Hey, welcome aboard!

Some people call the E a toaster but with the kind of weather you've been having in the 'Peg perhaps an icebox would be more appropriate?

Oh, and congrats on the e. Btw, pics are good. Really good.

Welcome and as a fellow pegger great choice of vehicle - perfect vehicle for our crappy winters.

If you don't have them already I recommend a set of winter tires on steel rims - will turn your front wheel drive into (well nearly) a four wheel drive - the difference is amazing

See you on the road.

I'm up for it - assuming spring gets here before next winter sets in :sad: -39 this morning was a slap in the face.

well for march this stinks lol!...just got the front drivers and passengers windows tinted today.....i have my dash apart right now, the "e" never came with a radio, the last owner had an aftermarket and took it out when the lease was up.....i was gonna go aftermarket as i used to be a car audio buff when i was a bit younger, but decided to try out the 7 speaker system....found me a factory radio for 100 shipped in mint condition.....so while i am waiting for the radio to show up, i am painting the trim around the center consol high gloss black......so far so good, just shot my second coat.....hopefully i will get the clear coat done tomorrow....when i get it all back together i will take a couple pics....i hope it turns out lol:D

I knew I should have posted my stock stereo for sale. What year E radio are you getting? I upgraded to an 05, which plays MP3s. Now I have my stock 04 sitting in the closet. Let me know if your stereo doesnt work out.

I wanted to tint my windows as well...maybe limo tint in the back. Where did you go to tint yours? Did they do a good job?

damit lol...my e is an 04, i woulda loved to get one locally lol....oh well, thats how it goes i guess.....for tinting i have always used autostripe....willy does an amazing job everytime, and is priced very well....i did 35% on the 2 fronts....20 would looked nicer, but keep in mind 50 is the legal limit....in my opinion, 50 doesnt even look tinted....the backs are already factory privacy so, no point in goin any darker on those.....
