Thanks man, I always have too many of these cars laying around. Right now I am at 3. I never liked the angel eyes on these for some reason. Definitely a nice look, but I am just not that into them.

Interesting. Seems like too much of a pain since I am unsure about the transmission issue. The kits on ebay do mention the trans they had. I guess I will have to choke down the cost of a new key. ...
