the SPI is often called a "ticking time bomb". i've heard of them dropping seats anywhere from 50k-220k. even if they are maintained properly, they can blow up, for example TheGlassMaker's car.

funny story, there is a dealership here with a horrible reputation. they had a white sedan i went to look at. it had an SPI with 160k. they were asking 2295, and he had another buyer. i told him i'd give him $750 for it, because i'm aware of that engine and it's failure. he said if the car didn't sell in 2 weeks, he would take my offer. but someone bought it for full price. poor guy.

anywho, back on topic. is this car for winter or something? i think any SVT wheels look good on the sedans.
i don't really know the difference from the "ZTS" or "SE" and all those models. i just think of them as sedans lol.

edit: my bad, his car doesn't have SVT wheels, but they look similar.
