in 96 and 97 the 3.5 v6 was now an option for the ESi.
Also, the Esi. Got the touring Suspension, and the Tsi. got a "sports" tune suspension with the option of performance package i believe.
The Eagle was suppose to be the more, Euro touring type car out of the LH Three.
I have a Esi, But it dosnt go by the play books, I have ABS, 4 wheel Disc brakes and 16 inch tires along with power options also and remote entry.
Which I hate.....Stock ESi Rims.
