Stopped by the post office to grab a flat rate box, came back out and when I tried to start it, the key was loose. Turned it all the way and there was no springy-ness lol. Kept fiddling with it and got it started, went home and took the lock cylinder out and found this, and I broke the black plastic around the steering column to get it out cause I didn't have anything to take the damn torx screws out. Ordered another lock cylinder from work but it won't be here til thursday.

same here, before winter comes I have to replace mine. I don't mind HIDs i'd just have to order the white not the blue. Honestly if i can get some bright lights and replace my fogs with some offroading lights i'll be happy. I mean the bumper cover is coming off in a few weeks anyways.

It does look nice, black ext, tan leather int, snow flake wheels, no major rust visible and Flow Master muff. I offered him $650. He may take it due to the 12 mpg.
Do I smell another "repair thread disguised as a build thread, which later becomes a build thread"?.....hmmm that sounded shorter in my head, anyone got anything?

LOL It seems everything I buy ends up as a "build". It must be some kind of madness.

TYC has a very nice OE style head light. Check ebait. SilverStar bulbs seem to work well.

Ironically enough I was just wondering the same thing. I just re-wired my fog/drive lights and now they're brighter than my headlights! That's just sad.

It is sad, I drive with my fog lights on quite a bit too. Might buy some LED's for my fog lights lol Better than putting them in my headlamps! Can anyone name a vehicle with worse headlights? I don't feel like spending $100 for clear headlights so that I can see, and I don't wanna try modding it. I guess I would just rather complain... it's easier and cheaper haha

This. TYCs are great for a budget OEM replacement housing. Most repair shops use TYC lights when doing the repairs. Their pattern is pretty close to stock.

If you want to spend a little more money, these are definitely worth it. I 100% stand by no HIDs either in headlights with reflective lens housings. Reflective lens housings are designed to work with halogen bulbs, not HIDs.

I used to have an old Volvo 940 p.o.s. I couldn't tell if my lights were on except that the dash was lit. Other than that, I used to make sure that the lights did in fact turn on before driving some times. With this vehicle, I can tell, just not very well.
