My neighborhood is quiet and full of old retired people. My price limit is around $23k...
I prefer 2door, coupe, & RWD. But I'm okay with FWD/AWD because then I can use it all year round(winter is rough around here, and so are some of the roads). RWD would mean I have to get an old/cheap 4x4 for winter.

What do you guys think? It might seem like an odd comparison, but in all honestly these are the two cars I'm most considering buying this summer....
My car has over 145k miles on it, and it's time for something newer....

1 Cobalt Turbo would be nice because it's just like my car(Cobalt SS S/C), but newer, faster and lower miles.
2 I've driven many 350Z's and loved them(but never the Nismo). Only thing is, I'd need a dedicated winter car, something 4x4...

What do you guys think(or other suggestions)?
