Hello from Va

Wanted to share my new pride and joy!
2004 vintage. Already in the touch up process, fixed the folding mirrors, polished the black window outer trim, cleaned up interior. Did oil/filter change.
Now to tackle some coding, waiting for pasoft adapter to arrive. I also seem to have front bags leaking as both will get deflated overnight.
Other than that looking at Avin for a touch of modern tech and then miles, miles and more miles.

Welcome! What did you use to polish out the shadow line trim? Looks like that came out great.

Hi everyone! I just bought a 2004 Sapphire Black Metallic 4.8is. It has two-tone cream/anthracite interior, and is gorgeous!!

The PO only had winter wheels, So I bought a staggered set of style 214’s for it along with spacers, hub rings, and extended bolts.

I’d love to drop a few pics as that’s what we all want, but I don’t have an online pictures site at the moment

The VIN is: 5UXFA93594LE81357

Congratulations!

Good idea to put year and model in your signature in case you have questions in the future.

You don't need to pay for image hosting or even create an account - I use i-m-g-b-b.com (remove the hyphens). I upload my image(s) and the site provides various "embed codes" to post on forums. I usually use the embed code labelled as "BBCode Full Image (linked)".

This code from imgbb provides BOTH the hyper-link to a page containing the image AND the raw IMG code to display the image on the forum page.

HTML Code:

Viola!
