make sure it wasnt a shitty install cause later on it might just die on you. but not many people have respect for people who purchase their cars premodded

i think its pretty cool youre buyin a car and its already modded. youre still in school so maybe you dont have time to work on cars that much. just make sure the guy youre buyin the car from doesnt skip town.

Congrats on the purchase. Good luck with it. Some people around here will only respect you if you build a car and not buy a pre-made job. But you cares. A car is a car and it doesn't matter if you did the work or not. Hopefully everything works out for you.

You guys, you guys!!! turns out i only havd 2 grand and i couldnt buy it!!!! he hasnt sold it yet but a guys lookin at it tomorrow :( DANG, i really wanted it!! BUT i also wanted to/still want to build up a car from stock, Oh that would be sooo cool and i would know so much more about the car and OMG that would be so satisfying, however, he said that theres so much stuff he had planned and hes getting married so he needs to sell it to get the house he wants. He seems lie a pretty cool guy and all so hes gonna keep me posted opn the car and he said hes was all stoked that i wanted it to build up and learn an stuff but if i find something cheaper than it ill probably get that, OH well i guess we'll just have to wait and see the final outcome!!! :number1 :number1 :number1 :number1 :number1

don't buy someone elses toy, trust me you will regret it later not just mechanical but everyone will ask you "hey isn't that homeboy's car"
how many miles are on the b16? just make sure the car still in good condition... because if that hooked up his car; you know that he beats on it.. im looking for a new car as well, and i refuse to buy any car with mods.. even if its just an aftermarket air intake... i just hope i dont find a car until that 06 si comes out.. ;)

I get a lot of people asking me, "hey isn't that Bucks car?"...but it's for a different reason...I bought it from my friend for 2g's, but when I got it, the car was all to hell...it had some front end damage, the paint was all jacked up and it didn't run very well, but at least it ran...after dumping a little money into it, I think it looks quite nice, and I just got my b16 installed so that makes it even NICER...but I will be changing it up soon...I don't really like the body kit thing anymore...and I'm ditching the 17's in favor of some sexy 16's...anyways, I get a lot of, "man it looks a lot better now that Buck doesn't have it anymore"...lol...good luck finding a car though...
