yeah, I know.... lol I like the car. I was hoping to keep it for a while as its almost paid for... but it needs some stuff and I don't really feel like doing it. ie, a clutch. and the other day when it was hot out, i'm pretty sure I heard some detonation during a WOT pull. not sure. it might have been the lsd creaking... I've been taking it easy ever since regardless though. either way, my outlook on it has changed. the long-term outlook is starting to look bleak. I don't want to dump 1500 bucks on a clutch set up just to have it end up popping the motor because there's more load on it now that it doesn't slip... and the warranty hasn't been nice to some people who have blown up. Further, i'm not looking for a project car. I just want a nice daily, that's pretty close to stock. I've had it a while, since july of 09. so its been 4 years now. And is officially the longest car I've owned, save for the del sol which I didn't drive most of its life. lol so, i'm thinking about putting it back to stock (all i have is an intake, catch cans, and reflash anyway...) and buying something else. maybe new... probably not. 2008 ish or newer is probably what i'm looking at. I demand a well-driving car that has some nut or i'll be bored of it in a week. honestly, the 2013 genesis with the v6 is peaking my interest more than anything. it's a bit more than I want to spend though. I'd LOVE to find something in the 15 grand price range with 30k on it ish instead like an off lease cpo'ed dilly at a 2nd market dealership. most of those are audis and bmw's and while nice, I really don't think I want to go down that road again. maintenance costs blow and dealers around here don't want to do shit to a car you didn't buy from them. things im NOT interested in include subarus, g35/7/z's, a hatch might be nice. the new focus is pretty cool. but I don't really want a fwd car either. ugh. lol I know, im annoying and i'm already annoyed with thinking about this. so, yeah. any suggestions, post em up. otherwise, tell me to gfms.
