Looks good! I didn't mind losing a/c til summer hit here lol. I'm going to figure out some way to get it back in there eventually but mine is slightly more complicated than most lol

thanks guys, it does look very well kept but the guy said his wife paid 180$ to get it detailed. i think he got it detailed to make people exited how clean it is and forget about anything else and just buy it, because i drove it 300 miles home and a cel popped on for cat converter which im sure he reset the ecu.

here are some more pictures






and i decided to change it up from blue gauge lights to green and i love it, my glowshift gauges have 7 colors so i will have matching green gauges and climate control here soon





also here is my coupe for anyone who hasnt seen it yet, was an awesome car not one problem in 4 years that left me stranded. was super clean beside the paint and a few dents but my sedan is so much nicer in every way

Got my manifold and oil feed / return from goautoworks, he made me a special kit because I wanted an all black feed firewall kit and return. All I need now is downpipe and a tune, thinking I will use my y5 tune as my basemap for my y8.

I wouldnt know from experience lol but boost is great and ac is nice (ive never had working ac in a car) so im assuming boost+ac=sex lol. Hopefully in a month I can have this together, I just sold my rods and had to buy new plug wires. Hopefully plug wires are whats causing my car to make weird noises and I dont need a new motor or something

Hell ya.
You can show off your car to her all day long but if she starts to get hot. Then no hanky Panky for you. And if you mess up your girls hair it's over lol.

But yea it's like having a factory boosted car. Cold ac and power at your foot.

Ya the coupe was nice when I first got it but owning it for 4 years and putting alot of miles on it it had some cosmetic flaws. I loved the spoiler and I have thought about putting it on my sedan but idk, ive seen sedans with the tall spoiler but not sure if I like it, seems to be cleaner without one though? As soon as I get the turbo on this car I probably wont do much more since im buying a house, maybe a lip and si grill.
