^ I was looking for them last year, they were practically impossible to find one that's in Manual and in decent shape.

There are quite a few for under 10k.

The last one has ugly rims though. X.x

Of those, I would take a look at the black one.

The yellow one I saw in person a few months back. It was sorta beat up.

anything is helpful, thanks
Buy a car you like and genuinely have interest in. Not just because "omfg I want 5spd" Like you've been saying since you got your Civic.
Wait for something you like that's within your budget, don't just buy something on impulse because it fits the simple criteria of 5speed.

Any car with RWD and a Manuel transmission and you're good to do.

almost none of the suggested (other than the Volvo) would be deemed "safe" by the OP's parent.

Here's something for j00: 2005 Nissan Maxima with the VQ35DE.
http://vancouver.en.craigslist.ca/nv...457634776.html

comes with LSD so you don't worry so much about torque steer or getting stuck in snow.

that is a 2002.. only the SE's came with manual which was 6 speed (optional) and LSD.
the GLE's came standard with traction control , electronic engine mounts, less stiff suspension.

i had a 2000.. i drove both of them before i bought it and it is debatable, but i would prefer the previous VQ30DE-k over the first generation VQ35de.

i dont think i ever got 500kms a tank even with full highway. drinks premium fuel @ 70 or so L. it was probably the quietness and smoothest car i ever owned

not really 'cool' with RS tho. Although with that said unless you want to attract young little underage boys you shouldn't be concerned about what you drive.
