My dilemma is do I buy a 1.9 or a 2.8.
Understand that I've never actually driven a 1.9, but I'd definitely go with the 2.8 if I could.
Hits against the 1.9:
- Kind of slow, especially for a flashy roadster
- Agricultural exhaust note
- Plain Jane interior on the early models
Hits against the 2.8:
- More expensive
- Lots of torque so you don't shift as much
I think that last one is kind of lame, but that's what the 1.9 supporters say...
