option 1. Sell the sti for whatever i can get for it. eat the loss if i have to. buy this m3. 97, 81k, $16,500. nice suspension mods, sways, 5 points + stock belts, autopower rollbar. set up for autox/bmwcca, bling set of wheels + stockers w/ all seasons buy this civic si [attachmentid=242] tons of miles (well over 200k) but its bone stock.... and will make a nice daily driver for 1700 bucks asking price. i may pick this up regardless of selling the sti or not. needs a new cv he says its clicking a little on left corners. and the paint on the rood and roof ins't greate/surface oxidation. who cares. hood is cheap. roof, wet-sand + maaco if its THAT bad. under 2k out the door for a stock eg si assuming i get the 28,500 i owe on the sti, i come out at 18-19k for total purchase. save 10k have a pimp car for weekends, autox, and keeping my garage warm... have a beater/daily i can take to work or haul 4 heads around.... and get some decent gas mileage if the motor is shot, who cares... z6's are a dime a dozen... same deal with suspension... i'll get some take offs.... thoughts?
