So after much thought and consideration, i have come to the conclusion I simply cannot afford a redline atm. But god damn it I WANT this car.

My question is this: What are my options really? Should i just buy a somwwhat cheaper (non redline) performance car and get the redline in a few years when i can actual afford it , or would it be possible to mod an ion 2 or 3 to redline performance. OR would it just be a waste of time, money, and effort.

Simply put, I got my RL for the price of a regular Ion. So in all seriousness, buying a regular Ion and trying to make it as fast as the RL is waste of $$$. If you really want one just try and save up for it...

how mauch are you trying to spend 20 a month or something. If you do the math its a pretty cheap car 17 after all the rebates. and if you have a few extras like you can haggle well then you can easily get out for less than 16.

well, i only make 9 bucks an hour and my hours rang from 32-40 a week. I checked out what it would cost for me to finance 17k and it comes out to monthly payments of 310. i really need payments closer to 250. I know its only 50 bucksm but it makes a large difference when your in my tax bracket.

If you aren't making much money than you have no business buying an expensive car. Financially, you will regret it if you do. Buy a Kia until you have more money if you have to have a car. Or buy a beater. I did all through college, and now I'm liking my financial situation because I didn't splurge when I couldn't afford to. . . If I could pick a cheap tuner car though, I kind of enjoyed the spec V for around 16.5 I saw listed on carmaxx. . . But then again, a redline with no options will be that after rebates. . .

hehe. No weed or cigs here ;). After bills and everything (including the redline) id have about $100 free at the end of the month. Figure if I save a bit more, and put a around 2k down, make it a lil easier on meh.
A couple good rebates wouldnt hurt either.
