Ok so a friend's dad instructed my friend to stop using his second car ('05 Altima 3.5 SE) and go out and buy his own. These are his options, the Eclipse isn't officially sold here, but a well-connected friend of his ordered a fully-loaded one from the States about 2 months back and he's bored of it now, so he wants to sell it. In the used lots he's also managed to find an RX-8, a 350z, and a G35 coupe. My friend desperately wants the RX-8, but it wasn't sold here officially, which means parts will be a bitch to get here. Same goes for the Eclipse. So out of the Z and the G35, his dad and his older brother want him to get the G35 because it has four seats. He prefers the Z because it's basically the same car, but easier on the wallet for him. He also prefers the Z's interior. Whichever one he gets, I don't think he can go wrong, and he'll be picking it up this weekend. With my g/f out of town, I sense some racing action going down this weekend...

RX-8! It has 4 seats that are far easier to get in and out of than the G35 and costs less than the 350Z.

The RX8 is about 135,000 Qatari Riyals (QR), the G35 is 130,000, the Z is about 120,000, and the Eclipse is 90,000. It's about 3.68 riyals to a dollar. He wants the RX-8, like no other, but parts availability is nil...he'd have to order them specially.

That isn't exactly a bad set of options. The only other coupe that's available here that fits within the budget is the Hyundai Tiburon/Coupe V6, and that really doesn't compare to the others.

There isn't an NSX available, and he's not Arab, so he does care about resale value, especially since he's paying out of his own pocket for the car.

god these threads are lame. people already know what kind of car they are going to buy. someone could tell this guy that the eclipse sucks, and the RX8 gives you head while you drive, but since he obviously hasnt been interetsed enough to bother finding the specs out for the RX8 he doesnt really want it... my BET is no matter what all of the guys here that have real opinions say, he'll get the eclipse because its "fully loaded"

The Z hands down. I've driven both the G35 and 350Z (Track), and there's quite a difference. I'm an enthusiast, so I like the purity of the Z, and I also like torque (gooooooodbye RX-8). And the Eclipse? Is this a joke?

He's going for the 350. The Eclipse was a last resort really because if the other cars were sold before he made a decision, his friend would keep the Eclipse for him, plus it was easier on the wallet. The '06 Eclipse is actually quite a headturner here, because there's only one and no one's ever seen it before. He decided against the G35, because another friend is getting one, and the RX8 because of parts issues. For the record he had the specs for the RX-8...I didn't. It was the 6-speed with 238hp, in titanium gray.

Well I personally prefer the 350Z out of those, so I voted for that. The Eclipse is just a joke. I hate everything made after the second gens.

Actually in 2 hours he's going to pick up a slightly used silver 350z tiptronic (puke), yeah but he's getting it for a good price so he doesn't mind tiptronic at all.
