thanks for the compliments. its been really good since 1st day we got it. a few minor lil suspension pieces, but we live in michigan with winter and potholes, so its normal. i myself have put over 500 miles on it.... since we've gotten the car, not since i got my liscence, that would be alot. under 10k miles on it in the past yr, so im happy

That's pretty good.. I myself have kept my SHOs mileage down to under 4K in the last year.. not to say I hardly drive it though.

ok... now a few months later, i have 104k on the car.
just did aluminum subframe bushings, endlinks, and tranny mount. so that brings my vehicles modding expense up around 2700 total or so. with a long way to go. might be getting some more parts REALLY soon.
when i was in florida i removed the front banner. but will have something else up in springtime.
here are some pics of the winter rims, and fixed links for the pics with the 17s, and 1 shot from the ABC world news day.
