In Reply to: Survey: Sport Package yes/no & YOUR AGE (more) posted by Keith S on October 08, 1999 at 07:22:47:
: Like others I've been reading this board for months. Can't seem to get the trend on the sports package. I'll be buying soon (sedan) and currently am inclined to go w/sports package. But, the occasional thread about the harsh ride scares my 46 year old body a bit. Thought with a few responses I can get the "picture" on the sport option and make sure it will not be a mistake for my mid life crisis vehicle.
I ordered the non sport but changed to the sport due to comments on this list. ( age 63) If you cant decide, order the sport. If it arrives and you decide after driving it that the ride is too harsh, there are two things that you can do. #1. Trade the tires for a set of 205's and a brand that has been reviewed as having a softer ride by Eddie's tire rack and/or Consumer Reports (upcoming issue). #2. According to a local customizer, there are people out there who want to upgrade from a standard to a sports suspension (but not the other way around), so you can work a swap with them and the only charge will be the labor!
