yea, stickers a pita but its alright, it actually has a bunch of dents and scratches all the way round, and there's a crack in the passenger tailight housing, but the interior(minus parts of the headliner of course) is super clean, and it runs right

not really planning persay, just a small list of what i want eventually, from what im reading around here basic na mods(intake/exhaust) are nearly useless, but an lsd would be nice, and some suspension work but thats kinda it...

to the best of my knowledge it wasn't, guy said it was just his beater car and he didn't seem to know much of anything, just always took it to some independent "specialist"
