    Told you I wasn't going anywhere! Wife and I picked this up last week for $8300. Has 70k miles. Body is in perfect condition and the motor runs strong. Only thing bad in my eyes is that the interior wasn't taken care of that great. I'll post a pic of the front tomorrow, i forgot to take one i guess :(
    So far I've done the tint, and I ordered the HFP front lip...should be in soon!

    You guys got no idea how close I was to buying an SI!! Then she reminded me the reason why I sold the car in the first place. Save gas, daily, small family car. I instantly lost haha. But yep I'm ok with it though. No engine mods are going to happen here. I'm just going to make it look nice and keep the people guessing what I have inside :p. I don't plan on doing much to it but I still want to make it really clean. My wife is going to be driving it to school most likely so I don't want to do too much to it. I have to relearn everything about a car now. Took me so long to learn the "in and outs" of my old car.

    2 things I really like about the 8th gens: the adjustable arm rest and the seats.

    Great pick up! :thumbs up. Can't wait to see what you have in store! ;)

    Rims, small drop, & some stickers for added HP, lol, nice pick up though, getting the interior clean is going to be a chore but I know your up to it.

    Anyone have tips on cleaning tan cloth interior. I use to work at a detailing place but the stuff we used I can't buy at a store.

    I want lip to come in already!!
    The seats really are comfy!! The arm rest thing is cool, the only thing bad is that the arm rests' clip thing that holds it down are known to breaking. The previous owner broke it and I had to buy a new one already.
    There IS a body kit I like that is out there...sigh...dream

    I used a spray bottle mixed with 15% Dawn & 85% water & used a soft brush on the seats & hard brush on the carpet then shop vac the hell out of it, also heard simple green mixture at 10% will work just as good if not better.

    Love the white sedans! Glad you got something that is family functional. Please the wife, she'll please you. Wanna see this thing with goodies exploiting the exterior. You could do some swapping of the interior to Si maybe, that'd be sweet.

    Bumper might look OEM but that doesn't mean it's OEM. A lot of aftermarket OE replacements look identical to their counter parts from the stealership. It might be a shadow or lighting but it looks like the front bumper is a different color in that first picture.

    My brother has a white 06 sedan. I think the paint sucks on the 8th gens. He never takes care of it (wash or wax) and the clear coat is flaking off, the body panels are starting to look different colors....it's horrendous. I can't recall if he ever took care of his 6th gen (my car that I own now) but my paint is no where near as bad (color and flaking wise. The car has a s**t ton of dents and rock chips though).
