good luck man, and f*** thieves.
What are the plans?
I haven't decided yet as far as a powerplant, but i plan to start with some basic visual changes, paint matched grill, SiR lip, a few interior bits.

Definitely less, I have no worries with this ride that need to be addressed.

if you dont mind me asking, how much did you give for it?
The little dealer sold it for 3200. Didnt mind the price since it has a brand new radiator and fan, brand new A/C, condenser and belts. Its problem free with some minor panel mis-alignments so i could live with that. Plus ive always wanted an EK since i was like 18 so i pretty much would've paid whatever for it lol

I can def. relate. I've wanted a EK hatchie since '03. It's nice to see a EK that hasn't been tainted yet. Good luck with the new bundle of joy, Child!

Yeah it pretty much is. I'm missing one button and one small plastic trim piece inside, and there is some clear coat damage under the original dealership emblem on the hatch

EVERYbody should aspire to a bay that clean tho. Good lord. "Like new" is actually accurate.

I've seen them, those Raybrig fogs right? Those might be an option for me but I dont know.

Why you guys laughing at my buddy club seat =) its comfortable and a lower driving position for my 6'2" body. Stock seat had an ugly tear on the side

Do a '99 '00 front end man. Personally I hate the bumpers of the '96 through '98.
