WHAT?!?!?! NO SPORTY CARS?!
In that case, a TL might be a decent call, so are Infinities in your price range. A Lexus IS from 2007-ish with 50-80K miles will also fall in the upper end of what you're looking to pay. There you get luxury, RWD (because deep down you know you want it), and a car with a little pep to it, but not quite a true sports car.

I'm thinking the only way to choose between those will to be actually drive them.
if you don't care about room the 350z is the one i would get

Drive them all, but lean toward the RSX-S or WRX, as you can get a very nice one in that price range. Believe me, you're better off spending a good amount of cash to know your car is in good shape than to get a super bargain and have your car run like **** and break down after a few months.

RX8 is similar to 350z but much slower in a straight line. Might handle slightly better. 330ci/xi is going to be mediocre at pretty much everything but comfort. All three of them will be stretching your budget to get a cheap one.

I'm over my upgrading car phase. Whatever I do to my next car will be tint and tint alone. Maybe rims if they're chrome, hate chrome rims. So I'm gonna try to remember the cars I'm looking at

Accord Sedan and Accord Coupe
Altima Coupe
G35 Coupe
IS250
TL
TSX
3 Series
Civic Sedan

I'm sure I'm missing others. I considered RSXs for awhile but I have a Civic, my buddy has a newer Civic, unless they revamped it's suspension I want nothing to do with one. I want a smoooooth ride.

IS or 3 series if you want something comfortable. The others aren't exactly luxury cars.

Coming from a guy with a beat up 02 Civic, anything is luxury. Sure, the Nissan and Hondas aren't luxury but they can come nicely equipped.

The Accord, Altima, and TL maybe. But the Civic and G35 aren't going to be super comfortable rides. I'm confused as to why you seem to dislike your civic but are considering buying another one. Is yours old and you're considering a newer one?

I was 17 when I bought my Civic and the first thing I did was slap 17s on it. I've regretted it ever since. But I do love my car, it runs great but it just has small quirks and after 5 years I'm ready for something nice. The Civic would be a '12 right off the lot, or a '13 if they're out yet.

I know the G35 would be stiffer, but it's still a classy car, definitely the one with the most balls on my list.

You can get an Altima with the same engine as the G35. Pretty sure it's detuned a bit though. Anyway test drive as many from your list as you can, taking mental notes of which rides best, etc. Then come back and look at the ups and downs of each and make a decision from that.

I have 25k for a car, new or used. Want a sporty car, with leather seats, and hopefully navigation. Must have Ipod/USB port!

I was thinking Honda Accord, Altima (both with the V6)?

A lightly used Accord coupe with the V6 would be nice. They're definitely nice cars and those V6s can get going pretty well.

350z's IMO are only nice when they've got some mods/tuning.

WRX's are great cars
