Finally got another car

Postby bk7794 » Thu Jul 13, 2017 9:08 pm

So after driving only Honda Civics my entire driving career, I finally ventured out and got myself something different. After years of thought and planning I got myself a new to me car. Story is actually kind of funny, but long story short, I got it from a friend.

I'll have to get some pictures when the weather stops raining.

The good:

- I got it for cheap
- Aftermarket custom exhaust
- Very comfortable

The Bad:

- Front shocks will need to be replaced

Shocks are a bit expensive. This is my first European car. I know it'll be a game changer from a Honda. But I plan to be smart about it and when or if it bites me hard..I probably will bail.

Pedals are placed absolutely perfectly

It seems to be very red and shiny, but if you rub your Volvo it will really glisten.
