Is a 1998 really better than a 1999?
I'd realllight to know the details.
I bought a 1999 with pano,xenon,6CD, and couldn't be happier
Only $6500, too

Well, I did have to buy a set of tires (Bridgestone)
And brake pads.
One of the old brake pads was not made right and jammed in the caliper
rear one so didn't affect the braking much.
I just wanted to take them out and look at them.
First time I had ever seen an electrical wire connected right to a pad
Had to find something to do, as everything else is A-OK

HaHaHa, I love it........resurrecting a 12 year old thread to offer someone advice on what car to buy. I'm guessing he's made his choice by now. Either that or he is one picky shopper. :p
