That sounds like the best way to do it.

I enjoy both base and S, but for driving twisty back roads I don't need the added power of the 3.2. Just going out for the fun of driving - running through the gears and hearing the engine sounds from 4,000 rpm up - my 1997 2.5L was the best. For a long drive to get somewhere, I choose the '04 S.
