Probably not. I have to start saving up for college, so I couldn't afford to go. It would be awesome though!

I didn't do too much. Just some pics of my finished rims, my sub, and some cf things I did. The dash was a bit difficult to wrap though. I had to take it off and then it took about two hours to complete. The curves were pretty difficult to do, but a heatgun really helped.













I am planning to sell the car in the spring though.

I need something with a little more.... power haha

Well I'm hoping to get around 2500 or so for the car. And I have no idea how much the rims are worth. I'm going to sell those separately. I'm hoping to get around $3000 total. Then I'll save up a grand or so, and try to find a nice rwd car. I'm thinking any mustang with a v8, but not the 90's model, or any camaro v8, also not 90's model.

Eeeeh. The 110hp really kills it for me. And I want to sell it before I break something (clutch.) With how I drive it, something is bound to go soon.

As for cleanliness, the paint has shine, but there's soooo many swirls in it. I tried using some things to remove them the other day, but it just made it much worse. It's gotten to the point where when I look at my car, all I see is the swirls.

But again, the power just doesn't do it for me. I've lost to minivans, old old tauruses, and junker trucks. Other than that, I love the car. Love the 5 speed manual, good fuel economy even when I drive it like I stole it, and that it handles pretty well.

haha you are doing something wrong then, sure its not powerful but that just means you have to be more precise off the line... with my old 5spd i could beat a couple diesels until i hit 3rd gear, also kicked an s10 blazers ass when he had a new motor in it.... zetec swap yours! that would be epic and for headlight yeah im pretty much getting yours but they will be lightly tinted... cut your stock intake thing out like this


gives it more airflow for sure and a throatier sound at wot
