I am in the market for a new car this year. I will be buying the car straight up, no financing. Just a cheque. I am having a hard time deciding which car to buy. I LOVE the new Mz3 (and everything it comes with) but it is a first year car; all first year cars have their fair share of blips. The Civic Sedan Si is very well put together, I like the rims. The Acura EL is another viable option, but I don't like the looks of the car this year as much. I wish that the Mz3 was in its 2nd year. I want to roll in 160 ponies on 17s. Black mica + black leather interior.
