    personally i think id go the engine route, but all depends on what you use it for, if not keen on engine the interior would be my next choice as it just doesnt match the exterior,
    so in short if you happy with the power then the interior, if not then engine

    I like ICE so is normally the first thing I do when I get a car, but power is also good. So ICE or engine IMO.
