I don't want to hear what people think of DSM's or anythign like that. I'm wanting to trade in my 4dr auto accord for a year or two newer Eclipse GSX as a graduation present from my parents. I need a lot of reasoning that would be logical to a parent why I should go from a slow 4dr automatic to a quicker 2dr turbocharged "sports car". Seriously, I need some good reasoning. This has been a dream car for me for a long time and with my graduation, an actuall chance for me getting a better car is here. My reasoning: I dont haul around too many people, so I don't need a 4dr Trade in would be within a grand after I sell my aftermarker accord crap to some riceboys. Accord $5k, GSX $6500 AWD is much better for MT winters AWD is safer It wouldn't have a fart can that my parents hate so much It wouldn't have a cheap aftermarket suspension I would be much happier Feel free to bash my car as much a reasonably needed in making the GSX look better.
