Well kinda.. Traded in my 2000 auto ZX3 and have had the SVT for about a month now and loving every second!
This car is so much better then my ZX3 (which was fairly heavily modded outside of a turbo) Awesome car my only real complaint is the oem tires
need to get some Kumho's back under there! (use to have them on my Zx3)
Anyway wanted to say hi and throw a pic up before I start on modding it. Mostly going to be doing "looks" mods cause I'm happy with the cars performance. With that said I'm looking at keeping a black/silver scheme only problem is my car has the red cloth inserts any alternatives out there to getting them reupholstered or changing the seats?

Congrat's on the new SVTF!


And just for the record, extensive NASA testing has shown the Infra-Red to have a slightly lower coefficient of friction than black, thus making Infra-Red SVTF's a full second quicker in all performance catagories. And, we don't have to wax as often!

I dont give a rats arse what Nasa says, look at their track record lately... When they can determine the cause of a wing falling off, maybe I will listen to their theories on drag coefficients!
Until then Black is Da Bomb!!!
Congrats on your SVT, you will LOVE it, you will HATE it... but it will be your baby!!!
Now get to the car wash and wash that thing! (for the third time this week!)

Welcome to the club and enjoy the car! Where are you in Virginia? I am pretty sure that Turbo Tom was organizing a track day up at VIR pretty soon, you might want to check it out!

Welcome to the Jet. I got my SVT in April and it is a blast to drive. CD Silver does seem to be the fastest color though lol. Enjoy.
