(YOU) have 35-40k to blow on a car.

If you had 10-15k more, this would be an easy 996 turbo. Alas, you do not, and so you must choose something else.

You are between an r32 gtr, an rx7 FD, and an e39 m5 and can't decide what you want.

    E39 M5 or E92 M3 is closer to $20-25k, so that's what I would do.

    $35-40k can also get you a pre-owned M2 which would be my choice. I'd be fine with a DCT. I wouldn't be crazy buying a FD or GTR for that much, don't like wrenching the older I get and the spares for either are a lot of money

      Brehs, just get a Z32? on paper accomplishes the same thing as the GTS-t but without the need for turbos.

          944 bros, how do you deal with the transaxle? ? wouldn't a big 6L V8's torque explode the transaxle??

    I’d get a spirit-r in grey with that money. They’re just at the upper end of your budget and I don’t see their value ever really going down.
    I love R-32s as well, but it’s a lower class of vehicle IMO, and you’re getting gouged on r32’s these days. Also, skylines are pigfat heavy i6 muscle cars, and modern versions of those exist that are newer, faster, more comfy, etc. So you’re basically just paying for looks.

      A JDM spirit R? Can they be had for this cheap?

      Like the other poster mentioned, an M2 or even a m240/m235i would be a good pick over a gt-r. Same i6 goodness but new, comfy, and better build quality in most areas.
      I would absolutely buy a spirit-r if I had $50k to dump into one, but if you just want a fun car to daily, spend $20-25k on an import rx-7 and use the other $25k of your budget for an engine replacement and when the itch bites you to modify it ( coilivers, differential, clutch/brakes/etc and replace basically everything rubber on it. ) This would give you a great rx-7 that’ll drive better and be more reliable than most cars out there. You can always go for power after that, but they’re great fun with just an exhaust and a tune.
      I honestly prefer mine with an OEM muffler because it’s very civilized for daily driving and that only costs me like 20hp

      I'm not planning on heavily modifying anything I get. I'd want something stock feeling. Mainly just reliability mods and replacing worn out parts. A JDM rx7 would put me well under budget, probably about 30k after import fees. Certainly tempting.

      My old neighbor actually had an m2. Didn't realize they were so cheap now.

      None of those overpriced snowmobiles. I'd buy a nice c5 Corvette for like 15k and invest the rest in mods and restoration and get a beast of a sportscar that's better in like every aspect

      Alright Dale, lets get you back inside for some pudding and bingo.

        A JDM spirit-r has been sitting on goo net for awhile now for just under $54k. This would be driving a museum piece and it’d be the perfect rx-7 if you want to keep it stockk and low miles. If you want a daily driver, any model rx-7 in manual is fine. I basically just listed replacing worn parts. These are old cars, they’re all going to need work. I prefer to replace stuff before it breaks, and unfortunately now that means most everything.
        I’ve never had an issue with the “rat’s nest” or stock turbos btw, just replace the hoses with silicone early on.

          Also, some of the best advice I got was to purchase one with the best interior possible. My first one was a mess but only took about $10k in mechanical repairs to get sorted out. It costs probably the same roughly for mechanical parts now (less maybe if you account for inflation and the weak yen), but interior parts from junkyard pulls were cheap and plentiful, so the interior would’ve only cost a few thousand maybe to completely replace everything. The situation feels totally different now, with used parts drying up and in worse condition, and new parts being non-existent. $300 trim pieces add up fast, and you’re thankful just to be able to find them usually.

          Oof yeah, definitely outside of my budget.
          I'm still not certain if I should import a jdm rx7 myself, or if I should just look for one that's already in the states. I know some people have gotten burned by shady importing companies.
          A US model rx7 is out of the question, just not worth paying for lhd.

          Makes sense. That sort of thing is just getting harder and harder to find.
