But it comes down to preference above all else. I think you'd be hard pressed to find a car for what I spent on mine with the stage1 tune that's as quick in a straight line and still really comfortable and gets good gas mileage.

Plus it's entertaining watching how different people talk about your car when it's something like a Viggen. There are always the 'meh just a Saab' people (who often change their mind once they get a ride) and then there's always one guy who ends up standing up for it. It's not something people see every day and definitely not something everyone knows about. People are quick to assume it's similar to a 1.8t GTI or something and makes 170hp. In reality, though, it's actually not painfully slow. Stock it was probably side-by-side with New Edge GTs. Now I figure I have to be at least 45hp over that. And that's low balling myself. Also torque.

But it comes down to preference above all else. I like it. I like that people often don't know about it. I like the fact that I pay dick all for insurance and drive a car that's not only fun to drive but also really, really safe. Just because it's FWD and has a chassis made of Jello doesn't mean it can't be a good car to drive on the street. I don't race my car. I never plan on racing it. Most people don't even know I have anything done to it. It's a stock viggen to most of my friends even. I don't like attention and people trying to race me all the time. I got that enough in the 3k.

Also holy **** why did I just type that all on my phone.
Why not just say your cars slow , but you didn't buy it for speed instead of typing all that ?

I should start coming in an hour later and staying an hour longer. 10:00 is a much more reasonable hour to start working.

I used to start working at 7:00am... Work was an hour away. Left the house around 5:40 every day. Miserable.

My new company said the doors are open from 6 am to 7 pm, just come in anytime between then and work 8 hours. I'll probably just do 8-5, maybe 9-6.

That's the way it is here, 36 hours, pretty much any reasonable time. Work a 10 hour day one day, work a 4 hour day the next.
