Title: Eclipse or Twinturbo..
Post by: Seifer on July 01, 2004, 01:26:30 AM
Well im currently deciding on what i want to try to save up for and buy.. Well i really need a car (currently i have a permit not license but no car at all except my parents shitty old Oldsmobile Cutlass which id rather not use) So.. Im either thinking of buying..

1) Nissan 300zx Twinturbo (Preferably 92'-95')

or a...

2) Mitsubishi Eclipse (Preferably 98 )

Theres a few things.. Im having a hard time finding either of those cars near me.. Or even in Arizona being sold.. It would be appreciated if you guys know anyone in Arizona willing to sell a Eclipse or a 300zx.. Or help me and just searching the internet with the time you have.. Im trying to but at the same time im working and just everything else happening in my life so thanks if anyone helps.

'95 Mercury Cougar, they're spacious even with a couple hundred left wing books pamphlets and a picnic table in the trunk.

Well, I honestly have not researched the 300zx too much, the only Nissan I would really ever want is a Skyline... which is out of the question. BUT... Eclipses on the other hand, I have been researching for over a year. I am actually in the process of buying one now, once the DMV in New Jersey finishes their shit, I'll have it... so like in a week and a half? Now, '98? Any reason why you can't also look for '97s and '99s? They are almost exactly the same. '95s and '96 are damn close, but they have a different front bumper... the engines and the rest of the bodies are all almost identicle. Are you looking for an RS, GS (nicer wheels), GS-T (turbo), or GSX (twin-turbo, AWD)? I'm getting just an RS... originally out of the question, but I got it for $5,200 with only 51k miles on it, and it already has a blitz body kit, cool air intake, and upgraded exahust... so the wheels get changed and it'll be nice... considering my parents did not even let me look at the turbos. -_-

So yeah, just making sure you checked AutoTrader.com... its easily the best place to search. I'll do a search for a random Phoenix zip (not sure where you live, but its pretty central, so I'll just see what I get...). Alright, within 200 miles of 85045, any cost, for all 2nd-generation Eclipses ('95-'99), I got 35 listings... that sure is a whole lot less than I would get being more descriptive... so you're right, there are not many out there, huh? ^^;; Well, the price to miles ratio seems about the same... its just too bad they seem to be rarer there than up here in New England... ^^;; Have you thought about looking at 3000GTs or 3000GT VR-4s? They look more like a Ferrari than anything, but they are around the same price range as Eclipses... for a '93-'94 one anyway... I like Mitsubishi if you have not noticed. :P

Eh, hope some of this helps, the more input the more I might be able to help out. ^^;; Oh, this is mine by the way:

My '97 Eclipse RS (http://autotrader.com/fyc/vdp.jsp?car_id=165079327&dealer_id=&car_year=1997&make=MIT&distance=200&max_price=7005&model=ECLIP&advcd_on=n&end_year=1999&min_price=&first_record=51&certified=n&address=06757&search_type=used&advanced=n&start_year=1995&=&color=&cardist=75)

Yummy. ^_^

Oh, and when in doubt, just check google. ^^ I just found this, but again, not sure on your price range, location, color choice, etc...

Mmm... nice, though I don't personally like white.

Post by: Seifer on July 02, 2004, 12:47:59 AM
Heh thats a very good price for it, Id consider buying it.. but Im not going to start paying for a car yet til after I visit in Illinois <July 20th-27th> as of you im looking for a price range from 6k-12k..  The price he's asking for that car is very decent. Oh and yea.. what i was saying was the truth.. There are like no Mitsubishi Eclipses out here :P

97',98',99' will do, im looking to putting on the body kit if theres not one already on it.. and paying my uncle to do all the work so yea.

Edit: This is the Eclipse one of the guys at my other forum had, but he sold it because it was an automatic, and he bought a 1999 Prelude..

Nice... yeah, I'm planning on modding mine a little to make it look a little nicer... probably won't be modding the engine too much though, they are quick enough for me stock. And yeah, if you were here, that price range would get you a real nice one pretty fast... I'll see if I can look more a little later...

Oh, and yeah, selling because its an automatic is a good choice. ^^;; I still need to sell my broken automatic '89 Camaro. >_<

Between the Nissan and the Mitsubishi, I'd got for the Eclipse. Although my opinion may be a little biased since I love the Eclipse. :)

Heh, except its not mine, its my parent's... and I don't want to spend jack shit on that van, only gas. Besides, I never knew I would be driving it this long... I was supposed to get my Camaro fixed a LONG time ago, and it would not have been a problem.

