Ok what do you guys think about this?:
IMO, I wouldn't buy a used car from a dealer. You'll have to pay GST and PST (therefore, it'll cost you an extra 7%) from the dealer. Also, a lot of dealers cannot be trusted and try to sell anything. They tend to lie about the mileage a lot more than private sellers (just have to change the instrument cluster with one from eBay with low mileage).

I'm not a fan of the body kits or low front bumpers either because my car has to be my daily driver all seasons.

Welcome aboard,

I agree with these guys on getting a manual. Its not just that its more fun (which it is), but more importantly it gives you full control over the car. Good luck with your decision!

OK, I went to look at that with a mechanic friend and "apparently" some guy had just brought it back saying he was kind of su****ious of the young driver before it (IE he drove the living **** out of it). I looked at the same model just non souped and it was really nice. Here's the link exactly: http://www.trader.ca/SendToFriend/Re...2&adid=4682123

It is same model, no body kit or inside detailing. It does come with some kind of performance muffler, viper security system and a deck. Its also safetied E-tested and mint inside. I will probably put a body kit/wing on it and maybe paint it but i'm not sure. The 4 door makes insurance WAY WAY lower then the SI. What do you guys think? I have till tuesday to decide and then I either take it or get my deposit back. Also its standard .
