Just Jointed - 2003 9C1

Hey all. Bought this car from someone that was going to scrap it over a leaking oil cooler. They were told a new oil cooler would be about $400, and the labor would be close to that as well, coming up to about a $1000 repair bill. The pull-a-part was offering $250, so that's what I got it for.

I bypassed the oil cooler by removing the sandwich adapter from the oil filter adapter, and drove it away. Super easy to do, if anybody ever needs to do this.

Had it for about 5 days now. So far, I've added 16" rim beauty rings, police hubcaps, new headlights, and worked on the paint and interior.

DIY shift kit coming, along with other small improvements. I'll also be re-blacking the faded trim, painting the black rims gloss black, and adding tint. I've used this site a couple of times already for information, so I thought instead of being a lurker, I'd drop by and say thank you.

Anyone that's looking for headlights, I highly recommend these. Found them on ebay for a steal, but was afraid they'd look cheap. But they look fine to me. They're the ones that have the Z shaped DRL lights.

Welcome! Love the color!
