    Just parked at home; needs a good wash.

    Imported through PCA (as you can see on the rear window, free advertising).

    V300 Vertex
    Around 137xxx
    All the bells and whistles that I wanted - sunroof, leather, power everything.
    Stock aside from an air filter, slightly lowered suspension, and some tints.

    Definitely needs some tlc around the body but it's a blast to drive. Great combination of power and luxury; even stock like this.

    Blackout the chrome trim, swap the rims, and she's near perfect!

    I'm probably going to keep the rims for awhile because I got new tires and if I switch rims I'll be going 18 or 19.

    Trim definitely needs to be addressed. The worst is the Chrome at the front, it's all faded and chipped. I actually don't know if it ever was Chrome.

    Complete the tint while you're at it.

    Those contis are pretty good in weather (ran a winter on them with no troubles) but a joke as a performance tire.

    Not trying to get pulled over; from what I know any sort of front tint in Vancouver is just asking for it.

    Bummer. This indeed claims that front tints are illegal. :\

    I been seeing more and more cars with front tint these days. But I live in the farm land. Cops dont care about stuff like that out here.

    Front tint always has been illegal, but so are tires wider than your fenders, LED offroad lights, etc...It all depends if you get caught...Hell, the police cars around here have the siren covering their front plate...
