Euro Items replaced with U.S. D.O.T. items : windshield, headlamp bulbs, cat. converter, and guage pod (so odometer would be in miles, not kilometers!)

:)
So why did you get rid of the header and put a shorty on? You could've gotten an SVT cat.

No ST170 valve cover...

No black coolant reservoir cover...

No oil pressure/temperature guages...

No SVT/ST170 front brakes...

Rear DRUM brakes...

No sunroof...

standard zx3 interior trim...

To be fully DOT compliant, the euro bumpers would have to be swapped...


So who's lying here, the guy you bought it from or you?

Good observation!!

Edit:
To add more:

No lock for the hood
No partial leather seats or full leather recaros (why downgrade?)

Would have been cool if it was a real ST170.
Still a nice car though...but why lie about it??

I think it was obvious enough in the first post that the car isn't a real ST170. Its just a nicely modded Euro-spec ZX3, but it definitely plays the part nicely going down the road. I like it! :)

And if you look at where it says what he drives:

2001 ST170

The ST170 was introduced in 2002 in Europe.

haha, i have a picture of that car from when the original owner had it. I believe he was a member of FF a while back, which is when i got. AWESOME car, but im not into buying someone elses creation. Id rather start from scratch, and do it myself.

However, i think i would take that car if i had the chance...lol
