Hehe, well, since I still suck at shifting, I would say 18 something realistically. I think it has the power for a 16 out of the box and can easily reach 80+mph by the end of an onramp without trouble... but I blow so much time shifting and can't launch it for crap that it would be a horrible time. It has 109hp and weighs 2400lbs.. thats not a horrible combination and it is much more zippy than I thought it would be.

As for the black on black rims, I like that too, however these jumped out at me and are a bit different and I have never seen a car with them on it.. just like the xB, I am trying to stay somewhat unique.

I can also verifiy that it can spin the tires relatively easily if you let the clutch out a bit too fast. I could probably leave a..... 10 or so foot burnout but nowhere near what the bonne could do from a 40mph roll and still can from a 25mph roll. I might have to photoshop the xb into that burnout LOL.

The sig will stay, I like to look at it too and that'* how I want to remember the ole' girl.

Not sure, but he may have been referring to the Bonnie...... and even if he wasn't, how fast do you think it'll run in current form?
