Just wanted to officially "join" the forum and introduce myself. I recently moved within 10 minutes of my day job, so I traded in my gas saver about a month ago and got this black '09 sedan, with 23k miles, and all available options, primarily for my wife to haul the baby around and enjoy herself while doing so... It's flawless, and felt better than the '12's they had for more than $20k, so it was a simple choice.

I'm a huge gearhead, so I'm anxiously looking forward to modding it. I'm probably going to wait till next summer for the big stuff though, as I want my wife to get used to the current power levels.

So far I put on an airraid cold air intake, and plastidip'd the wheels. I'll probably keep them dipped until I buy some new wheels, and then use the stocks for the track. I only have a crappy cellphone pic of the wheels after being dipped...

The ONLY issue with the car, is that my wife loves it more than I do. So that is limiting my chances to drive it:rolleyes: Anyway, looking forward to my ownership and some good discussions on this forum!

Very nice cars, especially the V. I think 09 is the best year.

Thanks it was my dream car as a kid, so I'll never get rid of it. I drive it, and drive it hard. I took it to work today haha...

It's a '99 ACR. Only mods are a full exhaust, SSR wheels, and some recaro pole position seats. It's plenty fast enough. I really really need a big brake kit to fully enjoy it at the track, but just haven't had the time to do it. Hopefully this winter though.
