I finally sold my '97 GSR sedan,

Now I need a new car!
I'm toying with the idea of an automatic IS300, but the term "Just say no!" comes to mind. So I'm leaning toward getting a used BMW 325i and driving it for a year. We'll see what the next year brings, 5 speed IS300? Ass-ugly but blisteringly fast Impreza WRX? BMW 330i w/ fixed steering?

Get a Viggen. Just kidding - I know how much you hate those cars. If you just want a car to hold you over until the new WRX shows up, you should get a '93 NSX. The new ones have horrible resale value, but the older models hold their value very well (as long as you don't pay too much for one).

Heh. I gave the Viggen a fair shot, I wanted to like it. I read that Saab is dropping the Viggen next year, replacing it with a 9-3 Aero. As for the NSX, great car, but there's a lot of cars I'd rather have for $35-40,000, but can't afford that anyway.
