"The 4.5 L VH45DE featured variable valve timing, also known as VTC, from 1990 until 1995. This was due to the "Gentleman's Agreement", requiring all imports to produce no more than 280 hp. Nissan got around this by publishing the hp rating without VTC, meaning its actual power rating is closer to 310 hp and 330 lb·ft. of torque. Due to tightening emissions regulations in the US market, the VTC feature was dropped from the 1996 Infiniti Q45. In the following year, the VH45DE was no longer available in any US market vehicles. The engine continued on in the Japanese market until 2002 in the Nissan President limousine."

CRX vs. MX-5

After deep consideration, I've weeded out other contenders. It's down to either a second gen CRX or a first gen MX-5. They are similar in power and handling, and while the CRX is more practical, I am partial to the roadster styling, though the retro rex is sexy in it's own way.
Money is not an issue, I just happen to like the styles and characteristics of the models presented. Talk to me /o/, which would you prefer? Any pros/cons you would like to share?

ok so, my car has been freakin out lately. when I go to start it sometimes, the battery will come on and make the radio/lights/ac work, but when i try to crank it, it doesn't make a sound, (no "click,click,click,click")
So i dont think it would be the battery, i thought it would be the starter. so I went to advanced auto parts to do a bettery/starter/alternator test and they said it was my battery. here's the printout for the test
measured 424 CCA
rated 700 CCA
temp 72 F
Return AUTH. code: h0rrr
voltage 10.54 V
>charging system test
no load - 14.60 V, 2.4 a
loaded - 14.49v, 1.7 A
So are they tellin the truth or what? It doesn't not-start maybe one a week, but today it wouldn't turn on for about 2 minutes. all the lights and radio turn on when i try it but the engine/starter/battery doesn't make a sound when trying to crank
