i know its a wierd comparo, but people like what they like.. and this is the decision im making. Ill be driving this car everyday. i want a 6 speed, so sportiness doesnt bother me.. i dont mind sticks in traffic.. all my cars now are manual, and i dont need a 4 seater.. but in the m its an added plus. i know the price difference.. but my current feeling is i get a lot more car for my money in the m and i could easily afford both. the 350z is cheaper though... easier to mod (which i wont be doing a lot of yet). im finishing up this last degree at school, which should get me a huge promotion at work, at which point i could probably afford to own both pretty easily.. lol so thats when i will go FI on either of the cars but for about 2 years ill be running minor mods and cosmetic stuff. I just dont want to push the reliability any further than necessary and both are plenty quick stock soo.... let me hear your thoughts?
