Just brought her home Friday and I love it. Going to have windows tinted next week. MOre than likley I am going lower it with springs. Maybe a spoiler, not too sure.. want to add foglights. Overall I love the look and the MPG. She is a 2.5L with a a 5 speed.

I will get pictures of the inside today as per the requests. The car is back at the dealer for a full detail. My Firends wife is the business manager and she hooked me up with a Glasscoat treatment. I really like the wheels, I agree they are modern but still retro. I will prob research lowering springs a little more and see what is best. I think i only want about a 1.5 inch drop. It is my daily driver and may last DD (06 HHR) was dropped 3 inches and made for a firm ride.

OK, here are a few cell phone pics.. she goes in tomorrow for the full detail. Today I smoke tinted the front corner markers, added chrome to the front grill, added square slashed stainless tips, and smoke tinted the rear reflectors. I put 1/4 inch tape and masked out 2 stripes on the reflectors.
Also is a picture of the dash.

Thanks all for the warm welcomes! This seems like a great place. I have been reading up. Anyway got the detail done today. She goes in for the tint tomorrow and I ordered the H&R sport springs. I will get them on asap as well as some projector fog lights I picked up. Should be all I need to do to make her mine.

Well I installed the H&R's and the tint is done. Sorry the pics are not that great but the weather here is wet and cold.. the car is filthy too. Also I did a little visual "mod." I added a 1/4 inch silver pinstripe with a chrome 1/4 inch plug at the end of a little squiggle.. is supposed to mimmic a guitar amp cable. It starts at the "Fender" emblem on the front fender..


Will get much better pics when it is better weather and clean!
