Ragnar - I do not have the navigation system. However, my dad has an S430, and has the navigation in his. I can tell you that it works very well for him...and he has no trouble finding small/hidden roads in neighborhoods.

3ptmiller it has the AMG engine with I think arround 300 hp. I dont really know. It is pretty fast. Oh and it is terrible on gas. It has a 20 gallon gas tank and you can watch the needle going down as you drive it.

Skyfire. Ironically if I lived in a big city I would not own a car at all. I would be just fine in NY or Philly just taking Taxi's I love cars as you can see but I hate to drive in everyday traffic. :shrug:

How do you like the Ion?

Besides the drip panel flying off the first day I got it(last week), it has been good. I really haven't driven it that much because of the cracked windshield and the drip panel flying off on 70. Personally, I would recommend a different company. I have been very displeased with the way Saturn has treated me.

FBI LAUNCHES RAID ON SATURN COMPOUND

ABILENE, TX -- After 47 tense days, the standoff between Federal Bureau
of Investigation agents and members of the Saturn Family was finally
broken Monday when an FBI strike team invaded the Saturn compound and
seized 23 cars with their owners inside.

Agents also captured Mark Schechter, evangelistic car dealer and
self-described "Father of the Saturn Family," who offered agents good
deals on trade-ins upon capture, but has yet to surrender any
information on activities inside the compound.

"At Saturn, we're a different kind of car company," a handcuffed
Schechter said as FBI officials led him away from the scene.

According to reports, shortly before 7 a.m., following a night of the
FBI's blaring Three Dog Night's "Joy To The World" over loudspeakers,
heavily armed agents posing as customers burst into the compound, where
they met with little resistance.

"They were real nice, not pushy at all," said Kurt Harwood, one of the
FBI agents. "They let me walk around and look at whatever I wanted
without pressuring me or giving me the 'hard sell.' Fortunately, we
were able to overcome them before they could 'answer any questions' that
we had."

Saturn owners captured in the raid are being flown to Washington, D.C.,
where they will be interrogated by FBI psychiatric profiling teams
before being deprogrammed for reintroduction to mainstream society.

"They welcomed me warmly, as if I actually was a member of their
family," recalled a visibly shaken young woman identified only as
"Julie," one of the car owners rescued in the FBI raid. "After I bought
my Saturn SL-1, there was a ceremony involving the setting of the
dashboard clock, during which Mr. Schechter introduced me to the other
family members and announced that it was my first new car. Everyone
kept asking me if I was 'excited.'"

"Then," Julie continued, "the other owners started advancing upon me
slowly, wearing happy, vacant looks. They seemed almost transfixed with
joy. Mr. Schecter took a Polaroid of me. When it developed, they took
it to a bulletin board full of similar photos. I recognized several of
the faces as those of people around me. Then I realized -- they weren't
going to let me leave."

On day 11 of the standoff, Julie attempted to flee through a restroom
window while she was supposed to be changing into the white linen
raiment emblazoned with the Saturn logo which is used in the
paperwork-signing ceremony of initiates. She was, however, caught and
returned to the main showroom.

Julie's attempted escape was detected by FBI intelligence, and a
rapid-response team arrived on the scene shortly afterward. But by that
time the compound had been sealed off, and large, orange "Closed For
Inventory" signs greeted agents at the door.

It was not until Monday that the woman was finally freed. "Reliability
and service are nice, but at what cost?" Julie said. "I will not trade
my soul for fiberglass side panels."

Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms raids on smaller Saturn
dealerships in Idaho and Montana have produced evidence that activities
similar to the ones described by Julie have been taking place across the
country.

"We are pursuing several leads at this time," ATF director John Magaw
said. "But we do know for a fact that the Saturn family has already
infiltrated the fabric of our society to a startling degree. My sister
owns one. My brother-in-law owns one. This thing is spreading."

Rumors currently being investigated by the ATF include accounts of
ultra-zealous Saturn delivery-truck drivers and sightings of a red sedan
painted with mysterious occult markings, driven by a man wearing a black
satin Saturn jacket.

Reports of Saturnic rituals at a Northern California compound, involving
the burning of the Sign of Saturn into the foreheads of new owners, are
also being investigated.

Saturn, a division of General Motors, has been under close FBI
surveillance since the company was founded in 1990. The company
frequently holds secret, dealer-sponsored barbecues at which new Saturn
owners are further introduced to the mysteries of Saturn ownership, the
most famous of which are held by a high-ranking Saturn family member
known as "Russ."

The company also holds annual "reunions" which are marked by mass
pilgrimages of Saturn family members from across the world. According
to FBI files, some Saturn owners find the car-buying experience so
satisfying that they apply for and are sometimes accepted as
salespeople. Some eventually attain the honored rank of "dealer," but
only after hundreds of hours of serving Saturn.

"Thank goodness for the FBI," said Andrea Aberg, another rescued Saturn
owner. "Next time I'm buying a Honda."

I had an '87 MR2 also. Fun car to drive until I blew the engine in it. Then the rebuilt one died about 6 months after it was put in. Beware of Hayward Toyota. Bad people. I drive a Civic now. Nice for commuting since I do about 45 miles round trip every day.

The appearance of the car is bone stock minus the gold rims and tinted windows.

I like to pull up next to people with "sports cars" or "Ricers" because they think V6 stangs are slow...which they are but mine has a little work done under the hood :devil:

Lots of bolt-ons, H/C and some other goodies including forged internals to protect my engine from the boost of the M90 supercharger.

I love the looks on peoples faces after they get SMOKED by my sleeper 350+ rwhp V6 stang.
