not my dilemma.... yet :P just curious what others think :)
Fyi there will be no 20k credit towards the ST. That's fairytale stuff. It would be nice to have an ST no doubt though. The power would be great but from what I've heard its almost maxed out. To get any significant increases they are saying you have to change the turbo. Also being new there won't be alot you can do to it either for a while. I'll have to see one in person first though cuz in that money range I hate to say it but i would be more inclined to buy an EVO or and STI.


But for 20k you could build a turboed SVT that would kick the crap out of the ST. Just wouldn't have that new car smell or all the electronic gizmos.

You're the one who mentioned " if you could get a $20k credit". I just quoted your post #16110. So you tell me where you got the $20k credit idea from cuz I have no idea either lol.

i wasn't referring to any particular thing, was a general idea of amount of money one could get available by any means, for me it would be credit since i don't imagine having $20 cash anytime soon


edit: there is some magic to people not expecting anything from your SVT on the road ....... :)

I have a respectable collection, and I would love to play all of them!

Don't have killer instinct though, used to but not anymore.

That little game handheld is only $80. Pretty good deal especially since you already have a bunch of games for it :)
