whynotthinkwhynot OH, sorry, I started blending comments together. You have the Chevy RS.

Eh.. I think Chevy can do better with a performance model- really. They probably will next year, and that might be upsetting for you. After a co-worker drove one to work for 2 weeks, I started looking into turbos for the base engine. Surely someone could make a rocket out of it with 1.8 turbo. I'd like to see the Spark with a 1.8 turbo GDI engine, and the magnetorhelological suspension. For that, I'd consider one. It would probably be about the same cost as a Fiesta ST though. Performance ain't cheap.

whynotthinkwhynot Someone else on this forum has an Abarth.... I can't remember who though. I just want the girl from the commercials.

I know about the Fiesta ST, you might as well get the Focus ST, or a slightly used Focus ST.

just an fyi I didnt say 60hp from bolt ons.. i said 40 with the tune and about 20 all together with the intake and exhaust.. the trifecta gets 38+hp on an auto tranny and more on the manual

And that's where they get people. Loading it down with all those options. Even with the taxes,title and licensing fees my Abarth went out the door at $23,050.50. MSRP on that was $22,700.

Blue5ive Doubt you will get 60 hp from bolt ons. Show me a dyno and I will believe it. You might get 20 from what you mentioned.

If I had the money I would totally go to the focus ST but For the $20,300 price im paying for my sonic RS and being able to add the borla exhaust, rims and audio system and bring it to the MSRP and putting 6K down I just cant pass that up lol.

I will make a thread when I get my sonic in a month and post pics... might just update this one with pics in the OP

Blue5ive Good luck with the Sonic but try a Fiesta ST with the 190+ hp when it comes out. You may switch cars again.
