Re: 04s vs 06i Touring Buying Advise Please

Well I'll try to help as much I can. I have an 04 3s loaded. Absolutely love it and I drive it like hell. Before I put on my roof rack I'd get 29-31 mpg hwy. In the city I get about 24-25. Super fun. One thing for sure though I would get the TSB reflash. In cold weather the 04's will shift-shock from 1st to 2nd. That sucks in 10 below on the way to school after just waking up... really shakes you awake. Reflash might have already been done though.

My dad owns an 08 3i. He loves it. Incredible gas mileage and just enough pep to not make me antsy after driving my 2.3. I love both, I just love my 2.3 better haha

Note, both of ours are ATX
