Should idle at 0 since it is digital. It is one of the options in the Driver Information Center, which is I recall is under the tach (or whichever is on the left side) At WOT is should be around 7 I would say. I was able to get 8-9 in my stock regal, but not that often.

What year regal>?

He wants retail ($6900) Trade in is 5300.

I dont want to insult the guy and give him to low an offer especially if his claims of taking care of this car are true.

I didnt drive the Regal yesterday.

The interior was falling apart, you can tell the last owner didnt have any pride in ownership so I walked.

But yeah I sat in a top of the line Bonneville and its much nicer then the Regal. But right now I just want something faster so interior isnt that important, I just dont want it falling apart.

The interior is the key part of a car when I look to buy a car. Ifs its dirty or trashed I always pass. The interior usually tells how a person takes care of his or her car!

I had a '96 Regal for a while. I liked the car except for one thing...the suspension. Too much "float" for me. It was N/A, though so maybe they have a stiffer one for the supercharged car? If you prefer a stiff suspension, you may want to drive one first to see if you like it.
