With more power comes worse gas mileage.

I suggest if you want good mileage, look for that and bike space over anything else. After all, your car will likely just be a faster mode of transportation.

VW GTI - depending on the generation it's a great little car and they have a cult following

98/99 (2nd gen DSM) Eclipse - no, you're not Paul Walker and you don't have a vagina...and 2nd gen's are junk, go 1st gen.

Subaru Impreza - yeah, good cars but the older ones are shit unless they were properly maintained their entire life.

If all you wanna do is customize the car and not do anything with the motor, then look into the Honda Civics (EF/EG/EK) because you can have one of those for cheaper than any car that's on your list and they're far more dependable then all 3 cars combined. I'm, of course, partial to Civics just because of the wide variety of parts they have and the fact you can make a 300whp Civic for less than $4000 including the cost of the car. It may be FWD but they're dependable and since it's meant to be your first car you can leave it stock and then upgrade over time.

don't get a boosted EG as your first car....

a boosted GSR is not a good motor to use as a daily, if you found a GSR Integra or a GSR swapped EG without a turbo then it would be good.

or this is nice and in my price range

did you take in how much insurance is going to cost on some of the cars you asked for? I pay 65 for my Ls400 that i payed 2500 for. The 1uz has enough power to get it sideways ;D

How about something not so cliche. I'm looking for a first car too, but I'm looking at hatchbacks that won't be expensive to insure. Example, Ford Focus ZX3. My brother had one as his first car and he payed like $70 a month.

that is literally one of the biggest piece of shit cars you can own...i had a 2004 SVT Focus and it was absolute shit. He wants a car he can fuck with, you can't fuck with a Focus or else you look more retarded then the Civic kids who rice them out.

Haha truth. In that case, Get an MK1 Rabbit. Cheap on insurance. Reliable, and you can customize the hell out them. And plenty of space for your bike. Also, chicks will be on your dick because you have a VDub.

you obviously have no idea what "fast" is, my slow Hyundai Elantra would dust off a ZX3.


and i want pics of this Mach 1 hood...please tell me your dad didn't slap a gay scoop on the hood, please tell me it's not true.

if it's a V8 then it can be made fast for cheap but they're junk, they fall apart and leave you stranded more than it runs. EF's can look good for cheap, same with EG/EK's but the older EF's will cost more to maintain since they're so damn old.

'98 Nissan Maxima XE. Been hit like ten times, still running. Room in the back seat for the bike and more if you move the passenger seat forward.

the D16Y8 is a decent sohc, you can make them pretty quick for cheap. You wanna stay away from body kits, especially gay ones like the one the CRX has. The riced headlights and taillights would have to go too...but it's a good base and if you could get him to about $1500 then get it because you can take the $500 you saved and get an OEM front/rear bumper and side skirts.

that crx looks like every stolen salvaged title honda running around... with that being said, i would do what the dude above me said and get the oem trim back.

Just get a decent condition stock civic.. not some riced out piece of shit. If you get a civic and decide to mod it, dont make it a riced out piece of shit. Nothing better than oem parts. And saying a zx3 is fast is like saying grizzly adams didnt have a beard.
