I love the '97-'98 Talons, especially in that color. Your car is bee-yoo-tee-ful:) But PLEASE do not put a body kit on or change anything about the exterior of the car, it looks great the way it is.

body kit= No
Wheels / Tires- I have too...I recently curbed one of the 17's and another is bent plus the tires are going bad. I have 17x7.5 Rota Subzero's in black on the way :).

I was just saying.....it's been my experience that the people with the rarer-color AWD Talons/Eclipses always seem to find ways to ruin the great-looking stock body appearance of them by throwing on some ugly body kit or huge wing. Glad to see you're doing things the right way :D

Excellent car. Your engine bay looks really nice and clean. Keep up the good work, those rims will look badass on your car. Where did you order the Rotas from?

Thanks! I agree totally... I hate huge wings and bulky body kits. When I first saw her I was like thats the one instantly. I am trying to go for a stealthy appearance, my roof is black so thats why I considered the black subzeros. I have never seen a AWD talon in my year this color, so yeah I think it is rare. My buddy just bought a gst in your orange color, he is getting it repainted the stock color, its pretty...

I ordered them through Aeromotiv.

Call them up and ask for Matt, he is a nice fella. He hooked me up with mine for 525 shipped :D ! They are over stocked so I'm sure they will help you out. Hope this helps...

Last day of school, an S-10 tore my front bumper to pieces, this is a brand new bumper and I left the decal off to keep it clean looking. I have the decal chillin in my room...he he.

car's very nice, much like mine (http://www.dsmtuners.com/gallery/showgallery.php?ppuser=3148&cat=500&thumb=1) =). however, imo it's begging to be dropped. a nice set of pro-kits (and appropiate shocks) would do wonders for the looks of the car not to mention handling.

yah yah i know, i should do that too and i am planning on it, really!

I still have the pink badging on mine. I did swap out the front Eagle for a blaack one for contrast. I can't find black badging, they didn't make it for 97-98. In 9 days I will have prokit springs for mine can't wait to drop it a bit. Hope I don't have to camber adjust it to much. My name is George also. Hey how do you put a pic in your sig.

For now just the stock ones. But prolly KYB adjustable. If I can figure out how to post I will. It will be on my website for sure.
Lastnight I ran a 12.867@103.32mph.

I am putting coilovers on it today, camber kit will be here next week as well as my subzero's :). I agree the stock gap is hideous on the awd cars. The only other exterior mod I might do is a carbon fiber hood for weight reduction reasons and it will clash good with my paint, they are sellin on ebay for 260!! And maybe some HID's, god I love seen audi's and bmw's from a distance, looks awesome.
