in every car i had, i always go for the Handling first sense its a daily driver.

Because the way i look at it what the post of having a fast strait line daily driver it you cant stop or turn to avoid something... and sense most roads arnt straight

My priority is reliability. Once I'm sure I have a reliable vehicle that'll get me to work and whatnot, I can then worry about the other stuff as time/money permits

But, I also want her to be clean and pretty so I can brag a little.

I think the accleleration route is the best way. BUT reliability is a big factor also. It'* much more fun and it'* always nice to get the feel of freeing up horsepower. I like to to keep my cars looking stock on the outside and don't prefer to change that. Mine is gonna get a paint job soon and its gonna stay stock on the outside... to make it a sleeper.

PS... I think you should add a Acceleration/Reliability choice to the poll.

I'd say handling. But there really isn't much out there for the Bonnies to improve that.
