3.73 or 4.10's?

I'm trying to debate whether to get 3.73's or 4.10's in my V6 automatic convertable. It's a daily driver, I don't do much highway, prolly 80% city, 20% highway. I'm stuck! Help me out! Backup your opinions!

It just depends what you want from your car I think. In your case with 80% city driving, 4.10s should be fine. If you want to run it in a 1/4 or 1/8th mile, yes definitely 4.10s, I put 3.73s in my GT because I really don't intend to drag race it, and I wanted it to be a good all around car with acceptable gas mileage. Its all in what you want.

Gas milage

Only gas milage difference i'd think would be a little bit on the highway, but I think it depends on how fast your driving.
