Cool New club member..

Hello new corner of the world!

Just purchased a very nice Ti from a guy on Staten Island. 69k miles, 5 speed, in Avus blue (thanks figured out the color!), everything works well and car drives like a dream.

I'm also looking for a Philadelphia area shop for the inevitable repairs and maintenance to come, happy to hear any suggestions as I don't currently have much room to do anything other than minor work myself.

Looking forward to learning a lot about this very fun ride!

Cheers,
Ben

Welcome! You'll find a lot of the important DIYs here, and a great community. If you haven't already, replace your radiator

Medium blue....probably alaska or avus blue I'd guess

Welcome!, you will love the car! They are a blast! VAC Motorsports http://www.vacmotorsports.com/ 2501 Snyder Ave. Philly is a great shop. My son (teen ti) went to school in Philly and used VAC if he had problems with his e46. He left Philly 3 years ago but the last time we were there I think one of the mechanics was into ti's and might have even had a 6cyl swapped one. The org is also a great resource for questions and DIY information. Pictures please!

Thanks for the suggestion! Contacted VAC this morning as I need them to look over a few minor things. And y'all also helped me figure out the color

Pics coming soon..

Exclamation

Anyone else having issues uploading photos? The site also errored out when I tried to add the vehicle to the garage, but did eventually save.

In any case the forum isn't letting me upload image files

(they are less than 2MB, 1024x768 size, JPG format)
