    Give it time - as you get older, insurance gets cheaper. I'm 29 and I pay 2k a year for full coverage on both my cars with a $500 deductable and pretty high limits, if I remember correctly it's 100/100/300 or something like that.

    No points, no accidents in the last 4 years. I still hit >=100mph almost daily, but my commute is 33 miles, most of which is highway. Oh, and I don't speed at night.... often.

    Those g35's are damn sexy, especially lowered a little. But if you're not going to mod right away, I think the STi is more fun right out of the box. Although the allure and prestige of owning an Infinity is hard to resist.

    i would say go with the sti and not just because i have one but if you want to go fast thats the way to go i've seen a supercharged 350z barely running low 13's which is terrible. g35's are nice a few girls i know have them. i actually wanted one but get a sti throw a bigger turbo and you'll be good to go

    insurance will be insane.

    invest it you make money while u cant drive the car anyway.

    buy a dictionary , learn basic spelling.

    and everyone says they'll drive slow, no one does. the allure of speed is too much .

    You do realize that Subaru makes a car with the comforts of the G and the drivetrain of the STi, right?

    Oh sure, it may not have the analog clock appeal of the G but it's certainly an easier and cheaper path to comfortable speed. The Legacy happens to be one cheap car to insure too.

    If you are asking what NA means.... Don't get a twin turbo g35.

    And just because you are going into a job that doesn't get deployed that much, doesn't mean that you won't. I have a friend in the air force that is a Dental Technician, and she has been deployed to Korea, and Turkey. I personally am a fire fighter. Most of us stay on bases and provide fire support, but I have been deployed once to Iraq, and I am going back in February.

    Plus, as a brand new Airman, you will be living paycheck to paycheck. Especially so with a brand new car. Your best bet is to wait until after you get to your first station. Then you can judge if you will be deployed, and if it's worth it to spend that large amount of money on a vehicle.

    Good luck with your decision.