Oh, and there seems to be a fair amount of nice Nissan 300zx's at that same zip code... this is everything below $12,000:

I don't see why people want cars as status symbols, I actually tend to avoid them as transportation.
Title: Re:Eclipse or Twinturbo..
Post by: Judau on July 03, 2004, 01:19:55 PM
Well, I know in my area, its IMPOSSIBLE to avoid, everything is too spaced out. Public transportation does not exist. Plus, driving is fun... and owning your own car can be fun as well... but it still depends on the person.

Well, search AutoTrader with your own zip code and see what you get... that was to some Phoenix zip code. You can also say you will look within 300 miles, 200 miles, 100 miles, 50 miles, etc... I would always do 200 because I wouldn't mind going say.... 150 miles for a car that look perfect. Ya know? That should get you stuff closer to home.

Well, I got my car on Saturday... a black '97 Mitsubishi Eclipse RS. Its fantastic, very fun to drive, the handling is great... I am going to have a lot of fun with it. I cleaned it all day Saturday (in and out) and replaced the CD player on Sunday with a new Pioneer one... ^_^ I'll be getting it registered tomorrow, I cannot wait to just be able to drive it around finally... I figured I would just reply here rather than start a new thread... so to anyone thinking about getting a 2nd gen Eclipse, go for it. Its a great buy, well worth it if it's in good shape. Even the RS is great, suprisingly... although I do have an Injen cool air intake, 5zigen exhaust, and a Blitz body kit on it... making it look, sound, and perform a little nicer than a stock RS. Anywho, I'll post pictures in a new thread in the Members forum when I get them if anyone cares. ^_^

O_o

Why not a GS or GS-T? O_o I can kind of understand not getting a GS-T, because then you are getting the turbo, but no limited slip differential or AWD added in that you get with the GSX... but there is nothing wrong with the GS, its the same as the RS but it looks a little nicer... and it has power windows and locks (which I might install on mine at some point).

Post by: Seifer on July 28, 2004, 03:07:41 AM
Well ive made a decision.. In a few weeks or maybe a month I will probably be getting a loan from my bank, then i will be buying this probably..

Nissan (http://www.autotrader.com/fyc/vdp.jsp?car_id=157030113&dealer_id=87389&car_year=1990&make=NISSAN&distance=200&max_price=&model=300ZXTURBO&advcd_on=n&end_year=1995&min_price=&first_record=26&certified=n&address=85045&search_type=used&advanced=n&start_year=1990&=&color=&cardist=18)

Nissan#2 (http://www.autotrader.com/fyc/vdp.jsp?car_id=139109495&dealer_id=&car_year=1991&make=NISSAN&distance=200&max_price=&model=300ZXTURBO&advcd_on=n&end_year=1995&min_price=&first_record=26&certified=n&address=85045&search_type=used&advanced=n&start_year=1990&=&color=&cardist=7)

Edit: I might just get the 2nd one.. Considering its cheaper.. and its a 4 seater.. and not much of a HP difference.

Its pretty cheap.. and well im going to contact the dealer soon. But thats the car ill probably be buying.. Ive given it some time and well.. The eclipse.. to many of em In my opinion, I like to be a bit different. And i plan to have this car for quite ahwhile, and considering once i graduate(in 2 years) ill probably be moving back to Glenview, Illinois.. where there r just to many eclipses then here in arizona. Its automatic, but ill deal with it.. the Horsepower is still 280 so thats good.. and im not planning to really sup it up, once i got the loan paid off pretty well and i got my insurance going pretty well ill just get a paint job/new interior.
Title: Re:Eclipse or Twinturbo..
Post by: Judau on July 28, 2004, 07:00:35 AM
Yeah, get the second one... its cheaper for about the same milage, its black, and its manual (BIG plus in my opinion <<). Go for it. ^_^ Better hope no one else buys it, though... if you can't get a loan for another month or so, you might just end up saying goodbye. But a few weeks... maybe. You should call the guy and talk to him about it, maybe give him a $500 deposit (so he KNOWS you will buy it) and a time limit  before he can sell it to someone else. Might be a good idea.

And on a side note, I ordered 17" wheels for my Eclipse, should be here at the end of the week. ^^ I know what you mean about Eclipses too... but I just like Mitsubishi, and since I can't have a Lancer, might as well stick with the Eclipse. :)

Its pretty much cheaper because its a 1991 Nissan 300zx 2+2.. and the 2+2 means its basically 4 seater.. regular 300zx's arent 4 seaters. So thats good i do need seats, cause i prob will be driving people around. There are no twinturbos.. thats another reason why it's cheaper.. But 222 horsepower is decent.. and my insurance will be way less because I dont own a car that has turbos then :P

 Have you thought about looking at 3000GTs or 3000GT VR-4s? They look more like a Ferrari than anything, but they are around the same price range as Eclipses... for a '93-'94 one anyway... I like Mitsubishi if you have not noticed. :P





Mitsubishi 3000gt's break down easily.  Especially the automatic versions.  Their transmissions like to take the pisser.  Well I know the earlier versions do, but I don't know about the latest models.  

