Being a GT4 freak myself i've got a couple diff. cars that might be fun. If ur lookin for a wagon then go Stagea or maybe a Mitsu Legnum VR4. Kei car: Honda Beat or Diahatsu Storia X4 (i would say Cappucino as well but it seems out of the question reading other posts). Other suggestion: Toyota Sprinter Trueno GT Apex

I don't think a Beat would do well for him, it needs to be somewhat practical.

And if the Toyota wasn't so popular, I would say yes, but the Trueno probably is way too expensive.

On a side note, maybe something more mundane- an early Honda Civic or Accord?

you are right on the Beat. not enough car there. most of the kei cars fall into that, but i may change my mind on that once i get there. the trueno isnt a bad car, but it doesnt really pique my interest.

but you really have to get off this honda thing. with the plethora of stuff available, i am not going to drive a civic or an accord.

showed the wife the stagea last night, and she seemed to like it. she is less into the Cosmo.

If you do go a kei, maybe a Suzuki Wagon R RR? Pirate special.

Stagea's are nice, but bear in mind they're pretty big vehicles, if you've never seen one in the flesh. Factory manuals are rarer than rocking horse shit too.

edit: Forester STi ftw for whoever mentioned that.

Forrester STi ftmfw!

and the yes the stagea is big, but not terribly big. it is my car with a butt on it, so not too out of the realm of drivability.

Buy some shitty Kei car for the wife, then an awesome 90's 400 or 250 smoker for yourself.

only reason i put in this thread is i just drove one and it is HILARIOUS. hands down one of the better city/daily cars i've been in for yonks.
suprisingly spacious but yeah you'd want a second car..

we will probably only have one car. there is a big parking problem in japan, so you often have to rent a parking spot, or only get one for your residence. again though.. we will see on the specifics when we get to them.
