46. e46 m3 is a nice option though. Sounds like you're looking for an all-out 2-seater sports car though.

It'd help if you said what your restrictions are, and what direction you're headed in.

the M3 I would fine just as pricey but I need a change in look.

I guess I am looking for something thats a looker. 2 seater sports car with rwd would be more towards what I am going for. Out of the 3 that I mentioned the NSX is the more exotic type of car. It would be more of a summer car and have a beater for winter and off repair days.

I even looked into restoring a De Tomaso Pantera which would also take some time and money but within price range of 40k.

Corvette Z06 then.

NSX is overpriced crap IMO
350Z is definitly not a looker.
Lotus is very unreliable

I'd go with the nsx, but consider the s2000 if your thinking about the nsx because they are very similar in terms of performance

Dude if you are willing to spend about 40k to buy a nice sports car then grab a C5 Z06. I was going to buy a Z but plans changed and I wont be able to have 2 cars.
