Yah. I think those things are for giving people rides and stuff. Not that anybody wants to ride in this car. My old Rx-7 had full interior, quiet exhaust, and a normal suspension. People still wouldn't ride with me. When I drive the Mercedes or the Highlander everyone wants a ride. Lame.

Really? You look at KBB? You should give Tony 10 grand for his M3..

Got back from Asia and decided to work on my Rx-7 again. Swapped out the ricer exhaust, changed my oil, and bolted back on a few pieces that I took off when I was working on earlier this summer. Overall the car looks and drives a lot better now. With the quieter exhaust, I can almost daily this thing if it wasn't for the harsh suspension and stripped interior.

I did wash the car today but I didn't get a chance to take pictures. Here is what it looked like after I put the exhaust on:

It's a Racingbeat Catback setup. It's what I've always wanted for this car but I couldn't justify forking over 650 for a catback exhaust. I found this guy at Pittsburgh that was willing to trade me for my old exhaust with no cash involved. We even did the swap in his garage. Hooray for patience?

Now I can finally take this thing out at night to touge without waking up the neighbors!
