Ok, so I've been trying to avoid it for awhile saying I should just pay off my S2 first and just wait. But with my new tires, rims, and springs that will be waiting for me when I get home... I just found out that my loan was approved and will be waiting for me when I get off deployment this weekend as well.
I'm going shopping for an SVT!!!!
Yes sir and ma'am... So far I'm scheduled to go look at 2 SVTs in VA... one is black, one is blue, both are 11,200... with one having 21,000 miles and the other holding around 30,000. They're also both 2002s.
The blue has tinted windows and clear corners, and it MAY have an eibach suspension. The outside blue color is sexy... but it has the black/blue interior which I HATE.
The black one has the lower miles, but is mostly stock.. and a farther drive.
I'm going to look at them both, but it's such a tough decision.
Hopefully they're both still there.... or maybe I'll find something better.
It will be exciting either way.

I like my black/blue interior as well, but my car is black...so maybe it just seems overdone on a blue car (?)
Either way, good luck and enjoy. As far as mileage goes...both are still baby miles. I personally dont even think about them cause I am going to own the car till it completely dies anyway.
Have you seen the blue/black in person?
IMHO, next to the EAP Recaros, it's the only way to go. [;)]
go for the blue one... black cars get dirty... ALOT

Please, for the sake of the car, don't buy the Sonic Blue car only to rip out the seats and inserts... if you don't like it don't buy it, let someone who does like it get that car and get yourself the Pitch Black car.
I like the look, and it always gets compliments like "did it come this way or did you get that done custom?"

i've got a red ZX3 and the seat covers i bought are pretty much exactly like that except in Red/Black
if you paint the plastic trim around the dash and throw in some underdash neons it really finishes the look off

WD40's picture isn't the best picture of it IMO but i have the blue on blue and i love it. see it in person i'm sure you'll like it. i don't know of anyone that doesn't. BUT it's going to be your car get what you want.

Well that's why I want to look at them both. :)
It's really more about the car itself. The interior is one of the last deciding factors. I'm just really REALLY anxious.
I did take into consideration that I need to see it in person, I've seen the red/black when I drove a friend's SVT for a day. So who knows, maybe I will like it.

there ok. i like them b4 i got the car and now i hate them. it has gave me a bad back now. about a hour drive i have to stop get out and take a walk. i had to drive from tampa to daytona, and i wanted to throw those seat and use a lunch box for a seat. lol not really but still. the seat look good but long ride get a padding lol when i get more money again im getting something else. as of now the car has to get alot faster.
i like the blue one's better. one vote from me.

Nothing wrong with the red insert seats, they look just as good as the blue. The only thing I will concede is that interior trim looks way better painted in sonic blue, than it does if painted infra red.

Well I talked to the guy when I drove to Richmond today.
Talked him down $950 on his asking price, and got an extra $800 on my tradein than I expected. I'll be going to get it tomorrow.
I got the blue one. The interior isn't the color I Was expecting. IT really is a nice blue. Plus the windows are already darker than legal tint... looks very nice. :)
Oh man.. and my RIMS came in today, and the new tires should be here the day after tomorrow!!!
and my new clear turn signals and grill. YES! :D
It's gonna be a good few days for me! :)
