Default I had a Ride in a Neon and an Aurora lately.

While still being carless for now today a co-worker was nice and gave me a ride in her Neon... I kinda had a hard time fitting in the front seat enev with the seats all the back

Last night I was partying with a few McCoworkers and we we're in his '96 Aurora. Very nice ride. I was jealous cause of the stuff and the info center. Makes me want one

Later

I still would love one (the classic Aurora)! I was looking at a couple before I bought the 03, and if the 03 didn't turn out to be a good car and the Aurora did, I probably would be driving an Aurora right now. It was Diamond White like Jim'* and I would have swapped the swoops on it. But it had a bad repaint job according to Geoff so the 03 was a winner.

Overall, I couldn't be happier with the 03 SSEi. It'* exactly what I wanted and despite the few cosmetic imperfections, I got a good car with a ton of aftermarket potential. I couldn't imagine driving an Aurora INSTEAD of this 03, but I sure would love an Aurora in ADDITION to this 03.

One day.....

Its not a race car, and it doesnt have an aftermarket, but it forces you to be creative if modding is your game.

That and it just looks so good.

Just as a comparision, the 4000 lb Classic Aurora can run high 15'* to low 16'* from the factory. 2nd gen is a bit faster, with a modded exhaust 14.8 has been reached. The fastest I've seen is a modded Classic run a 15.1

Keep in mind, the person driving has alot to do with how a car moves. The rora has more hp and torque than a ssei. does the rora have torque management to keep it from being a beast? is the powerband that different between the cars?

Yeah refinement was the number one concern with the Aurora. Early Torque Management cripples the Aurora tire burning ability.

a 60 mph roll race might have shown different results, but there is no way of testing that anymore
