what year 240sx is the best?

im planning on selling my sentra and getting a 240sx. one of my friends told me that 91 is the best year. is it any different than the other years? and i saw a 2000 240sx for like $2000, is that a bad year? are the newer ones slower?

thanks,
scott

As far as I know there are no year 2000s. I think last year is 98. Get an s13, better looking.

got a link to it? I'm just curious what someone is trying to pass off as a MY2000 240SX since the S14 died in 98...

I think the '91s are the best, if you are thinking stock from the box. Slightly hotter (and i mean just slightly) cams than '92-'98, and better lookin' than the pig-nose '89-'90. And yet it still has the sleek look that I love about the S13s.

Of course I suppose i'm also slightly biased...

Yup,the s13 is the best one mainly cuz' it's lighter.Thats what I read.I dont know the actuall weight but,that should be easy to find.I preffer the looks of the s15.It just depends on what u will be using it for looks or performance.

s13's look way hotter than s14. yes the 91 had slightly better cams but its virtually un noticable. just find a well kept s13. years 89-93

The s13 is lighter then the s14 But only by like 180lbs. I have a 1993 s13 but am going to sell it for a s14, the s14's look like a little better and provide the same peformance without as much understeer. Anyway, Both cars are nice, it all depends on what you want to do.. if you want to race all the time then go for the s13 but if you wan't something to drive on the weekends and everyday cruising then buy the s14...

ive only owned 92 S13's. same cams as the 91, but the car usually has less miles on it. Id get a 93 if I could find a saphire blue SE hatchback. I love that color.

1991 RMS13-- DD; Slushbox, bad paint, and dents
1992 CS13-- Getting overhauled for WMD status.

I personally like the 89-90 (Pig Nose) but thats me, and I pretty much would take any year 240 based off style alone.

If I where to buy a new 240 what i would look for would depend on 2 things. One is how often i would be driving, and what kind of driving i would be doing.
For a car to drive to work, and race on the weekend i would take the cheaper but still solid S13. If it was a car for around town driving i would rather have the newest car i could get so 97 or 98.

If i where to get the S13 i would get the coupe base off slightly lower weight, slightly better weight split, and slightly stiffer chase then compared to the hatch. Dont get me wrong i love my hatch, but i also own a 93 coupe base model that will become the car that gets modded because it is a better base (at lest for me) to begin with.

So my recommendation is get what you light and can afford

I have a 91 240sx, And i love the S13 chassis and just the plain looks of it are great. You can mount aftermarket fog lamps real easy and they look real nice. Considering if you can find a real well kept car.. Mine was in prestine condition, and all trouble areas were properly fixed before i purchased so I am real happy with my car. Make sure the rad and cooling system is good cus without that your screwed. Mine was solid. I paid 3500 dollars canadian for it. now consider this its got 313,000 original miles on this engine and tranny, and it runs like a dream. So if you go with an S13, make sure its well maintained and be willing to put the time and money into it and it'll last you like you wouldnt believe! Cheers man and keep on driving.
