never try and buy a 22 year old car from a dealer always a rip off

yep but the eclipse is a fun little car and its not that bad looking. Im probally gonna just do some cosmetics,Wheels,nightshade the taillights etc but probally just gonna put an injen cold air intake because cold air is more denser and better for your car right?

I didn't see that coming, but to be honest they're okay cars..

you keep saying N/A, are you talking about the 2nd gen eclipse? The 3rd gen is the convertible one from 2 fast 2 furious..

My brother in law has a GS-t Spyder, and it's a quick little car, and the Lexus foglight capsules I sell fit the fogs perfectly, hint hint..;)

You'd be a dumbass for buying an NA for 5k too... unless it was damn near MINT.

You know, I bought mine from a dealer (my first Supra anyway), took it off their hands for $1000. Had a BHG and a blown radiator (literally, exploded top tank), due to them trying to warm the car up on a -25°F morning, in case someone wanted to test drive it... Car was in VERY nice shape otherwise. :)

If you're going to do the taillights, I can only recommend ONE light coat of the stuff. Nobody likes getting rear ended because you were dumb, painted your tail lights black, and now your brake lights can't be seen... ;)

Honestly, if I were buying a car like that, I'd merely leave it alone. Drive it for transportation, and keep up on the maintenance, while saving for your future Supra. :)

Otherwise, you're going to have a shiny, blinged-out Eclipse, that's slow as balls compared to a Supra you could have had...

That's good you got the hardtop, because 4 seat convertibles are for girls. Wanna talk about chassis flex...

Skip the Niteshade and use Lamin-X. Bit more expensive, but removable if you get in serious trouble with the law. Also harder to screw up (and looks better since niteshade is flat)

"Gotta pay to play", keep that phrase in mind when you eventually get a Supra. There are few cars that is more true about...
