Default 94 or 2003

ok so in the next couple of months my mom is gonna get a new car and im going to get her 2003 bonni but my parents said they dont want me doing anything to it so i cant decide whether i really wanna just do a bunch of stuff to the 94 or just drive the 2003 stock?

Are you paying for the car? Because if you are I'd do whatever I wanted to it!

A stock L36 vs. modded L27....hmmmm. Well it is much newer and has more power, but you could have fun playing around with the 94. I prefer modding. I can't just drive a car without modding it somehow. And the power/tq of the L36 stock isn't a whole lot greater than the L27. A modded L27 could take an L36.

Depends on what you want to do!

your 94 is also several hundred pounds lighter.


If your parents are going to "give" you the 2003 I'd trade it for an older SSEi.

What'* the deal behind not letting you mod it? Possible problems with it later on? Warranty?

I say, get the 2003 and if they let you just put a standard K&N panel filter in the stock air box, as your own personal budget permits put better spark plugs, plug wires, and 180* thermostat in.
Later when you are ready for a new car you will have a car with a much better resale value and you won't be kicking yourself for not doing the best upgrade.
