    The LSC (Luxury Sport Couple) has a painted grill and trim versus the base models chrome. The LSC has dual exhaust and 290hp. Base model doesn't and has 280hp. LSC has 3.27 rear gears versus the base models 3.07 gears. Theoretically the LSC is a little quicker. But I think the differences are minor.

    they are neither true dual but it is good for 10hp (280-290). If you are going aftermarket exhuast later it won't be an issue

    thanks for all the replies.


    what kind of fuel economy do these cars get?
    do you have to use premium gas?

    you get anywhere from 14'sh to 34'sh I like to floor it in city driving, so i get 14.7 usuially, that is like flooring it all the way to the rev limit, if you drive normally, its about 20-24 if your realy nice on the gas, its like 24. highway is good. It can be about 34 at the best for me.

    you can use any gas for the car, its got a knock sensor which retards the timing so that you can run 87 octane if you just dont have that extra 2-3$ in your pocket. it recomends...91? 92...somthing, but i usuially use 89.

    98, i dont think this is an issue, but if you look for a 97 or earlier....definatly check out for a slip on the first gear and all that. when you drive, dont shock the gas, give it very very tiny gas, and let it try to slip.
