Oh... oops.

Sorry. I made an assumption that the 02 was your daily driver when you said you didn't consider the turbo car to be a daily driver.

Carry on.

Another option I am considering is keeping the 02' as a not really needed daily and the 93' as the fun weekend car. Meanwhile I can prep the 02' for a proper, big power build. This way I could take my time over the next few years. I already have a ms2 for the 02'. All I would need is the VVT tuner and I could install them and learn that **** for the next few years, then when I build my 1.8 instead of putting it into the 93' I could drop it in the 02' with the VVT head and be ballin son.

lol who knows. I've been driving the 02' the past few days a bit more because the 93' is down, and I really really miss this car. I don't think I should sell it, at least not yet.

Doesn't matter, car is sold. Went to a really cool guy and I think he will love it even more than me. Who wants to buy the MS?

Man, I had all these posts multi-quoted and was all set to provide some great insight and a meaningful revelation...

And then I get to post #23.

I was gonna tell you to sell it too.

Any time people start flopping back and forth about keeping or selling its the kiss of death. I haven't seen anyone actually keep it and care for it long term after they've considered selling. ITs only a matter of time.

USAA is ****. One of their clients Hit my wife twice in the same day the week she bought a new car. Took about 6 months IIRC to get paid, no joke.

Her friends were like oh I heard you got a new car? then like uhhh.. thats it?

Do they have more space though? I'd have to get the PRHT.

Plus I need AWD since I plan to move up to Minnesota after school.

Audi or Scooby is where I have my sights set. Audi only because I am technically an Audi certified tech and know the platform well Well I'm sure all my certs are expired now, and I only learned up to the 2004 model year.
