Dude, Seriously, get the vehicle. A "GS" is the Cadillac of the MX-3's. My 1.6L 4-cylinder could keep up with Camaros and S2000's. If you don't get it, I'll gladly take it. They are Fun, Easy vehicles.

Buy it! It's a v6, and takes forever to die! You have at least another 50K miles you can do on it. I'm on a second engine, total mileage on the car 200,000!
