That's just a matter of personal opinion...Like IMO, new wheels, are better than a giant three foot spoiler...

Because its automatic and to squeeze 230 horsepower out of it il have to spend a lot of money. Getting a whole new car with a good base makes more sense. There are a LOT of mods for the SRT-4 like staged kits of the Turbo, Clutch, and all that stuff, and its direct from mopar so you know its good.

no, he means his current neon is an automatic, and he'd have to spend the money to get it converted to get it to his liking as a psudo-SRT-4.

actually owning a 5-speed neon, i cant say i'm 100% content with my car. it gets good gas mileage, it's big enough to cart two people and our luggage back to home for a 3-week break, it's not big enough for me to consider it "boaty". it is fun to drive, but deffinately lacking in power and torque, i'm not winning any races anytime soon.

the R/T has independent rear suspension (the base does not), it has a bit more power and like 2% more torque, but then i havnt driven any of the base models, so i dont know if it truely FEELS any different then the baseline, but i would put money on the fact that it does. for a cheap car, i'd deffinately take it over a civic, but only because of the publics opinion of the car, and it's a little more sporty then the competing civics. (aka: anything but the Si).

newyorker-
about the 3000gt, it just MAY actually be something odd about the car where they dont make it so the rear seats come out that easily. untill you have first hand experience, or second hand knowledge, can it hurt that bad to give him the benefit of the doubt? yea, i can see why you're getting defensive about this, your car, and other things, but you're not acting a gentleman either. even IF you like the neon so much, you must realize you're acting like the fanboy that you are. the SRT-4's are great buys, but it's not the car to end all cars. truely, it's not. it may help your image on this mesage board to stop flaunting the neon and srt-4 in every post that you can make a potential connection between the topic and a neon.

i personally have grown attached to my car, and i take slight offence when people tell me i have a girly car. i know i shouldnt be taking offence to you guys, but i feel like i should stick up for my car.

if you must, hate that ricer attutude, reverse-brainwash the ricer, shun the rice, make your own opinion on the car.

I am just defending my car as anyone else would if their car was insulted, and not just their car, but the make and model as a whole. I dont go saying that all Mustangs are trash, or that Rangers should be crushed. The only reason I got mad in the first place is because I told him that the seats in my car just lift right out, and he minsultingly said "Well my car isnt a neon". Thats basically saying that "My car isnt a POS that the seats just lift right out".
P.S. I found a site with the instructions but since youre gona be a dick about it then I think il hold on to it untill you apoligize or just start behaving yourself.
