well to start, im new here so bare with me a bit. i was comparing the whole sport compacts click together (the chevy cobalt, the dodge neon srt-4, the acura RSX type-s and the slightly tamer honda civic si) although the SRT-4 is the closest competitor here, im not a fan of turbo chargers as they require a little more attention to oil pressure, temperatures, and can be pricey to maintain and repair. more so than superchargers of course. we get alot of ss's here in b'more as well, fox chevy had 6 on the lot collecting dust. i test drove it of course and i liked it alot. i couldnt find any SRT-4's to test drive so my question is this, if i do buy the ss, am i selling myself short?? i loved how refined the engine was, more refined than my fathers mini cooper and thats supposed to be a premium compact with a capital p!! it was raining during the test drive and this car has one of the best ABS systems ive ever used. i wish it had traction control or all seasoned tires because all it did was slip and slide during the 1.9 mile test drive. the steering to me was excellent, not once did it feel numb of disconected, i enjoyed its light effort during parking maneuvers and on center feel during 40 mph sprints. however i do need to know this. the fixed mast antenna on the fender has gotta go, are their any after market companies that would put it on the roof in front of the sunroof? like on the ford focus.
