Got my hands on a 2004 Aero Wagon

Took a lot of searching but I FINALLY was able to get a manual Aero wagon. It's a 2004, Laser Red, 150kmi. I'll get pictures one of these days.

Couple things..

Coming from a '00 Aero, the engine sounded throatier, even though my '00 has the open air intake and this '04 doesnt. Is that from the "king cobra"?

The radio would randomly switch to CD without me touching anything. Happened multiple times. There was no CD in it, so it would go back to Radio, but still, kind of strange. Any clue where to start with that? My '00 sedan has an aux input installed, I assume they can be swapped between the cars with a tech2?

The Passenger front light is acting up. The bulb never went out, but did noticeably flicker a few times. Would this be a ballast problem?

Other than that, car drives great. It needs a good detail and buffing but should clean up nicely.. The couple seemed to take great mechanical care of it, records all the way back to 2007.

Congrats! I've been looking for an '04 Aero wagon myself, MT of course.. I've got an '01 Aero MT wagon and love it.. but the look of the '04 is killer.

Red is the best color for a wagon, if you ask me. Post some pics!
