    Cool Hi New guy...

    I just hope that this isnt one of those places that craps on new guys if they dont own one yet...

    I see myself in a Viper within the next year. A nearly life long dream that should come true. Ive been reading for about 5 minutes and already you guys are making me regret the decision to get an 06 in Grey that matches my Mazda 6. Sigh. More power, better trans, better rear end... SIGH.

    I REALLY like the 06 hood and front end and the fact that it doesnt say SRT on it, call me old school, but i prefer the nomenclature of the old Dodges from the 60-70's where R/T meant you had something different. Not that a Viper isnt different mind you...

    Anywho, "hi" and all that...

    Searching for the one you want is a big part of the fun. When it's finally in your garage.........man what a rush.

    You need a garage before a Viper. You're a little ahead of yourself son

    What part of the country are you located in? Somewhere south? Free2go gave some pretty good advice.... Definitely something to consider.

    Nothing likes to sit out in the sun, or rain, or snow (maybe?). I guess I'm lucky that my cars go from my own garages to the parking garage at work, so they don't bake, but if I didn't have a garage to put it in I'd certainly look into storage or other means before getting the car. You can tell a 14 year old car that has baked. At the very least I would invest in one of those ShelterLogic getups. One of those has to be cheaper than replacing the UV baked headlights.

    I would have also figured a Mazda would get the DD status out of the Viper/Mazda6 pair.

    When its not raining, this is DD, the Mazda would be for snow. I normally drive less than 7k a year as it is.

    Something I forgot to say before, I said years ago that if I ever owned a Viper and happened to deliver pizza for a living, I would still drive the Viper. To me spending that much money on something and NOT driving the ever living piss out of it is just... Unthinkable imo

    Thanks Ive been looking for a section that talks about car audio or any other non mechanical mods but i cant seem to find it?

    Also, if its ok to post a pic, this was the one i wanted (i think its gone but the color at least). Reading here i think its NOT a 2006 GTS? Also what color is that? My Mazda is that color and its called Tungsten Grey.

    There are a lot of threads on our forums - you just have to look around. A lot of the modification threads, though, are reserved in the Members Only section, but there are some that are public.
    If you click on a thread and it states 0 threads, like on Interior and Exterior - be sure to go to the "Thread Display Options" section and change the drop down menu on "show Threads from" to "beginning of time".
    Hope this helps.

    Well something is messed up, all of those posts are from every aspect and only one that i found was about a CD player and it was from 2000. Let me ask this way, does ANYONE ever mess with car audio or interior mods? Or, what am i missing?

    No its ok, i guess it just strikes me as odd that these types of mods are so few i guess, or maybe no one documents them. But really, thanks

    If you type in AUDIO in the search box, a lot of different threads come up. Perhaps you can find some suggestions there.

    Hey, i read the FAQ on avatars, but it doesnt answer this question: is there a certain post count or time lapse that has to occur before you can use one?
