well a black one in halifax on saturday, are they selling them in canada yet?
There are some at the Dealership on kempt road for sale..
Is everyone prepared for the onslaught of overpowered, poorly built, cheap neon's to hit the street or what?
I know if I was in the market for another car a neon would be well worth the $5K sticker
They're not all that bad.
I mean, I'm not trading the bimma anytime soon.. but they're not that bad.
Bimma?? what did you get bish?
I would like to drive one of those POS's to see what it's like
Here we go again...
They've been for sale in Canada for a few weeks now. They started showing up here about a week or so ago. There was one infront of Steele on Kempt when I drove by Saturday night.
I'd drive one. Just dunno that I'd pay $30k for one. A WRX might not be the same speed demon but it would be a vastly better all around car IMO.
If I were int he market to lease a car and return it, i'd pound the shit out of one for 3 years.
Just the little one:
What's that thingy in the window Pat?
That's the lock-box 'cause the car was in for service. Not the first time, either, I'm afraid. Haha. Stupid Germans..
nice! what's with the keylock?
I've got other pics with the wheels clean and whatnot, next to my GSR in the driveway.. but they're not uploaded just yet.
I don't understand. What does it do ?
Im thinking its a box with the key to the car in it? Kinda like when a real estate agent shows your house while you arent home, they leave a key in a lock box at the house..
It's got the car key in it so the dealership can lock the car and keep one key to get them all open.
yeah service key i guess..
Well, I guess it's time for an SRT test drive!
Wanna roll up in your car or mine?
I wouldn't knock the SRT-4s. . . . I mean, price is a bit up there, but the things do boot! And, I hate it when people judge them based off of previous models. . . I mean, they've been making neons for almost 10 years now, and they have improved upon manufacturing techniques and design. Its a totally different design motor.
Come by my house tuesday afternoon after work...we'll go then!
Already beat you guys to it
Its impressive, has some serious snot to it, hate the seats though, but for 27,000 its a bargin, but still a neon. Not the neons are bad, just not my type of car. An ACR verison of this could do some serious damage on a road course.
Which dealer did you go to? Was it hard to get a drive?...assuming you seem interested in buying the car. Did the salesman go with you?
I know rob steele well, so i will let you guess where
Anyhow, steele chrysler will make a sales man go with you i bet.......
Werd. When I go with my father, they usually let us go alone.
Have to check out chrysler dealers tommorw....man...i never thought i'd be saying that with a straight face!
trust me you will be impressed. Now bare in mind the build quality sucks, but man its a bag load of fun burning tires off.
my friend just got a srt4 - nice and fast but its still a neon from inside
Right, and yours is still an Impreza on the inside.
Pretty much. An Impreza is just an AWD Japanese Neon... (small sedan in the economy class)
Dave, did you get my pm?
*cough* you mean like civics? *cough*
Exactely like Civics. You've got the right idea.
I don't understand the coughing though.... I don't think anybody who's posted in this thread has a Civic...
I was thinking the same thing, his *cough* comment went to one person who owns an RX-8 (is there a dash?) and another who owns a 328i, both of which have bespoke interiors of quite high quality.
Exactely. Not sure what he was getting at. (As for the dash, there is one on the back of the car, so I put in when I write it. )
... and yes, both vehicles do have unique and high quality interiors... and exteriors... and drivetrains... and have the correct wheels driving them as god intended.
How are you liking your experience on the German side, anyway?
The 330 was on my shopping list, but the only dealership in town (the next closest is an 18hour drive away) are such ass's that I couldn't be bothered dealing with them.
the *cough* is there b/c so many ppl think they're civics are hot shit when really they arent... it wasnt directed at anyone in particual either... just any person who reads this that owns a civic with nothing special done... not a personal attack and i know what type of cars both of you guys drive.
Dashy goodness. Just happened to take a pic of it Saturday.
