Question Which is better?

I'm going to buy a new car and I'm wondering if it would be better to buy a fast car or buy a cheaper car and use the money towards making the cheaper car faster. Tell me what yalls opinions are. Thanks!

Judging by your range of threads whether to buy a Kia or a Porsche, you seem quite conflicted as to what you want. It's hard for us to tell you what you should do with such a wide range. What are your priorities in a car?

lol well I'm having trouble deciding what exactly I want, I would like something fast and has good handling but decent on gas, I also would love something with a really good sound system although ik I can get aftermarket things for that, so far the Genesis Coupe is looking like a nice option

Most European models are fast and responsive, and have great audio. Look into a BMW, Audi, VW, mercede$, Volvo, etc

So if I were you i'd drop it, and spend a day going and test driving different models. See what you like and don't like. We can't tell you what you want. We can give you tips and reviews and some buying advice, but we can't tell you what you need. You have to figure that out. Otherwise if you buy the wrong segment car you'll always regret it.

Yeah and I understand that but I'm not getting a car till this summer so I'm just trying to do as much research as I can so I know what to test drive but right now the BMW 3 series looks nice and the genesis coupe, and i know the BMW is a thousand times more luxurious but its also twice the price of the genesis

I know I've went through a lot of choices with cars but they're expensive so you shouldn't
rush it, right now I'm considering loaning a new car or just saving to pay for a used car but so many cars I was looking at had too many miles on it or were abused and modded to hell and back what would you guys suggest?
