depends on what your interested in. If you want to modd it you need 00 or 01. if you want updated and newer get like 03 or 04. I woudl say 01 is best for modding. Gets all the kinks out of the 1st year, doesnt have rev limiter of 02, and doenst have DBW of 04. Just my 2cents

if you want to turbo...then get a GT
if you want to go NA, then you want an 00 or 01 GTS with PFC because it will not work on 03 and up GTS
if you want an all around car to love, then 03 and 04 are nicest with teh black interior and little refinements

then you should get an 03 or 04 GTS, it'll be perfect and you'll love it

i think WW and kam sides are pretty even, kam probably being a few tenths of an inch lower.

DBW = Drive By Wire, it means instead of having a throttle cable, it's controlled electronically. It's good, as in you get better throttle response. But, you cannot get the Power-FC Chip. It's not compatible.
