My dad has an '02 4 door GTP and that car moves!!! I took it to 95+MPH without even breaking a sweat when chasing a 300zx on the freeway... needless to say my dad doesn't let me drive his car too often...
My dad has an '02 4 door GTP also...and his also moves. It is the one in my sig. I took it to 85 once...scared the **** out of me so I let off...of course 85 isn't even quite an 1/8 mile. I have driven that car, hmmm let me think, about twice, EVER. I'll stick to my high 14 second car. Not that I wouldn't want a mid 12 second car, just that I can't afford the tickets or tires.

Yeah, but I am sure that your dad'* moves at a little bit of a faster pace than my dad'* GTP. I think that I'm going to take it up to the track sometime soon, as the temps are starting to get cooler. If I do, I'll make sure to let you know how ours runs stock, my guess would be low 15'* or very high 14'* if I get lucky.

Jason...i think you took my earlier post personal..didn't mean for you to, just used your name because you posted next.

being a woman, and seeing posts of women referring to cars in "colors" after my posts gives me some sort of ground to feel offended. Especially since that'* the LAST thing I do and I have been a member here a LOT longer than any of you who have posted on this topic. I've been around long enough for you to know that'* not the case. Sorry if anyone is offended I'm offended, but, then, that just wouldn't make sense now would it!?
But, I was just kiddin'!!

Well keep in mind we weren't going after you, it was more of a general statement of our culture.

A good friend of mine'* wife can tell you year, make, model, trim of just about any car ever made. I have other friend'* who are females, who are also mechanics. I think stereo-types are rediculous and only show a lack of depth of character, and I jest about it to show my disdain for such thinking. I meant no offense...

I can tell you for sure than when I drive the GTP it is stiff and feels a lot like a sportscar, whereas the SSEi isn't as stiff, but it doens't feel any less stable, you can just definately tell you are tagging along another 300lbs and a much bigger car. Both the SSEi and GTP are very nice cars, but honestly, I would rather have an SSEi just because they are much more luxiourious, and when you compare them there are a LOT of little things the SSEi has that the GTP doesn't. Don't get me wrong, a GTP is a VERY nice car, it is just that the SSEi is MUCH nicer IMO.
What he said.. Really I looked @ both and I use the inflater-my friends get a lot of flats for some reason. + the seats just seemed -eh off - not as bucket as I think a car like that should have. In the end the SSEi is and was made to be a much nicer car and more toys it has the more I use so yea if you like a lot of go and not much else get the GTP. So I got the 2000 SSEi.
