It'* Me! I have a Dark Blue 02 SSEi, still completely stock (till it'* paid off). I've got the usual problems: wheel bearing, window motors in the back, pressure control soleniod, intermediate shaft, and blown struts. I'm working on getting all this dealt with this year so next year it will be ready to roll. New exhaust, interchangeable pullys for the SC, intake, progammer, bigger TB. Oh yeah. I'll try to make one of those crazy signatures you guys all have with a picture of it some time.

Welcome; From one SSEi owner to another It'* hard not to do anything to your car, I must admit as soon as you start doing one thing it'll have you spending big on your personal modifications.

I'd definitely do chrome. What do have now, the standard 5 spoke silver painted aluminum wheels? Welcome to Bonneville Club!

Welcome to the club!

As they said, it won't say stock. You might think it will now, but it won't. You'll say, "oh well I'll do just this one mod." Then, well it can't hurt to do one more. Then, you end up with a lot of stuff done to your car and you think back and say "what was I thinking when I thought I would keep it stock."

I don't think I've ever kept any car stock.

right on guys. ive actually had it for about a year and a half, and a new baby and money issues are really all that have kept it stock thus far. plus all that other crap that needs fixed first. i was thinking chrome myslef, a smooth 5 spoke with some detail, nothing to over the top (like sylvester stalone, lol). cant wait for rocky 6!!!!!!!
