My bad guys, just thought it was strange to see a non performance vehicle with a performance part / setup. Made me do a double take.

Saw this car last weekend in Mexico, the cheapest one costs about 10,500 dlls. How much is a Honda Fit?

A Fit starts around 15.5k USD. A Sport with Nav can push 20k.

Its pricey compared to its competition but its well equipped stock (power convenience features etc.) while those are optional on other like models.

So cheap they left off the F? Looks like a shortened Mazda 3 hatch.

Anyway, my previous car was a Fit. LOVED that thing. Dropped a K&N air filter into the thing, and immediately felt a difference. Seriously? When you're improving upon 107 or whatever my 2007 had, every single little pony you add to the thing makes a difference. Alas... 'twas not meant to be. I have Selina now.

Oh boy....
not another "Is the GTI a sport car or not" thread...

He means the fit isn't so much focused on sport and performance as say our GTI is, so it shouldn't be rocking a CAI.
Correct me if im wrong OP lol

Great response and "yes" the GTI is a performance vehicle.
A great versatile all- arounder and a performance vehicle.
Might not measure up to what you think of as performance but it's a performance vehicle.
Read any review, but try Automobile mags first.
