I figured i would endulge you folks with a little history/present post. So, i purchased her back in Febuary of '07. Bone stock with 88k on the clock. Brilliant Black.. tiptronic.. bad shape .. needed some work.. no camera at the time. Had to get the top end rebuilt.. so i had it port and polished at the time.

MODS:
k04 turbo upgrade
GIAC chip
turboXS boost controller
neuospeed springs
18x8 Verde Kaos wheels
245/35/18 Kumo Escata
Remus custom exhaust
Port & Polish
Upgraded Injectors

to this

even the taking care of the horse cost more then the car - and the horse probably can out live the car but a horse is apparently not "street legal"
