Do any of you have experience in rushing into a car purchase and ending up wishing you had waited f

[]Sammie Robertson

Glad I dodged this bullet when I was buying the s2k- I started to lose hope, and almost settled for a 350z. I like those cars, but not nearly as much as my s2k.

[]Robert Sixto

I don't really tend to have that problem, as I've learned I really fall in love with whatever car I have pretty easily. Lol
Also, I only tend to look at stuff that would be fun to drive anyway, so the compromise is never really Prius instead of Miata.

Thoughts on a loaded 2018 mustang GT VS used GT350?

[]Robert Sixto

Gt350 all the way! I'm all about trying to scoop up the most uber trim level version of a car possible, my feeling is you are getting the best possible version of that car and that it will also translate to better retention of value.

[]Jessica Pomerleau

not a huge fan of the way the new mustang looks so I'd go so the the get with the gt350

Should I sell the focus and get a 2013-2014 Mustang GT or keep it as a daily and by an NA or NB mia

[]Drew Veling

It honestly depends on your driving habits. If you want more attitude on your commute and don’t mind the gas mileage, get the Mustang, as a V8 rumble is a glorious thing (though I wouldn’t want pre-2015, I’ve heard that the IRS makes the ride much more civilized). If you want a car you can track/autocross, I like the mentality of “Don’t race your paycheck.” If you still have the Focus to get you to work on Monday, having something break on the Miata during a fun drive over the weekend might be less panic-inducing.
I lean more towards keeping the Focus and getting a Miata, personally. You don’t have to be precious with it, it’ll be reliable, and while it’s pretty easy to add some power to a car that’s lacking, it is really hard to make a car as eager and chuckable as the Miata is. Weight is the enemy!
For a bit of a wild card, you could always consider an 86 chassis (be sure to fix the torque dip) or a Fiesta ST, too.

[]Antoni Dabrowski

Get a Miata. Gonna be much more enjoyable than the Mustang. While the mustang is an awesome daily I think it'll leave you wanting. It will be comfy enough to satisfy the daily requirement but any car guy will feel bored without something a little more go-kart in my opinion unless you're a power only guy.

[]Brian Post

But the Miata - you will have so much more fun with a project car and a reliable daily.

[]Andrew Taylor

Do you leave car meets often?

[]Ryan Howell

Yeah, but it add an element of surprise leaving

[]Jordan Shuster

Get a mustang so I can continue to live vicariously through my Wheelwell friends. :')

[]Ryan Howell

Hopefully I'll get one and you can enjoy it through Wheelwell

[]Chris Dirkschneider

MIATA! I really enjoyed my Miata when I had it, such a fun and nimble car!

[]Jake Johnson

I'd say sell the focus but I wouldn't wish that car on anyone knowing what it's been through lol

Buying a project car with a friend thoughts? I'm afraid of ruining a friendship over a couple bucks
