Oh I definitely will! The original owner kept the interior very clean. She was a flight attendant and most of the miles on her are high way. She'd drive from home to the air port, she'd sit there for a few days and then she'd drive home. Still had the original tires on the front when I got her with 96K miles on them!

It's starting to get cold and snow will be on the ground soon so I plan on really cleaning her up and getting some pictures when the weather gets warm!

Pretty, pretty! :) I normally don't care for spoilers, but it looks great on your black car! Are you planning on tinting the windows or leaving them untinted? I want mine tinted but keep putting it off, lol. But I'm a fan of an all blacked out look.

Thanks! the spoiler looks good but it needs to be painted; I'm losing a lot of the clear coat. I thought about tinting the windows but there's a town around here that I drive though daily that has very strict laws on window tints. I'd basically only be able to tint the rear and back windows. The fronts would have to be completely clear.

Wow now that's a great find!

sorry to hear about the tint thing, I couldn't imagine having to drive without it..ESPECIALLY living in FL. Our tint laws are pretty lenient so I'm happy for that. Also love the fact that we don't require to have front plates :sneaky2:

Oh and also no snow! :moon2: :D

I've added some pictures for everyone's viewing pleasure! The camera on my phone doesn't do it justice and I was loosing light so they're kind of grainy. These will do for now until spring!

I'm afraid to remove the front plate holder and see what the bumper looks like underneath it. At the very least I'd have hols there. Damn Illinois and their double license plates!

Wow - that's a clear car! I wish I had the darker colored carpet in mine. Mine is... er... was a light gray, lol. You should come detail mine next hahaha. I wanted a second generation Intrepid and ended up buying my first generation. *sigh* Your car makes me wish I waited a bit longer!!

Thanks! I can't take all the credit; the first owner kept it pretty clean. I love the 2nd Gen, but I also loved my 93 that I had before this! Nothing better than a 10 year upgrade though!

Yesterday my check engine light came on after doing some highway driving. When I got home, I did the key dance and pulled code P0344. The light was on all yesterday and was off this morning and while I drove to the dealership for the sensor. I replaced the camshaft position sensor today just in case. $62 from the dealership. I also did the PCV valve. The old one still rattled but it felt gummy. The replacement really rattled so I hope that helps with things.

Old vs. New

LEDs from V-LEDs came in today. I got the 60 LED 5K Switchback that go A-O when the turn signal is activated. I gotta say it's still more blue than I like but isn't terrible. I do have hyper flashing but I bought some resistors from Radioshack and will put those in when my HID lights come in from DDM Tuning.

One problem I'm having though. Earlier on I mentioned I have voltage drops when I unlock the doors, roll down the window, and hit my gas peddle. Also have really bad dimming when my modest 200W all in one Infinity Basslink sub is on. Well when I was driving today, I noted that the white will go off completely for a split second when I hit my breaks. I haven't tested it further but its a very annoying problem.

Also added a little bling

I like'em! The front view picture, they look pretty clear to me. The second shot, I can see the blue hue it gives. Still think it looks nice! The new lights can definitely give a car an updated feel. :D Are you going to do anything with the foglights?

Yea i think it's my camera phone doing that lol. It's not as white as it is in the first picture and not as blue, but still a bit more blue than my liking. The foglights are stock but I did put in PIAA Crystal ION Yellow fog lights. I wanted the yellow for better visibility in inclement weather.

That's a good looking car. Nice work!
Thank you!
