Hey all, my wife and i just bought a slightly used 2008 Speed 3 GT, and its absolutely amazing! we have had an 06 Scion xB for 3 years now, and its tough to drive after getting into the 3..going from the 3's clutch to the box's clutch gives me cancer :) Not much done yet, has a set of Drag DR17 wheels of its own "mod". anyways, here's a few night time pics, as i've been a slacker as far as getting day time pics.





i had to get a pic of the box in here, with the ninja cop in the back ground.


i just liked this angle.. dunno why :)

thanks! we bought it with them on there.. the dealer tried using them as a way to jack up the price but when i told them to throw the stock wheels on they backed down :) glad they did because i like how they look!

the sales woman said something about "ride leveling" so that must have been what she meant, thanks!

i was poking around the engine the other day and noticed that there was a tube clamp in the wrong place on the bov.. so that might mean it's been removed before eh?

Cutout is to put your tow hook in that is in the hatch next to the spare I think.

yep, it's located in the upper left corner of the foam surrounding our spare.
you just pop off the cap on the front bumper and screw in the hoop and blamo!, an easily accessible tow hook for the ms3. :)
