Your car looks nice and clean, inside and out. Nice contrast with the rims. Very nice. Isn't 235/50/18 a slightly wrong + size? It's 245/45/18 on a 2nd gen. Wasn't your original size a 225/60/16 or a 205/70/15?

I do believe these are 235/50/18 and my stocks were 205/70/15. They look a bit out of place but I am getting ground effects/body kit and possibly an Eibach Spring Kit.

Just so you know your speedo is off by 3.6% (60MPH on the speedo is 62.2 MPH actual)

Car looks in great shape. Had any major mechanical done?

Yeah it's about 2 MPH off and thanks! Major mechanical things? None really, new brakes and rotors recently, as well as regular maintenance such as oil changes, etc.

Excellent. Wow, just noticed the mileage too. Way low. That car should last you a good long time.
Yeah it's running perfect. Around 2002 when my mother got her 2nd gen Intrepid, this car mostly sat. Occasionally it was driven. Wasn't really driven until this year when I started driving in March. I apprectiate the positive comments so far :D.

Never thought of getting an engine pic, since mine's so blah I guess you could say, lol. The rotors on there are new, we bought them in 2001 and they've been in the box forever, but nothing special, although I'd like to get some Brembo drilled and slotted rotors. Also, Enkei does make the ZR-5s in 16 inches - http://www.enkei.com/Performance specs/RZ-5.html

After looking at your pics again you HAVE to get a ES Bumper or a 96 base bumper with foglights. I just think the 1st gens look 100000000000000 times better with factory fogs. However, the 2nd gen SE's dont look that bad without them... or do they?

Today we (dad and I) put on the Catco (not MagnaFlow like i thought, my bad) catalyitic converter. We also got a coupling that reduces vibrations. The exhaust system is back up in the car. I started it up and it sound amazing, almost like a V8. I'll have to go up to AutoZone and get this sealant. My dad puts it around the sealings of where each exhaust piece slips over one another so when there is rust, we can get the piping off easier. I'll post pics later, and maybe even get a video put up.

hey u plan on blackin out your tails?

since we're practicly neighbors we gotta do **** like that together all the time

im thinkin bout takin off my trim = P
I might be doin the tails, I havn't fully decided yet. Stay tuned for that one ;)...

Great looking Intrepid, but is time to lower it too will make it look mean and some tint that will help too :D
Thanks! I'm lookin' to get an Eibach spring kit that'll lower it 1 inch in the front and 1.3 inches in the back, and eventually when I have more cash, I'll head up to the tint shop thats about 5 minutes from here. Not a bad lookin' Trep you got in your sig there Schider ;)

Finally uploaded the video I took yesterday. Note that my Panasonic FZ-50 Digital SLR camera is great for pics, but horrible for videos. The internal mic really does suck and makes my car sound not nearly as deep as it really is. If i can get a good sound outta a camera, I can post a newer video sometime. Enjoy!

Sorry for the lack of updates. Still nothing back from the race shop in Ontario on my body kit. I guess it's still being made or something. Since I was last on here I installed a high flow K&N Air Filter instead of doing a new intake like I had planned. I still am planning on black for my car - but I'm wondering what company to do. Sherwin Williams? Dupont? I'm not sure yet, but I'm open to suggestions.
