SRT-4 - went to check it out



We went to test drive the srt-4 , but they had none outside...
the guy said, you add $800 to the base price, and they give you the benz 300HP motor...
i think its a good deal..personally i think its a great car for the price...but when i sat inside (yeah the seats were fine) but the ****ing radio is from the 95 neon..nothing is really updated...the hood intake...HAS NO HOLE..its plastic closing just like the friggen mustangs ...what are your guys opinions on the srt-4?

In case you didnt know Mini and European Neon 1.6l share exactly the same engine.
Neon 2.0l is built at the same factory in Mexico.

BMW and Chrysler signed a contract with Mexican company to build those engines for them

Yahoo buddy, Yahoo.
You can do a search on this board too, we had that discussion about a year ago.

BMW and Chyrsler signed a joint contract with Brazilian company.
I know it is weird, but it is true.
My bro owned a Neon before, when we went to check out the Mini and opened the hood we were surprised that the engines looked identical.

We asked, is this a Neon engine. They said NO NO NO, are you crazy? It is all BMW engine. Then we did some research.
And facts came out on surface.

there's way too much confusion here, first Mercedes owns Chrysler, second the SRT-4 is a 2.4L Turbo, the engine came from Chrysler, not Mercedes or BMW
