Out of curiosity I was looking at getting a Scion FRS.
A new one starts at 25k, and would end up costing probably like 27k after options and shit
I could get a 2013-14 with low mileage for 20k or so.

As for what you should look for, depends on what you want. But for a strict 20k budget you'd be looking at mostly just economy class sedans.

> new car
You're already doing it wrong. Buy a used car.

When you buy a new car, you waste a lot of money. Just the act of driving it off the lot will cost you, on average, 11% of the value of the car - in the case of a $20,000 car, that's about $2,200 pissed away. Over the next year, your car will drop 25%, or $5,000. Buying used not only saves you a lot of money but opens up your options. $20k is not a lot of money for a new car, given that the average new car cost $31k.
My car, a 2015 Mustang EcoBoost Premium, had a sticker price of $35k. I bought it for $23k: 34% cheaper, and after I detail it, it'll be in mint condition again.

Because for the price of a brand new cheap shitty car, you could get the top of the line car from a few years ago.

You could get something fully loaded with low milage for under 20k. Just buy something thats a few years old. 2012-2014 should be good enough. What kind of car are you looking for.

How do I clean the inside of my Windows? I tried wipes and sprays with paper towels, rags and microfiber rags. They all leave streaks or stuff behind

Buy two quality microfiber towels - cheap ones will leave lint and fibers behind. Use one to apply the glass cleaner and the other to dry it.
Find a good glass cleaner. I like to use Invisible Glass.

Clean it with alcohol first. Isopropyl alcohol is fine. Then use your glass cleaner. A little pro tip, wipe vertically on the outside and horizontally on the inside. So if you have a streak, you'll know which side it's on.

Spray and wipe, then use a dry rag to clean up the streaks.

I sometimes wonder if somebody went at my car with a toothbrush.

What kind of cloth do you use for washing and drying?

I haven't cleaned it yet; I've only just bought it fairly recently. Tomorrow, however, I'm going to be washing it using dish soap and a microfiber mitt, and then clay-barring, polishing, and waxing it. Here's hoping it reduces the swirls and scratches a little.

Does anyone have a way to get all the old leftover wax off? There seems to be more little white streaks every day

Re-waxing the car will typically blend it all together; however, I recommend you wash the car using dish soap, follow with a clay bar, and then wax it.

Started some of the free weight reduction today. Rear seat (both back and buckets), spare tire, spare tire jack, front bumper reinforcement, rear bumper reinforcement adding to the EGR, Smog components, cast iron manifolds, y pipe, catback, t-tops, misc junk out of car. All in all I'm around 220 pounds out of it, which should correlate to 2/10 quicker in the quarter. Car is around 3100 without me in it.

At least you got a warning. I didn't. I was just driving home and it fucking exploded.

Didn't even slip once.

I was left with some good news on this one.
I was driving to school when this happened, the Blower motor and other electronics also gave out. I ran my Xcal and it gave me a trans temp sensor gone bad and the car overheated pretty badly.

On my way out of school all my trans codes were gone like it was a fucking hallucination but the Blower still was out which sucked I had a pretty girl in my car
Today everythings working just fine so fuck me
