    well ok then, something to ponder..... for every 100lbs it is a tenth of a second in the quarter, roughly.

    Yeah... are any of these with a manual tranny? I could never own an auto tranny car. And a 2-door>>>4-door... speaking for myself of course.

    RWD... that's my pick. I assume the 160/164 FWD is a Stratus or older Sebring- or an MX-6. That's about what their V6 engines were rated at. I have no idea what RWD sedan came with an engine setup like that in the States- but then again, you didn't want us guessing, right?

    I choose turbo/162hp/195tq/3305lbs/RWD

    cause if you end up wanting to do something to it, hell it's way easy to upgrade a turbo.

    first choice, hp can be added easily, although it does weigh a decent amount more.

    If you're gettin a beater? what do you care about performance?

    beater=a car you shouldn't care about and shouldn't spend a whole lot on.

    Ie: get something reliable, cheap and make sure it gets good gas mileage.

    IMO, whichever of those two is more reliable, cheaper and gets better mileage...which is probably the NA FWD vehicle.

    actually they get about the same gas mileage believe it or not and they are both somewhat reliable. I want to get a decent performer because I cant stand doing 75 on the highway. I need a car that accellerates quick to get me outta peoples way when they piss me off. Performance is saving peoples lives from my road rage! :angry: Also the first car is a Lux Sedan so it might be more comfortable on those long drives.

    Well I dunno then I personally can't help you. I would buy a beater car that's cheap and reliable... a lux sedan is not cheap...
