    Yep. Standard issue iPod, NIN album, DS lite, chewing gum. :p

    Some of the pics are blurry, but that's because it's a high-res camera and I get fidgety when trying to take pictures.

    That's the plan - I can't leave it alone entirely though, I already have wheels on order.

    Yeah, I think springs and i/h/e would be okay. Probably nothing more though.

    The dash actually isn't too bad. I expected it to be kind of annoying being able to potentially start a plantation with the square footage, but I don't even notice it.

    I didn't buy the car for fast. I bought it so I could have something new, that gets good gas mileage, and that I wouldn't have to worry about any major maintenance at all for at least 2 years. I have my Z-car for fast.

    That pic is with the parking brake engaged. When you disengage it, it moves closer to the shifter so it's not in the way at all. My knees don't hit anything when driving. My right leg rests nicely on the center console which I like. I'm around 6' as well, and the interior feels very well proportioned to me. I have no headroom issues, and the seating area is very well designed. The backseat is small, but who are we kidding here, it's not a suburban.

    I like. They're very comfy to drive, and the shift is butter sweet.

    Yo, don't tell the dealer I told you, but check your headliner and your front door seal for a gap. Most of the time, no big deal, but sometimes you'll get a 2-3 mm gap, usually worse on the driver side. If you do, take it back to the dealer and have them replace your headliner.
