    I also have a 3.23 rearend
    I'm sure the 2.73 would net you better mpg.

    On my sticker it says on the streets my car gets 19MPG and 23MPG on highway. Also depends on what is done to the car.

    I have had 3 TA's in my time a 79 auto, a 95 standard, and currently have a 00 auto ws6. I loved everyone of them equal, but from experiance if your old man wont buy you what you want just wait and get it your self. Let him buy you some eco-job and save your money, and when you can afford it. You will appreciate it alot more. But anyway back to your question the sticker when the car was new says 17 city and 25 hwy. My 2000 has 137,000 miles, its 100% stock and it still gets 22 mpg. You cant buy american muscle and expect great economy, however my 22mpg TA gets better fuel milage than my Nissan Titan. It really all boils down to, does your old man want you to have a good car or a cheap car. Get F-ed and be a part of history.

    When I was 17 I was pretty much in the same spot you are in. Here is 100% fact of what a ta get for gas milage. Took me a month and a half to get the permisson from my parents to let me buy one so good luck.....My choices were to super charge my 1996 blazer or get a LS1 thank god I went with the LS1 haha.

    yes stock gears 3:42 it is a convertible so that probably hurts mpgs a little. I don't drive them much though

    go with the M6.
    I'm not so sure about the 25mpg's though. When mine was stock it probably got close, but with the cam and 4.10's i'm getting considerably worse.
    Be careful with the car. I'm 16 and got a 98 T/A as my first car. Almost a year now and i've NEVER been pulled over...you just have to know when and where to have fun.

    dont let those people who flame on A4's sway your decision. i have a A4 in my TA, but my dad has a camaro with the M6. and i get to drive both of them all the time. i like my auto more for racing and just driving around town...makes it easier (shift kit an auto wether you stall it or not)
    but when i want to speed about town and drive for the heck of it i like the M6 more because your in complete control and its easier to show off in lol.
    my auto stalled and shift kit TA gets about 10..and when the pedal isnt threw the floor, i get about 20 mostly highway driving.

    ^ lol you just flamed the a4. your highway gas mileage is not much higher than my city. autos really need a stall to be fast and have better response but that greatly hurts your mpg. since your dad says it has to have good gas mileage, the a4 is out of question, especially if you want to modify your car.

    Ive heard of people who fool around with their injectors and can get high mpg, see if you can find someone local to you who is good with that.

    not sure how I flamed it, but whatever. autos are fine untill there stalled they still get great gas milage for what they are. if you plan on stalling it, then your dad might not be to happy with the mpg.
