I know it's a little late but oh well.

Got the new to me V picked up on V day (ex-soulja car). Was a great time and a great drive home. Parts are already starting to filter in! lol

Had the car shipped through a carrier (what a nightmare) luckly Soulja is an awesome dude and kept the car in the garage for a few days until the next carrier could make it.

I purchased the Lloyds mats a few weeks ago myself. To do it again I would get the Ultimat (top of the line) mats. They are okay but not as beefy as I expected for the Premium line.

Also the trunk mat is a terrible fit. Skip it and try the WeatherTech liner.

Congrats on the purchase and keep us updated on mods.

good to know about the trunk matt I will look into that. Trying to just take care of all the little things to start (radio buttons, undercarriage detailing, fix the parking brake, full drivetrain service and fix a couple leaks,
ect.)

well plugs are changed over now. No more tr6's with their nice projected tip that can create cylinder damage. In goes the br7ef's

Also changed the fuel filter, oil, and am in the process of doing a complete undercarriage detail. Undercoating it after a full detail since around here it is not the nicest roads even in summertime.

Tomorrow I will throw this on as well to finally make me legal lol
