Importance of Options

Ok we all know options are important, but which are more important then others? GM ussually doesn't let you pick and choose, along with most other car companies. So out of the options I'm gonna list, put them in the order
that is most important to you, add any that I forgot. The initial list is going to be my order of importance.

The Beretta came with the 3.1L and 5 speed in the early or mid 90's. Whatever tranny that is, that's the one. GW

My sis had one of those, the tranny was made by Isuzu or something I think.

Yeah if you could get around the obd II codes being set and computer controls etc etc and mount a clutch pedal in there somehow... Not looking to be worth the effort.

Seperating the tranny and the motor was a great idea, if it werent for the hump running down the center this would be great for all cars.

The 1988 Cavalier Z24 I used to own had the Munci 5-speed, very nice tranny, solid/fast shifts. It was mated to a 2.8, but same mounting as the 3.1 and the 1990+ Isuzu tranny. I even shortened the shifter 2". But I did go through 3 shifter cables because I liked to "power shift" it when racing. That is, leave accelerator matted and only tap the clutch, punching into 3rd was the killer, really hurts your fingers when you jam them between the shifter and the stereo. ;)

Would be more then putting a turbocharger kit on the car, which is what I'd rather, and might do.

Define "important". Do you mean important from a "want/preference" standpoint? Or, important from a safety/function standpoint?
From a function/safety standpoint --------------------------------- o ABS (which is debatable) o Rear window defogger o Exterior temperature readout o Heated mirrors o Traction Control o Side Air Bags o All wheel drive, where available o OnStar or similar product/service
From a preference standpoint ---------------------------- o Air Conditioning o Cruise Control o Optional larger than standard engine o Nice to have but not critical - Power windows/locks - Remote keyless entry - full size spare tire - trip computer - satellite radio - tilt steering wheel - 8-way power driver seat
Not "important" -------------- o A radio that turns itself louder the faster the car goes (the feature can be disabled on GMs, if anyone else even has it) o CD/Tape player o RDS type radio o premium sound o Heated seats/leather seats o fog lights o Automatic headlight control and daytime running lights (the feature cannot be disabled on GM's like it can on others) o alloy wheels o spoiler (looks stupid anyway) o Alarm
