Agreed. The high pressure Mitsu turbo on the 4 is a great combo. Didn't the 6 have a timing belt? The 4 has a long lived chain if premium oil like Mobil 1 full synth 0w40 was used. I don't like belts on an interference fit engine due to risk of breakage and the extra cost/time of maintenance. The aero suspension may also not be the greatest choice if the roads in your area are bumpy/pot holed. It tends to be a rib bruising, lower back breaking experience, especially with low profile tyres. On smooth rides, a delight if handling is a higher priority on your decision matrix.
