Aero Wagon

Me and mikey d just picked up this baby last night, got a really good deal on it.

it has the right tranny, the passenger side dog leg has some rust and needs attention, the rest of the body and interior is super solid after that.

motor purrs when cold and drives and shifts great.

front bumper could use some tlc, so i will be ordering an 04 front clip and having the rust all taken care of, then on to the fun stuff.

wtf! you couldn't have found a different color? haha, looks like a nice find. More info please, mileage, year, stuff like that... I see rear park assists, I'd assume it has xenon's as well?

I ask that you please don't put a bridge spoiler and RK1's on it. Although it's probably in better shape than mine @ 190k. I'm still planning on stage III this spring though after a few maintenance items, and mine already has the 18t-6

The wheels look like the 16" BBS winter package saabeh, not sure if you were wondering about the wheels or the actual tires?

edit: I see from your other post it's an 03... almost curious what the vin# is and how close it is to mine.

saabeh ill let you know tomorow havent really had too great of a chance to look at them yet.

carl i thought your car was a different color lol i guess not? i really love this color my sedan was the same too. its easy to take careof , looks great, blends in and really hides blemishes well.

Its an 03 Aero5 speed. with 149k. loaded with every option but the rear slider, everything seem solid on this car.

I NEED TO get that bridge spoiler haha(is there only 2 diff spoilers?), i'll lay off the RKIs for yous though. I am undecided on wheels deff keeping them dark and oem 5 spokes or double ys . it looks good , I need to take care of the little body blemishes first.

Yeah, spoilers for the wagon you really only have two options; the bridge, which you can find knock offs of online, or the 3 pronged style which I'm really not a huge fan of... either double Y's or 5 spokes would look REALLY good on it. I'm trying to figure out what to do with my RK1's as they need some touch up. Not sure if I'll be able to do it without butchering them or if I should just suck it up and have them professionally refinished.

Congrats on the wagon though, we're now twins.

thanks, no real damage it is missing the front lip and the bottom actual "lip" of the bumper is cracked a bit.

never been in an accident.

Its funny i tried calling the previous owners for service history as the car had little, but it seems like they really kept up with oil changes and just general maintenance on the car based on how it drives and sounds.
