New car maybe?

Hey guys Im looking into getting rid of the civic for something with a little more "get up and go" I really want a STI or an EVO but I am not there yet. But I could get a 350z for about 22,000 through my G/F's dad. It will be a year old, and will have been only driven by exec's from Nissan. What have you guys heard about these cars? Ive driven the automatic but how is the manual as thats what I am gonna get. Also any of you guys know any good site about them? What do you guys think I should do with the civic...Try and sell as is for about 9k or part out and go back to stock and then sell? I have these mods...

AEM SRI, Kamikaze headers, Random Tech. Cat. converter, Magnaflow exhaust with custom piping, Im bagged, 2 12" subs, infinity reference speakers all around, fogs. My car is in great condition so how do you guys think I will come out with in the end?

Which Trim level would you guys suggest...I do not know any benefits or downs to each of the different ones so if anyone could suggest a site that would be great. Whats cool about this deal that I can get is that I can have my G/F's dad look for whatever car I want with the options I want through out all of the US and Nissan will ship it to my door for free! So basically I can get any kind of Z I want as long as it stays in my price range.

Wow, a Civic turning into a money pit, fancy that.

My vote goes to the WRX, 350Z and Evo in that order.
