i dunno man, i was in the same dilemma as you. i have a 94 gsx with 144,000 on it. and i've defintiely fixed it from what it was. i bought it from some guy that treated it like shit and tried to turn it into a ricerocket (neon lights, purple flames, and big muffler tip) it doesn't have any of that anymore and now has a 16g turbo. but everything seems to go down the shitter with it. so i made the decision to start over. i just bought a 92 tsi awd with only 69,000 on it and everything is sooo much nicer. even down to the automatic seatbelt and unlocking the car with the key. i recommend buying something newer. or in my case older with less miles. because i'm very very happy. and it only cost me 900 dollars.
