Nope silver wheels.

I cleaned it up really nice and put a front lip on it tonight. So if it's nice tomorrow I'll take some pics.

Pat, I've been comparing your reports to observed conditions and they don't match at all.

It's cold and there aren't any waves.

Precisely why you buy the related diag equipment. Like I said, GT-1 or even the new MOST bus programmer is available for around 2k on the grey market. I'll be picking on up eventually, because I anticipate needing access to to it when folks who I know with one may not be available.

If you are keeping a car for 5-10 years(our plan with the 530xiT)...a 2k dollar investment is pretty small. Especially when that tool can be used on other cars you may own. It's really not bad.

Looks great, Jeff! I like the front end - nice to not see the big, fugly fog lights you see on some of those.

How many miles does it have?

I rode in that car today. Pretty damn quick (once it spools). Sounds like a race car.

You bought a modded car? How long do you plan on keeping it?
