Re: New Car

EL will go harder and prob be in better condition but you dont sit as low in a ef/ef as you do in a eb/ed

Re: New Car

They're both similar price?

Go the EL for sure! MUCH better value for money. More reliable, more refined, not as old, presumably less kms, presumably better condition, etc etc etc

Re: New Car

Hello,

I would go for the EL, I think they look better. They have an airbag, a stronger front sub-frame and the motors more reliable and more grunt.The interior doesnt look like a Granpa's car either.

Re: New Car

Personally, I prefer the EA-ED interior (despite the EF-EL interior being more modern, more refined, etc), but that's just me.

Not a fan of the GL/GLi interiors though! Luxo all the way hehehe
