Default My new toy!

Well, I just bought a 95 eagle talon tsi awd, for about 2 days, And it died. Started making some clicking noises, Then it just wouldnt start. I learned later that this is crankwalk, The crank moves in the block and it was making the crank sensor hit the cover, that was the clicking, and then it just broke altogeher. So i took it back to the used car place(via a rope), And they gave me a deal on this sweet 2002 mr2 spyder! lol. Luckily i spent the extra 12$ a month on the 12 month warranty, which was basically free cause i didnt make a payment yet, and they transferred my 2k down. I already love the mr2 and i havent even owned the car for 24 hours yet. It has 40k miles on it and so far is a blast to drive...Most fun ive ever had in a car. This is my daily driver because im going back to college and work, And my supra blew its head gasket (sigh). I am going to enjoy the 30 ish mpg tho...lol. Ill post pics tommorow!

P.S. - Needless to say, I dont like DSM cars anymore.

Thanks. This has to be the most fun car ive ever driven, From a list of about 65 cars, ranging from dump trucks to an 02 camaro SS...It doesnt have the sheer horsepower, and it doesnt handle like an F1 car, But its just great fun to drive around lol. It is pretty dam fast too. Its basically just a backwards corolla with a chopped down body and 2 seats. lol. The only thing i really plan to do is change the intake and exhaust because they seem really restrictive, Both by looking at them and by the drop off of power the car has after 5500 rpms, And the tach redline is 7500, seems kinda pointless haha. someone donate me a turbo kit! lol.

one more good thing about that car :

every body panel is a bolt on affair
so no mouldings required
even a widebody kit

Nice reliable transportation isphius.

I don't like the "bodykit" thing stuck all over it, it's hideous.
I can't own another car. If I had that car, I'd have a 2ZZ-GE-T swap planned, coilovers, wheels, Cusco roll cage, etc...

I'd have to de-chick-ify the car though... they're just chick cars in my eyes. Same with ZZT231 Celicas and Miatas. Nothing a little work can't change though.

Yes, im looking around for the stock 03+ front bumper and the 00-02 rear bumper. I think the sides are just bolted over the existing sides so ill look. Its a well done body kit, its all in factory holes and mounts. So should be no problem to take off. And its all urethane instead of fiberglass so it doesnt break when it hits shot haha. The thing i like most tho is i can get to my school and back and not burn 2 gallons of gas. lol.

Ok well so far the only plans/mods are as follows -

1. Convert back to stock bumpers. take off side skirts. Keep the $400 trd foglights

2. HIDs, If i can find a conversion kit. I love the way they light the road, And i need the bright lights to stop people from backing into to me or something bad like that. But i mostly just like how they look

3. Team moon dual exhaust, I love the sound and its the cheapest catback ive seen so far

4. Intake making use of the driver side vent incoming air and ebay pod filter and adapter

5. Stereo. New headunit, new speakers, And im gona fit 2 8 inch subs in the cubby hole storage behind the seats

6. And in the future wider tires and stiffer shocks. It handles GREAT but rolls a bit too much, and it really feels like its chewing up the outside tires in turns.
