    Wait for the 05 model. Upgraded hp and 19" wheels.

    "not mod friendly"?

    Depends on how deep your pockets are. Things are intake and exhaust aren't going to give you any significant increase in power. If you want to go faster, you'll need to go FI or get a different car.

    Also, I don't agree with the "con" list above.

    The 2005 model will not perform better. It has a slightly higher redline and 18 more HP, but 10 less torque and +75 lbs of curb weight. The OEM rods in the VQ are fucking terrible. If you don't rebuild the bottom end, you will be driving for less than 60k miles, if that. Of course, then we are talking ridiculous sums of money.

    The nav system is good. Not as nice as Acura's, however.
