Exact quote: 'In an effort to cut costs they now use a modified Opel engine.' Where does it say they use an Opel engine? It says modified Opel engine. So it isn't an Opel engine anymore. And if GM is in it's right mind, they should never ever make any of their brands use stock parts from the parts bin. Because everytime manafacturers did that it cot them their brand identity. Look at the stir Ford caused by using a ford switch in an Aston Martin DB7. That is simply not done. -- Mager
