Default GXP Pictures (Finally)

Yes I know, I promised them a long time ago but in my defense I didn't want to take pictures until I got the first coat of wax on it (and the spray wash just opened this week). So after 4 months of owning her, here are the beautiful pictures for y'all to enjoy.







I removed the dealer sticker shortly after taking these pictures. I was running out of daylight and wanted to get the pictures done first.






And now for the cringe picture. I plan on getting this fixed after I get rid of my other car (2008 Mitsubishi Lancer). Just can't afford the body work with 2 car payments at the moment. Basically I'm going to be ordering a whole new uniside and the body shop will cut it above and below the rear door area and splice it in. The shop told me they would also put an anti corrosion coating on the back to prevent it from ever happening again.

Meguiars Gold Class. Got it on sale once and has been the only container of wax I've ever had to purchase lol.

They are prone to ONE issue: the head gaskets. Here'* the fix. It can be expensive if you pay someone to do it. If you're pretty handy yourself, do the job and save a load of money (like a thousand or two). After that it'* a good motor. Good power band, great exhaust note, and just fun to drive. Everything else is just random issues that happen just like stuff happens on any other motor.
