I wish i owned one. From what i've seen and heard, the mechanicals are pretty much bullet-proof, everything about the drivetrain is pretty solid, but the interior is definitely a simple easy way to get by. If you're looking for comfort, you'd find better elsewhere, but if you're looking for a compromise between sport and comfort, leaning more towards sport, then you'll be in for a treat if you manage to find one near you.

Mate, the 240 may have the larger capacity, but the 200SX or Silvia is the better overall car. 4sp auto if you are lazy or like drifitng, but the manual will see you do 0-60 around 6 seconds easy. The S15 is lighter and looks better. The downfall is that look for a Spec R, they have LSD's in them... and go for the handling mods first, the car is a wild pony at times.
