The thing is, I don't want a boosted car for a DD. Like the complexity of a boosted car over an NA is insane. Like so many more issues. I wanna keep it simple. But, the turbo's SS's are freakin' fast for what they are.

I had one before this car.

I'd love one as a DD. but the supercharged one is simple, and costs too much to modify for little gain. so thats why I chose it lol

I can feel the pain of wanting NA for a DD. I did that with the wife... I wanted to get her a WRX so I could play with it a little too. But then I was like, I already know the night of things that need replaced and these cars aren't the most fun to work on.

That's said, my DD is boosted, but it's a diesel. They're a good bit more reliable and "dumb" on a way. The ease of a diesel in my case is made significantly more complex by being a Mercedes... And emissions bullshit, which I've bypassed most of anyway.

If the price inflation for a diesel wasn't so much I would have highly considered it. But, lol, they're so expensive.
