I would agree what everyone else says about the V8 vs. the 200.  The V8 is
much more isolated.  Less rattles and noises even though it has 200K hard
miles and the 200 has 150K soft miles (but 1 good hit).

My V8 has a 5 speed.  It gets better MPG then the 200.  Feels quicker too.
And oh that sound!!!!!!!

>> insulation, "feel" etc.?
>> I want a 200q20v because the norwegian import tax on it is a lot lower

>> I have driven a '90 V8 a lot (I own one, but the import tax is not
