OEM+ at best. Want to keep it presentable.

Kill switch, snow tires and a pair of long-range driving lights. That should about do it.

You could easily get away with a clean front lip/ air dam that keeps it looking stock and oem+ that little bit. Wheel spats can be made and stay damn near invisible too.

It's got a pretty aero front bumper to begin with.

Do I get ecomodder cred for the stock instant MPG gauge?



Not doing Bonneville hub caps unless I lower it. And I'd love to lower it. $$$

Probably not doing much of anything until spring.

(And no, I'm not starting a new thread until the car's sitting in my driveway)

Wow, 12 pages of this bull****

So the chick from whom I was buying the BMW sold it without telling me. We had a deal, set up a time, everything. I was livid.

Probe is still pissing me off. Someone buy it. I want something RWD and not annoying.

Well, that is one let down
Now you can consider buying a Fiat 126p (I'm not sure it falls into the "not annoying" category though ). Shipping will be tricky too

Hehe, I'd rather import an Autozam AZ-1.

Tomorrow I'm checking out a peanut butter colored '92 Geo Metro that looks to be pretty much rust free.

I've seen some pretty cherry Metros, in amongst all the beaters. Maybe they respond well to being garaged?

Good luck.
