Icon11 Would like your Input!

Ok so i currently have 4th gen but my sis is going to move in with us and she needs a car. So i started look around and found a 5th gen Auto. Here is where i would like some input. I'm thinking of giving her by BB4 S model and keep the BB6 for my self . Reason why want to is because i had looked at this car before for sale but the post was taken down and never got to talk to the guy when i had the money. The bad thing it has a tranny issue but i plan on fixing it and my sis doesn't come for another few months so in the mean time i can drive my 4th gen while i fix the other. Money on buying the car wont be an issue since my old man is paying for most of the car. I will only pay for portion of the car. in a way he is paying for my car and i am trading my car for 5th gen.

Re: Would like your Input!

confused, why not just get a 5spd 5th gen for yourself then and save the trouble of dealing with a faulty slushbox?

Re: Would like your Input!

Believe me i have looked for a 5spd but the only one that i found that was for sale was this BB6 which he wants $1800 but im sure i can take him down to $1500 from the pics that he has posted its a clean body and interior the only issue is the tranny. Price of parts aren't an issue since i can get them at work. And Labor isn't an issue either since my mechanic is practically family so he won't charge me an arm and a leg. Point being we are looking for a car for her and im trying to knock out two birds with one stone. She gets a car and i get a car. And in the mean time we will have an extra car incase one of are cars breaks down. we can simply relay on the third car.

Isn't an option remember i live in kansas. Bikes are useless in the rain and in the snow. And it has to be a DD.

Pretty much it but no slushbox. If i can't get it fixed then ill go Manual conversion and just swap everything out since i know that Automatic trannys are crazy expensive.

Re: Would like your Input!

My 5th is an auto. It needed a rebuild over a year ago. Since that day it has performed great. I love my car. If the tranny ever goes out again I will switch to a 5speed. But as of now it its perfect. And Ive added 25k miles sine the rebuild on the auto.

Re: Would like your Input!

Let me end this thread. By saying the guy ended up selling the car and removing the Post on CL. Guess its a sign that i should stick with my BB4
overall thanks for the input but i guess i will continue with my current build. Will post pics as soon as i can afford a camera
