Today I traded my Tsukuba Red 2.0t base A/T (yuck i hate the base) for a mirabeau blue 3.8 Track M/T.

Smart move? I believe I did the right thing. Your thoughts? I hope to post pics when the rain stops around here.

you went from the lowest end model to the highest and your asking whether it was a smart move? lol unless you were making more than 300 hp on your previous car then yes a smart move :D

no i didnt have 300 hp in it. I just was wondering with m/t tranny vs. a/t and color of course which may not matter to some. plus i know that there are alot of 2.0t fans on the forum

funny you mention it. it cost me $29.00 more dollars a month..FTW i think and the 3.8 had 2000 less miles too.

Hmm per month eh? Depends on how many months you're financing for and your APR. What was the trade in price and your actual price? I was about to do something similar, but the economics just weren't worth it. Good for you if you got a good deal though!

yuck 3.8 2.0T for life. Grats on the upgrade, you should of got a rspec or track from the begining. The price difference is so minimal.
You are right i shouldve got a track or rspec from the beginning. Though the rspec doesnt have cruise control which wouldve sucked considering i use it if and when i travel. and i liked the lip or spoiler on my trunk deck. but different strokes for different folks right?:dunno:

I bought a 3.8 cause of the rumored refresh for next year. I figured I didn't want to be too sad once all the new engines came out for the Gen.
