Re: Evan's 05 TL 6MT

Couldn't find the this thread is worthless without pics smily.

Lol congrats man, can never go wrong with those, that will be a great daily. 3G TL is such a ridiculously good used car value.

Interior is gray or black I'm guessing?

Re: Evan's 05 TL 6MT

Its now about 6 months after I said I'd upload some pictures, so I will.

-As you can see here, the dash is cracked just like 90% of the other TLs out there

As for modifications, I found a Aspec Front Lip, that I will probably paint and throw on the car in Spring.

I really need to get some better pictures of this, but it's currently about to undergo a lot of maintenance, such as clutch, pressure plate, flywheel, timing belt, water pump, mounts, etc.....

Aside for maintenance, I bought Tein Coilovers for it about a week after purchasing the car, and I've put an S2000 weighted OEM knob in place of the TL one.

Re: Evan's 05 TL 6MT

6 months later the clutch is still going, couldn't have been that bad haha. You doing that job yourself?

Cool color combo, I bet a thorough detail would do wonders for that interior.

ATLP made a mean exhaust for this car.

The clutch still moves, but it slips on anything over a quarter throttle now. Its getting really bad.

I need to detail the interior as well.

As for exhaust, I've been thinking of a J-pipe with either XLR8 or ATLP. We will see

That is clean AF man. Those are my favorite body style TLs. I wish I could find one.

Oh its far from clean. Not even in the ballpark. This car has exterior issues like you would not believe, but it's nothing I cannot fix. It's really the only reason that I own it lol
