    gah, if you can drive and handle a 4wd vehicle, then your CV joints will last. As long as everything around it is of good quality and maintained well, youll be right.

    TX5....meeh. More trouble than what theyre worth.
    200sx i tells ya. Youll fall in love with it the day you test drive it.

    4WD and RWD are a lot different to plain FWD vehicles. :smokin:

    whoops, stupid typos.
    Thats what I get for typing and listening to two similar conversations.

    The FWD cars will last longer with decent maintenence of course. I havnt found they go through CV joints any faster than I guess, 'normal' unless they are abused. As with any type of car, you really have to take the time to inspect and maintain the equipment. Saying that all FWD cars are of lower quality or performance is pretty silly though. While I prefer the 4/RWD personally, I wouldnt hesitate getting a FWD car either. I have one in fact.

    Anyway, *uses jedi mind tricks on Warbo to get him a 200sx*

    Theyres a pearl green 200sx for sale up here for 13k that I see everyday on the way to tafe. Id sooo get that if I had the money....

    :D Yo! Nissan Altima!
    Best bang for your buck! Even the older ones (99 thru 2001).
    I own a 2002 3.5SE.
    Incredible car.:thumb:

    I like people who jump into conversations without reading the previous posts, reminds me of me.

    An Altima is too expensive. I like the 200sx idea. Do theyt have a type-R version in Aus? My old girlfriend used to have a 200sx-r. Atleast i think thats what it was called. I wouldn't call it fast, but it is "sporty"

    Are you guys all into japanese econo racers down there? I guess im just biased to my car. Or the fact that for 10K US i can get a turbo version of my car that could smoke a stock vette in the 1/4 with only a 100$ chip, and wastegate shim. BTW, how much would an '86 to '89 Porsche 944 Turbo cost in AUS?
