Hello all! I've been lurking these forums for over a month now reading as much as I can about these awesome cars, and after working out a deal with a buddy a couple weeks ago, I was finally able to bring home my very own silver 02 bugeye tonight . Car is in great shape, stock, has a few miles, but what 7 year old car doesn't? It was a VERY fun, but also scary, ride home in this monster. First off, it was fun because of the 227HP-ness (I used to putt around in a 95 Civic) which I got to experience the majority of on the on-ramp to the freeway. Scary because this was only my second time driving stick (the first was my buddy Nate letting me try and get the hang of it on his WRX a week earlier...that brave soul). But basically by the time I got home, my starts were already smoother, and I was going through the gears just fine, although still going into 3rd too soon...ah well, it takes time.
Anyways, I just wanted to say hi and let you guys know this is one solid community you've got here; sure beats the crap outa the stuff I had to put up with on the Honda forums the past years.
