I give up. SVT here I come.

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.

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

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.
