Gas mileage on the burb would be comparable to that of my current car. Been getting 17-21 with it depending on the driving conditions. Burb would get 14-18 depending on the mods I do but would use regular, so price would be similar.

If I can find a nice GSE I would be all over it. As for the 240sx, SR20 is out. It'* my roommate'* car. It'll probably be a KA24DE-T next summer though as he just picked up a spare motor/tranny to build the turbo setup for it. Decent car right now. I'm slightly too big for it.

speaking of important... I haven't heard anything from your sister since they got back. I did talk to ashley a bit and we are making plans for me to go up there in two weeks.

And yes, your reasoning for the burb is another good one.

But Firemist gold is so sexy....

if you really think you need the Suburban then go for it, but otherwise I say stick with a car.

The Maxima would be a heck of a lot of fun for the 5-speed and the fact theyre nice cars anyway.

The Bonneville/Regal is somewhat of a toss up because you know what theyre both capable of.

IMO the Regal is a better looking car than the Bonneville, not that I dislike Bonnevilles, but the Regal has a bit better styling to my eyes. It will also be a little smaller than a Bville though, but from the looks of what youre driving now I dont think thatll cramp your style.

The Regal also has a slightly bigger aftermarket than the Bonneville, especially in the suspension and braking areas, you can make a Regal stop very fast and handle very well for a car of its size fairly easily.

I say do a little research on the Maxima, and if you like what you see go for it, you already know both the Bonnie and the Regal are more than likely gonna treat you very nicely.

speaking of modding, the aftermarket for maximas, specifically 4th gens is gigantic. it dwarfs any L67 car aftermarket.

and you will never make a bonnie/regal handle like u can make a maxima.

I vouch for the Maxima.

But it'* cool that you're behind the wheel of an S14, I find the KA24DE to be a pretty enjoyable drive, albeit the one I get to drive every now and then is mounted the wrong way and powers the front wheels, not to mention its automatic Good torque, cool snarl in the midrange revs.
