Sweet..the tints look good. Oh man, now that you are here, you'll be getting into modding that car up really good. If you take some time to read up on this site about gutting your airbox, adding a 180 t-stat, intakes, exhuast and the like, that will be a real sleeper car.

Looks good man...nice deal too $1650...1992...nice

Ya...if you add it to your signature the for sure it will alway be there like mine.

To do that...see at the top right of the page..you should see "Profile" fill it in, add your model type, year, that kinda thing

that whole [img]image[[/img] thing that we discussed....will work in your signature space and it will always show up under your posts.

Now...try to keep the image under 35kb for our members on dial-up..

130 000 Thats not bad at all....some mods will actually help prolong the life of the car too....I'm sure some of the "pros" here will be able to help you out no problems

Whew..OK, well

1. A good well maintained 3800, I have seen 400 000- 500 000 kms, which is about 250 000 to 300 000 miles. But, that is a very well maintained car. I think, if you are diligent with the car, you could do 250 000 miles....I know the 3800 can. Some of the pros here will confirm and give you a better idea of what the 3800 is capable of for longevity.

2. To shrink the image down to avatar size, I use photshop, and change the image size to 100 pixels by 80 pixels, I think that is the max for avatar size on this forum.

3. 40kb...don't sweat it, thats ok for size I think....

Jeez 89, quit hogging the 1000th member all to yourself!
Yeah it took me a while to figure out all that picture stuff, felt like a jerk when I realized how simple it was.
