Default Dilema............

So as you all know I am in the market for a newer SSEi. I have my 99 SSEi up for sale. My buddy called me and told me about a Regal GSE that he found. Friend of a friend....blah blah blah..... The pictures arrived. It is spotless! One owner. A crate worth of receipts. Guy followed dealer reccomendations for all services. GORGEOUS!

The problem is I REALLY like the car. Can buy it cheap,....I know I could flip it but I dont want to. Does this make me a bad person to disrespect my pontiac like this???

I thought about keeping both. Wifey is not too happy about that.

it doesn't make you a bad person. hell if i had the chance my bonnie would be gone for a caddy STS-V but it'* still a GM. question is are the miles lower than yours and does it have all the options and such that you loved so much with your bonnie. overall it'* still your decision and nobody going to hate ya for it

The regal is a good car, but not as nice of a ride. But a bit faster

Hmm I'd go for the Regal myself given your two options. The HUD doesn't really matter to me, heated seats would be nice, and I always like lower miles. If the car is as you say spotless, I say go for it. It'* all up to you in the end though.

You gotta do what you feel is right Scott. I wouldn't consider the HUD or the heated seats a deal maker or breaker. It'* what ever is right for you. Look at the bright side, the Bonne and Regal share the same heart
