right... I guess I'm usually in the car when operating the blinkers, I forgot that they are integrated into the HID light cluster.

hey Mr CP! how's the new ride? how is the driving dynamic compared to the modified zx3?

I've had my car for 1.5 years now and still have a grin on my face after carving through a series of corners. Entrance ramps... empty parking lots... lift off oversteer... fun fun!

The suspension is about perfect, I want to lower it for aesthetics... I'm trying to find a lowering spring / strut / shock combo that will drop it about 1.5" but retain a descent ride. Might be an impossible task, but I'm looking. I'm amazed at how smooth this engine pulls from 2000rpm and up. My last car with this much power was a turbo, so I'm used to peaky power. I feel like I'm driving a luxury car. My ZX3 was stripped, this SVT is loaded. The seats are f'ing comfortable!!! I'm very happy with the purchase (at least I will be once I get a valve cover gasket on it and the oil leak stopped)! I'm beginning to hate the smell of burning oil at stop lights.

Oh, I learned that you can blow by Honda Civics in 5th gear at 130mph

yeah... the cops appreciate that too. you can run with some pretty fast cars with the SVTF, and no I don't mean hondas. the EAP is the best of the lot fer sher! but handling is the strong suit. It always takes a few months to really get comfortable with a car... once you do, this car is truly rewarding.

Have fun with it!
