I bought this recently after a deer totaled my LS :( . Bought in October '14 with 120,xxx miles. It came with a sts installed and an extra set of 17" ss/NA wheels. And a K&N drop in filter. Everything else is stock, for now!!

Parts I have to install when the weather isn't all icy:
BC racing coilovers :D
TC wheels
Injen charge pipes
Cf hood

i think someone has a car on here that has a bat symbol on the back and front of their car were their Bowtie used to be.



also there wouldn't be any chance those "extra" 17's would be 4 bolt would they? i know they probably aren't but a guy can hope lol!

idk how his car drives at 120k but mine is about 500 miles from 130k and still runs like a champ. its about time for a good tune up though, she needs some stuff to keep her running strong. i will say when i got the car back in 2011 she had 72k on it and in the last 60k i have only had to do basic maintenance and i replaced both front wheel hub assemblies cause the drivers side was bad. the car has been through a lot too, there for a while i was putting about 100 miles a day on her for about 6 months.

Hey batmobile how does your car run with the higher mileage? Also do you mind me asking how much you paid?
I think it runs really good! However it is the on ss I've ever driven. I noticed yesterday when I was cleaning my engine bay that the charge pipe between the intercooler and throttle body has a dent in it. So I need to get that replaced. I also want to clean the intake valves.

Maple man, I have a set of 17" wheels that are 4 lug. You can see them in l this link. The only problem is one is bent from a pothole so I kept it on the rear with no issues. Lmk if you're interested. You would need to buy tuner lugs too.

she was talking about getting some more jewelry when our tax return comes in and said she had her eye on a ring for a while, so i told her "you get a ring, and i get a wing" lol she didnt like that too much. i told her the day i get an SS wing in the mail ill order that ring for her lol. she just gave me a dirty look and shook her head.

well that's the problem with me, i make enough that she doesn't have to work and i make enough to have money left over, the problem is we need a second vehicle so she isn't stuck cooped in the house all the time when i got to work and so she doesn't have to drive me to the airport all the time when i go out of town for business. so we have been saving and doesn't want me using that money to mod the car lol. besides she says if i'm going to get my own vehicle then she doesn't want the car looking like something a "teenage ricer boy" (as she puts it) would drive cause that's not her style. so we are kind of at a standstill. there are some things she might not fight me on (like rims) but she expects me to get them for free somewhere, so i have been waiting for the weather the break to go to the junkyard and do some salvaging off that SS i seen there. i really want the seats if they aren't bad.
