It'* all on what you want really. To me, it'* a FWD v6, it'* my daily driver, and i'm in college, i needed reliability, and what not before "sportiness". It'* not the manual tranny, Rwd fun car I'd rather have, but it'* been fun to modify it for street driving.
For example, the HUD? kinda neat, but not a selling point to me, the SC is nice and i'll put an L67 in my car if the engine or tranny ever lets go, but for now it still makes a good noise when I hit the loud pedal.
Some people overlook the importance of how cars have been treated, and focus on options more. Getting an SSEi that'* been to the gates of hell and back isn't IMO a better car then say a comprable SLE that'* in showroom condition. Some can be brought to good condition, others are money pits.
That'* not to say the SSEi isn't worth it, or anything, but wait out for a good example if you have the time.