Personally I would opt for a mk 4 toyota supra.  If you area has cheaper insurance rates I would go for the twin turbo supra...if you could afford it.  Apparantly I am getting a 300ZX non turbo which is manual.  I am fine and dandy with it not being turbo because insurance in NJ is a killer and turbo sucks up more gas than a NA.  But then again, we are going to be replacing the engine with the new corvette V8 engine in it.  Fuel efficient AND 500, or so, horses.  Lovely with a slick bodykit and really nice paint job.  It has been painted a pearl white.  If you look at it at a different angle it looks purple.

Nice, Ted, sounds awesome. ^_^ And true, insurance would be more with the turbos, that's one of the reasons why my parents did not want me getting a turbo... :-\ Although, since I don't have one, my car has only somewhere around 140hp... so I might do something with the engine later, maybe not a turbo, but something to boost up the power a little. ^^;;

But, at the very least, it gets me where I need to go. ^_^

Heh well.. I was just doing a bit searching for 1991 Nissan 300zx 2+2.. This site called mongoose came up i clicked it.. 5 links for ebay motors for the Nissan.. I clicked the first link.. and  I looked at it.. The owner of it is in Arizona.. hes only like 30 mins away.. and has no bids so far and it ends tommorow.. So ill prob contact him tommorow or get my mom to when im at work but heres the link..

Nah, Ill be contacting him. And ill just ask him to hold car, considering I dont have the loan yet, and no one bidded on it. Hed be pretty glad probably if i bought it off him. He lives only 30 mins away so it wont be as hard to get done etc.. Ill call him today.

And if i do get a loan from the bank.. ill have to put at least a down payment to my bank for like 500 dollars.. so ill only owe 5,000 then. And if the owner is up for it.. Ill pay him full cash and just be on my way with the car ;)

Heh.. well im going to the bank next week probably with my mom or w/e.. going to talk to the representative bout the loan.. and going to call the insurance rep monday to see how much it would cost monthly.. im thinking maybe 250-300.. and i make like minimum 700 a month.. so no biggie.

Then at the end.. he suggests i just put 2 grand in a shitty car we have..

Heh, sounds like my dad. -_- Thank God for my mom. My mom just completely took on the loan, and I am just paying her the payments to give to the bank. I thought you knew you wouldn't be able to get a loan by yourself. ^^;; And even if you were 18, it would still be a stretch with no credit. I wouldn't have been able to get a loan, and I am 20...

And I agree, don't waste your money on a shitty car, I had many grudges with my dad over that kind of thing... he wanted me to find some old-person car for cheap that "has not been used more than to go to the grocery store". ::) No way.

Really?  That is cool.  But also, insurance for a young driver, under 24 and a sports car is a lot, maybe that is why they are not too pleasant about the idea.

I am under 24... and with a non-turbo Eclipse, my insurance is not any more than if I had say... a Corolla.

Might as well add this..

Well.. i contacted him, he hasnt gotten anyone to offer him yet(Thank ****ing god).. But the problem is i cant get a loan for the car.. cause the bank im with doesnt allow for a loan if the car is older then 5 years.. and its a 1991.. but this what im going to do if i buy the car.. So i have to save up.. that will be bout 5-6 months(prob by the end of febuarary, beggining of march ill have the cash)

at first when i buy the car.. it will just look nice.. but then bam after 2 months.. start workign on the interior.. so ill prob have it fixed up and **** before i go to chicago for a month.. But gotta remember to save money for gas money considerin ill have to drive 1,800 miles haha

What the car will look like at first:

(http://img23.exs.cx/img23/7548/nis300x2.jpg)

the mats wont cost much same with the seats.. since all it is just the same seats with some sexy covers.. the thing that will cost a good amount is ripping apart the panels and **** and putting red ones..

All the gray to this..

I decided i wont paintjob it yellow.. kind of expensive.. plus red/black interior would be nice..

1800 miles for it?  Holy crap!  I would never go that far for a car.  200 miles max.  Even though driving back would be a pain, I would only go up to 200 miles away to get the car.  Luckily my 300ZX is by my brother's place up in Springfield, Mass, in his father in law's garage.  Which also has his beamer, the father in law's corvette and mustang.
