Tint is going to be coming soon..

Supposedly I'm averaging 17mpg with city driving. I'm not all to easy on it (1, its a new to me car, and 2, its got a decently nice sounding exhaust). I do know its getting slightly worse gas mileage then the Regal though, and I beat that car like it stole my gf.

Nothing a tune (after a cam install?) couldnt help. :ph34r:

Correct, Silva had also a black/red theme while this car has a black/yellow theme. I want an Inferno hood though..

I believe the old owner was either on here, or ClubGP (maybe both) because I remember the car from pictures I saved on my Laptop (which are gone thanks to the harddrive taking a dump).

True, Bob, I forgot about that.

Thanks guys, The dealer wanted 14k for it.. I managed to get them down to 13,250, with TTL. Not including trade in, and down payment. It has 59k miles, and a 3 year 36k mile warranty (Extracare Plan), which I'm going to try not to void..?? or something like that.

I doubt it the 04+ are notorious for wierd starting issues. At first we thought it was an 04 thing but even the 05/06 guys have some minor issues. Oh yeah cant forgot about rough idle problems too.

If you ever want to see the headlight brackets (update) just let me know and when your in the area you can take a look.

Its pretty well documented about how bad teh other "performance" wires are for our cars.

You have 2 real options.

Stock which is perfectly fine, or, PRJ wires if you plan on taking plugs in and out a lot and doing a lot of messing around.

MSD make fine wires. had them on 2 cars now for 2 1/2 years without an issue. trust me with the heat the CT kit put out and the 30 somthing times the wires were taken off i could not ask for more.

I have PRJs as well they are a great design but for the price and quality MSD is more then fine.
hell prjs are made with msd ends

Thanks Francisco, now you have another (different) car to maybe keep an eye out for.

Thanks John!

Tony, I'm going to hit up the dealer next week and see if a PCM flash to the latest code will do the trick. If not, then oh well. But I think either Tuesday or Thursday of next week, I will be out that way, and would def. like to check the brackets out. I'll let you know.

Thanks Guys!
