3.8 base vs. 2.0 Premium

alright guys, I need some advice on a decision. The dealership which I have connections with is having an amazing deal this memorial day weekend only. I had my heart set on the 2.0 track but they can't find me one at all. I know I should for the car I want but this deal is too good. So basically, I was wondering what is a better choice, the 2.0t premium or the 3.8 base since they have almost the same invoice.

Any help would be great,im going to be there all day. I test drove the v6 yesterday and wow that is a mean car but like everyone says turbo cars are just so easy to get power out of. So any advice would be great, thanks.

Look through the threads of the modified cars by the vendors.. It depends on what you want. More power vs more gadgets. The 3.8 has made significantly more power than the 2.0 so far. And the 2.0 seems to not want to get too far above mid 200s without needing a turbo upgrade, so yes they're easy to make power out of but you're going to have to spend a couple grand to get there at least. But the 2.0 has all the bells and whistles too.. Anyway, if you were wanting the 2.0 track, I'd probably just go for the 2.0 premium.. Or wait if you can. Other good deals WILL eventually come around, you know.

Of course other great deals will come around but I wanted to get rid of my current car plus with this dealer they're giving me invoice plus 6 months worth of payments paid by them

Wow, that's a good deal. I haven't even seen a 2.0T yet. The dealership I went to only has 1 3.8 GT and 2 3.8 Tracks. It looks like the the 3.8 has more options. not many more but it really comes down to if you want a sunroof or not.

I think V6 is the better deal.

The premium so far seems like the better option with the keyless and infinity stereo but I don't like the lack of leather. The sunroof doesn't really matter for me though.

I'm actually sitting here in the dealership helping this weekend.

either way, they seem very comparable. Like I said, I never seen the 2.0T up close, maybe glanced at it once but I think it was sold.
