Finally picked up my 2.3 SE yesterday. I felt like a little kid on Christmas. It had 7.4 miles on it. The 4-cylinder and auto combo is pretty nice. I'm suprised at the torque this thing has, the transmission is real smooth. I can't even tell it is shifting unless I watch the tach. The engine is slighty audible under acceleration but once at cruising speed I can't hear it all. This car is awesome, handles like a dream. The ride is real smooth, and believe me, the roads here in England are terrible. So far I have no rattles, but I only have 114 miles on the odometer. I got the green with camel interior. This color is beautiful in the sunlight. I get stares every where I go, especially since this car isn't available in England. People on base don't even recognize it, but I get compliments everywhere I go. The stereo has a lot of bass although the bass seems kinda flat at times. Sort of like it has no depth. But it sounds pretty good for a stock stereo. I'm used to having systems in my cars, I think this will be my first car where I'll avoid adding subs. I'll just upgrade the speakers and add an amp later. All in all, this car was worth the wait. Check out the link for pics. Look at both pages, it also shows what my light conversion consisted of for those of you that were wondering.

At first I didn't like the support under the pedal, but I found it is comfortable when I am wearing my uniform with my boots. Since my boots are thicker than regular shoes, they naturally rest on the support and it works out just fine. But when I'm wearing regular shoes, my heel naturally rests on the floormat so I don't even notice the support. Now I'm thinking my shoes are going to wear a hole in the floor mat, might be time for me to get some rubber mats. As for the gas here in England, off base is 98 octane and it is like 9 dollars a gallon, but I buy gas on base for 2.51 a gal. Although our gas on base is a little watered down, it is still 95 octane. So far the car likes it.
I'm in the Air Force, just like it says in my signature at the bottom of every post I make.
