I'm 32 in May and I still can't decide which clothes to wear in the morning; your question is a little harder to tackle.

I'm also considering either a 2.0T or the V6. For me, I wouldn't mind the extra power and luxury niceties like push button start/stop, LSD, HIDs, mirror turn indicators, etc. I have all but ruled out the base 2.0T because for a "paltry" 3k more, I can get heated leather seats, sunroof and upgraded audio system.

In the end, I may regret not getting the Base V6 with things I want such as push button start/stop, "true" keyless entry and HIDs.

The 2.0T Premium w/leather, upgraded stereo and moonroof is $33k after taxes and levies while the base V6 is $39k. May be I can cut back on spending a few months and see where I am financially then and treat myself to the V6 base.

oh boy i start a thread like this about a month ago if its anything like the one i started its going to be a war in here lol but you will get some good info.

here is a couple of weays to help figure out which car is for you. you need to see what you want in one hand you have a 2.0 turbo thats cheaper and Imo is going to have more after market parts available soon than the 3.8 now the down side to that is you wont have a warranty any more if you dont care about that and plan to modd then get the 2.0

on the other hand you have a 3.8 v6 that is pretty fast for a stock coupe and can keep up with most of the other cars in its class so you dont have to modd it or you can put just exhuast intake and headers and have more power while still keeping your warranty.

thats just my 2cents

I speed by hybrids so they hear me killing the enviorment!

Living in Canada, an LSD is a huge benefit for half of the year driving in snow, mirror signals and push button start are nice extras, but for me the improved power and fun of the V6 plus LSD make it a no brainer.

If you plan on modding the car, want to save a couple thousand and don't mind missing amenities or think you "need" huge power, then get the 2.0t

Probably Canadian.

We may be the better North American country, but we get ripped off on car prices

Canada?

On the topic, it's completely subjective.. Drive both, map out your plans on what you want to do with the car, and then make your decision based on that.

Why oh why can't I get a v6 track edition without the sunroof, turn signal mirrors, leather, spoiler, but everything else. Is that too much to ask?!?

.... Yes, I know the answer to that question, but it doesn't stop me from asking!

Canadien here.

The increased power could be good and bad. Good in the sense that you have the power to backup that sporty look of the car; bad because you may be tempted to push it when the open roads tempts you.

300hp is more than I'll ever need. I just think I'll regret not spending the extras for HIDs, and other cool things that are only exclusives for the 3.8 V6. Gas is going to be a killer as well.

I guess we're polarized on that. I know sunroofs add weight but 99.9% of the time, this is going to be a cruiser. I probably won't track it but might take it to an organized track day once in a blue moon to see how my Gran Turismo/Forza skills translate to real world physics.

You know... 2.0Track does come with HIDs etc. i know.. it lacks auto a/c and heated seats etc. but seems like 2.0 Track would also work for you

ahhhh hell....


2.0t - buy it if you fit one of these
  • just care about the looks, want something sporty, but all out performance is not the big deal maker. Would prefer 30 Mpg
  • in love with turbocharged 4 bangers
  • plan to mod the hell out of the thing
  • yearning for a boosted RWD platform
  • 30 MPG MAN!!!
3.8 - buy it is you fit one of these
  • Want all out performance out of the box without the need to mod the car.
  • love the noise that V6 makes
  • happy with simple bolt-ons putting you at around 300 WHP
  • looking for some mind bending headache work boosting an NA V6
  • Prefer the leather
  • want the track with an auto tranny
There are hundreds of other perspectives though. LIke was stated, this is probably a once a month thread around these parts I expect this one to get hoppy too soon

MY PERSONAL PLANS are to get the V6 Track. I will start with light mods and eventually boost the thing. The 2.0t is very tempting from a tuner perspective for me because it is looking like it will have awesome potential, but I just love the noise of a V6 sooo much more.




Oh, and if you want to search for shorter combinations, as long as you are looking for more than one word, surround it in quotes may help...

The Canadian market only offers HIDs on the Track version of the 2.0T which is $30,000. I rather spend the extra $2k and get the GT V6.

^I think you explained it best. The category breakdown is perfect as far as I can tell. That should be stickied somewhere.

Again Canadian base is US GT and the Canadian GT is the US Track.
There is some little difference as Canadian version doesn't have brown leather nor the spoiler and there is 1 more diffrence I just forgot....very minor diff.
