welcome

nice looking car. I was always partial to that color combo. I'm a new poster here myself. I joined a while back when I was doing prepurchase research.

Thanks!
A couple more shots, by the way what did you mean when you asked if it was a Porsche?

OhioBoxster, you be careful driving around Ohio... it's the one state where X band is still used if I'm not mistaken... that means the best detectors will tell you it's a Walmart entrance when it's really a cop in the parking lot of the Walmart busting you for speeding down the access road.

Love the upgrades the previous owner ordered or put into your car. White gauge faces are very cool indeed. The interior looks very well kept too.

We do need more info though... what's the year, mileage, and repairs that have been done to the car thus far?

Whoa, Ohio still uses X Band? I programmed my Walgreen's Detector to ignore X band! Guess I'll stay away from the Buckeye state!

Nah, thye use X band here in Jersey. In fact, I remember reading a year or two ago that NJ is the largest user of X band in the US. Don't know if that is still true or not today, but they definately shoot it at me quite often.

interesting I'm also in NJ and deprogrammed X band off my V1.
I know X isn't used on the major interstates(actually the troopers don't even turn on the radar most of the time) and I was recently pulled over after ignoring the warning (K band) too busy talking to my passenger.

side note: interesting day in court. The court was standing room only in a predominantly WASP affluent town and there was exactly ONE caucasion person there.

Its a 99 with 41k miles, very nice condition. I wish I knew what repairs had been made after reading some of the threads on this site. Im afraid of engine failure or RMS issues now. The gauges are actually silver faced.
