HEre are my 2 options.. Sell my sol for a new car.. or engine swap and body kit, repaint whole car... I dunno i kinda need a little more room now.. Im in college... Here are my mods to my sol.. I wonder what i could get for it...

1995 Honda Del Sol si SOHC VTEC Engine
Milage: 101,500miles

Injen Intake
Custom 2.25" exhaust
Custom 4-1 Headers

Body:
Red emblem in back
Custom Gen 1 taillights painted 70/30

Suspension:
15" White Kosei K-1 rims on nitto 4xx tires
Ground control adjustable coilovers
Koni Red adjustable shocks

Interior:
5in monster tach from autometer
Indiglow gauges
Razo shift knob and pedals

cons: Rip in driver seat, front bumper NO emblem and scracthed up where the emblem is supposed to be... other than that.. the normal dings from a 1995 car..

Any idea on what i can get on this? oh and BTW im thinking about a lot of different choices for my new car... please dont hate

2000-2002 VW gti 1.8t
1999-2000 Civic Si
1997-2000 Prelude

for some reason im leaning more towards the VW.. only b/c i can make it a REALLY good sleeper and it rides really nice.. german cars are pretty good actually.. oh man.. im gonna get flamed for saying that. haha

why dont you just buy a really cheap beater for now......that way you can save the sol.... and keep some miles and dings off of it.

VW's COOL!

I'm a Honda fan, but go for the best you can, IMO. That's why
I'm for Honda's :). VW's have better torque, though, and have
you seen there new RS?! But, we've had alot of "v-dubs"
in our "clan", and I still think Hondas are "tops".

matter if it's a bit on the small side... im a lil bias cus i barely got

my sol and i love it... do the engine swap and keep it ... cus u

wont' get much for a sohc that has 100+ k on it anyways...

hmm.. but u can try... yeah, do that, see how much u can get for
