Nice ride! Congrats!

Any plans for mods?

Love the plateless front bumper...being from CA I don't get that privilege.

I'm from CA, also. I have enough police friends that will sign off on a stupid ticket to not ruin the look of the front end of the car.

The only thing I plan to do immediately is lamin-x the front fogs to yellow, a homelink mirror... and maybe (big maybe) tint the rear tails red. Other than that, I'm very happy with it so far. It's just fun again to have a manual transmission car and the rush of that turbo spooling.

Even with the rain we've been getting lately, I still wouldn't leave CA. No place like home, I guess. The car is a blast to drive, even with less than 100 miles on it still (I've been out of town working). I try to keep it out of boost, but it spools extremely fast.

The chassis and suspension are very compliant for such a short wheelbase. The only complaint I have is cruising at 80 mph, the steering wheel gets a little twitchy.

I've seen some earth magnets glued on the inside of a bumper cover and that seem to work well. That rho-plate is a good idea, too.
