Call your insurance company, and find out which one will be cheaper to insure. If one costs $20 per month less to insure, that's money towards audio equipment.

I would pick the Optra for a couple reasons: one, its has 40000KM on it; two, its not as common a vehicle as the Protege.

It's also not a terrible looking car. It definitely needs some aftermarket rims, tinted windows, and a lip spoiler or something.

As far as audio system potential, perhaps find out the stock speaker sizes, determine the alternator output, and which vehicle will accept a new unit the "easiest".

That's all I can think of right now.

I personally would reccommend the Mazda, its a far more solid and reliable car then the daewoo built optra 5 whch is basically a throw away car. If money is not a big deal though then may I also recommend taking a look at the Toyota matrix or Honda fit, both are excellent products with good track records and both are hatches.

I would be all over the Mazda as well, from a install point it is a nice car to work in and they sound great.

find a lower mileage mazda 5. More aftermarket coverage, better build quality. faster, handles better, takes abuse better.
