Welcome to the forum. Where are you from?

You're planning on keeping it stock, right? :histeric:

actually im from navarre florida, i have to be completely honest :), i took it for a little spin tonight, i have to say im very happy with my purchase, for an 05 it's about a 7 out of 10 condition. needs a little TLC which im going to to work on tomorrow. New truck shocks, little touchup paint from a scratch and she's all good, as far as mods, i have to keep her stock for a while. mods later on after saving up will be springs, exhaust and new tint job. short shifter is also something that i'd like... however no huge rush at this time. just happy to have the car and enjoy my time as a new stock v owner. thanks again guys, keep checking back for more pics tomorrow.

On a serious note though it is looking real good!

Nice job on the detail. A couple quick tips before taking pics in the future:

1. Lower your wiper arms
2. Close or sunroof, or vent it
3. Drive around the block to get the after-wash rust off your rotors

What spoiler is that? I don't think I've ever seen that before. More pics of that?

Oh yeah, nice house number! :lol:
