Thanks!

Its got 139k miles on it.

Not a fan of the tires it came with though.

Dunlop direzzi z1 sports

A little to harsh for my style. Plus they are loud.

Looking for a good summer tire that's not as loud. I don't race or autocross. Just a good daily driver. With a few spirited runs around tight on ramps

I have winters so thats not a problem

Thanks guys

it came with bilstiens HD shocks with stock springs
aluminum rear shock mounts (turnermotorsports)
M shift knob
rear trunk spoiler lip
AC Schnitzer rear roof spoiler


just got front control arms and FCABs replaced with Lemforder
and powerflex RTABs...glad that's done, it was expensive!! but I should be set for awhile.


oh and i think its the sport package cause it has staggered wheels (225-255)

still a couple more things to do but the bulk of the maintenance is done for now.
