Overnight stays/trips with a passenger require extra planning (i.e. do I really need the spare tire or can I save space?) that you wouldn't think twice about with a normal car. When I bought it, I thought that I could work around its practicality (or lack thereof), but runs to the grocery store can even lead to sticky situations if you're carrying any additional items/passenger.

I would strongly suggest looking into an R32 or the like if you are able to find one with low miles. If you'd like further opinions on the Si (2008 sedan) or GTI ('03 "20AE" or '06), let me know!
I don't think a 08 R32 would be less than 20K I sold mine last year to the dealership for 22K (the KBB value was around 25K).

I would give a try to a Miata, bullet proof, tons of fun and reliable (plus they hold their value fairly well)
