any 1 ever bought a car online, my parents are looking at this del sol.. how much does it cost to ship a car? i really really like this cars, it says Vtec but its an si, its sohc not dohc... i guess its still like si v-tec but not really lol, ne 1 notice ne reasons why not to be interested in this car? looks bad ass and will look even better pimped out, i will share my ideas for such a car in a second...ive decided if i get a black del sol to paint the tails red instead of altezzas "yahhh" lol figure u boys would like that... my plans for that car if i were to get it...heres the link to the car i want, i live in st.louis mo, id have to have it shipped



http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=1860355233

i would get the following

white 17; rims wid red brake calipers
red painted interior with red shifter knob and white shifter boot
white guages
full body kit, invader front and sides with extreme rear bumper, with a RED mesh grille, red hood pins, black Terminator II wing, Red CAI, exhaust, headers, paint my valve cover ect... damm nice looken car lol i prefer the red mesh on a black car if your sporting the red interior/calipers ect...red/black scheme but with the white rims mathcing with the white shifter boot and guages, it all evens out..lol my fingers hurt from typing lol

PS: what the hell was this guy thinking?http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=1860543164

1) Don't get 17's; 16 max, especially with an Si, (or for ANY sol,
these wheels are too damn big for such a tiny car). My friend
calls my 15"'s "ghetto", and he hates foreign cars, (BTW, his
Z28 has 15's).
2) Do NOT "defile" your interior, PLEASE! You'll thank me later
for this, or say something like: "damn! I should'a listened to
that BlueBallz asshole!" :).
3) Keep the exterior STOCK! That bitch looks fine, almost as
fine as mine :D. Maybe a CF hood and lip; these look excellent
on black cars.
4) For GOD's sake!, DO NOT put that wing on your (future?) car!
That shit is disgusting!
In conclusion: I'd say it looks like a fair deal, a nice n' clean
delsol, and in a "kickass" color, (except for those damn swirl
marks :)). My suggestion is: if you're going to put your money
into making it "look good", your first purchase should be black
leather Recaro seats, the "sports". Then you can sell me those
red-stripes, for cheap, for such good advise :D.
P.S.- When I get my MD Quart setup, I'll set my tweeters
higher, but he's got a pretty good setup; (you want them as
high as possible, or so I've read, but at least he has a separate tweeter setup).

Just a few notes on that eBay auction... The seller sure hypes up this "custom VTEC car", but when you really look at it, it's an Si with a decent stereo system. The clear headlights (it's really just the corners with the indicators) are either the fairly inexpensive ones you can buy or this person did the free do-it-yourself How-To modification. The white face gauges aren;t all that special/custom either. Both of those are worth about $100 or less. Other those two things, it's not very "custom".

I'm pretty sure that Kelly Blue Book is not $8K for that del Sol too. Seems steep for one that old with that many miles. If it goes for around the price it's at now, it's probably not a bad deal, but not for $8K.

There is a difference between style and posing. Looking fast before you can go fast is usually frowned upon on these boards. Sorry bro, that's OUR style. Not trying to be a dick, just tellin it how it is. -Respect

You should do "go" BEFORE "show", IMO, simply because
accidents happen, and that mechanic installing your engine
upgrade might accidentally drop that wrench on your pristine
$5000.00 paintjob. AND deny it later when you come back
to complain. When your car's a "blur", though, who cares
what it looks like :D.
I guarantee you, you'll get much more emotional satisfaction
having the "fastest car in town" than having the "'purdiest'
car in town". But I understand your opinion: my friends can't
understand why I stick with my D-16; gotta' do "your own thing".
Re-think about the wing though, at least? That shit is just...
so disgusting! Even on a "big" car.

There aresome stealth boxes or custom made boxes that go behind the seat, but they are expensive as crap. If you really need the space why dont you put the sub up for sale or on ebay or something and thatll give you more money for your car. Congrats on the car if you get it.
