Cool New owner (blue 2000 S)

It's official! So excited. I've learned so much from this board during the purchasing phase. Will certainly make much use during the owning phase. Thanks everyone.

It's not official until you post a PICTURE. It's a forum rule (unofficially).

On a forum I have been a member on since 2004, whenever a member posts a "I got a new car" thread, they require a piece of paper with the forum-members nickname written on it -with the assumed car in the background. Works well.

Yeah I noticed that as well. I wasn't sure if it was a mod or not. The code sheet said it came with litronics but suppose those are two different things. Still learning.

It also has a modified exhaust so someone down the line must have been into the culture of it. Probably the guy who made the note on the maintenance book that he kept all receipts.

Looks like a sister to mine!
Must be nice not to have a front plate.
First job will be to get the calipers repainted.

rare option?

Is that a PSE button on the dash? There are more sasquatch sightings than PSE sightings around here (upper Alabama). But the exhaust tips look to be maybe from a 550? Anyway, congrats, love the color, enjoy the ride.

No, we just like pictures great looking car! Looks like you a have painted center console, very nice! Definitely need to paint your calipers. It's pretty easy, I just did mine and it makes a big difference! Enjoy
