K, let's see here. For it to be a "fair" comparison, we'd have to take MSRP pricing rather than dealership specials. Hell, I've seen a dealership here in Vegas selling 2001 Tibs for $14,000 with EVERY option.

Well the Sentra has more HP and Torque, but with a $800 more price tag. You could take that cash and get an exhaust and intake and get more power out of the Tibby.

Yeah, I saw few picture of Sentra SE-R which was codeveloped by those Skyline team. It looks very racy, and cool. Not sure if they changed the design since I last saw it...

SE-R? Speaking of the Skyline dev. team... if you gotta go Nissan might as well go for the gusto and wait for the R-35 Skyline next year .....<img src=icon_smile_tongue.gif border=0 align=middle>

guilty the mazda mp3 is a beautiful car also, but to my understanding it is hideously underpowered.

the mp3 is one of the few wagons i would drive, it looks so pimpish, like the wrx wagon. <img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle><img src=icon_smile_approve.gif border=0 align=middle>

Yeah the MP3 is the four door version. Comes with front and rear swaybars. Front strut brace. Full audio system with one 12 a mp3 player headunit. Short shifter, already has a hole in the engine compartment for cold air and some other goodies. Not bad for 18,000.<img src=icon_smile_shock.gif border=0 align=middle>

Kool turned out to be friendly comparison. I think they are pretty closely matched.
