    Maybe you should actualy read up abou it, insted of bashing it. There are alot of innovative features on the car, not found on the compitition, such as direct injection.

    unfortunatly most of the "experts" here would disagree, however they also don't know what the fuck they are talking about.

    I've test drove the new solstice, I wasn't really impressed. I didn't fit all that well but I didnt like the NB miata (i currently own one and love it) when it first came out either.

    4g63 is port fuel injection, and so are the 2.4 and 3.8 ltr engines. :rolleyes:

    do you even know what direct fuel injection is?

    more aggressive styling on the Sky i think. The soltice is a little too bubblely.

    so have GM and Audi, but so far GM is the only one to bring it to the US market for mass produced engine.
    also The last generation of Eclipse didn't have direct injection.
