First off my name is Spencer Townsend (Spencerctown) I live in northwest Missouri, I'm 18, and at the moment i have about a month left of highschool. (Btw is there a better way to put pics up here besides photobucket? Im only gonna have a few pics up here if thats the case)

Enough about me, I have a bright silver metallic 2000 intrepid es. Got the car when i was 15 from my dad. Little mods began about 2 years ago, first one being the black projector headlights. Mine were all yellowed and i just needed a replacement and i found these. Like most of you a little mod is what set me off, one thing leading to another until i have a car that i accually love to have.

(This pics still got the old alloys. Got stock chrome on now)

Mod list:
Black Projector headlights
Tinted Taillights
Magna Flow dual exhaust (One of my fave mods)
K&N Cold air intake
Red painted calipers
Blue led interior (Few stuff to still make blue)
Aftermarket speakers
Recently 300m special Cluster (Love that thing)
Debadging (Just think it looks cleaner that way)
Few other little things i cant think of

Well im always open to performance suggestions (hoping to do somethin with the pcm). And im kinda new here so please excuse any problems i have with this lol. Really lookin forward to gettin to know you guys better. Im really gettin into this site and i love it
There are more pics on my cardomain page if u want a better idea of the car.

Thanks man really means alot

She's a beaut! It's nice to see a younger fellow have some pride and respect for his car. You have autostick? What motor? If it's the 3.2 some 3:89 gears will give it some zing!!
3.89 gears.... dont temp me lol. I'll eventually have to do this, just sounds too good. Need the money and know how first. And yup 3.2 with autostick. God i love that autostick, i dont think i can own another car without it lol.

Not as hard as you think, takes a few hours but not a big deal...I can help you if need be....nice lookin Trep man!

Shop would charge you 3-400$ most likely...but like I said, not that big a deal, if your mechanically inclined....

Hey! I was looking into buying the same projector headlights on ebay. Was just wondering what color light they actually put out because on ebay there's pics of them showing blue and some pics showing a nice crisp white which is what i'm looking for.

Looks great love the headlights. You gotta change your sig pic to the new wheels though. Looks like a million bucks with those. I've got hundreds of photos in my photobucket album, so keep uploading!!!

Yea I've seen that too, idk if there is accually a color difference. But mine are a crisp white, I would think that blue ones would be illegal. There are two different kinds, the ones with the turn signal on the inside and the ones on the outside. The ones on the outside are made my spyder and they seem to be of better quality so I'd go with them. I had a fender bender that ruined my first pair, so I got the ones with the turn signal on the inside. I like that look alot better but the halos never worked. And by the time i realized this the 3 month return policy had run out. :poopoo:

I read somewhere..that if you get a 55watt kit as apposed to a 35watt kit..the color is washed out some..and to achieve a 6000K ..you would have to step up to a 8000K(want 8000K you'd have to get 10,000K ..and so on) .. IIRC it was on retrofitsource.com or something like that....35Watt kit is what most use and I've heard they're more reliable too.
Moral of the story..research.. maybe check out HIDPLANET.com
