Default My new 242t, stage 0, mbc, 3" catless tbe

I just got it today and am very satisfied So far I love it. It is just a turbo, no intercooler.... Yet Its very clean, 4 owner, which the guy we bought it from knew all of them, with 170k miles. It seems to be very well taken care of with all the books, most of the records and all the original keys. My plans are to get some ipd springs, swaybars, new shocks & struts, intercooler, mbc set to 12psi after stage "0" upgrade, new taillights, new audio equipment. Well onto the pics....















Tell me what yall think

Looks nice, straight and clean! I envy your garage and work space, wow i would love to have some room like that protected from the weather. It makes working on the car that much easier.

Yeah, it is nice to have. But with the weather being as hot as it is now, I really dont feel like tinkering out there

Also, one of its wheels is white? I asked the guy that had it before me and he said it was like that when he got it. Weird eh?
Im thinking about painting them the grey color that the newer R wheels are. Anyone know the paint code?

Gonna be the sole dissenting voice here. Keep the commandos, but maybe swap a GT spoiler on. Then, go flathood and run some 7" rounds... Most of the toy bumper conversions I've seen here on T-bricks look worse than the original "bucktooth" commando bumpers.

Car looks real nice, tho...

Thanks for the complements

ROFL, well, he'd have to do that to his 245, then. Besides, my 245 is a bit more of a clone of his 245 now. I'd need to retoy bumper it, put a roof rack on, and reinstall the old Aw71.

His car would be rather unique, in that it'd be a light metallic blue 242GT...

With your color of car I would go with a graphite. I have a bright silver 240 with black virgos on there. But it could pretty go either way. Since it has that bluish color to it id go with graphite.
