Looks pretty good so far. What did you use to paint your wheels? Or did you
have done at a shop? Also where in PA are you? Almost the same car I bought but went with the black instead.

Your's is the first SX I have seen with painted wheels, looks sharp. I have a box here with my satin black paint and clear ready to go on the rims, but I'm waiting for the time to do it... *sigh*

So a sedan in orange, huh... not even available in Canada. Looks really nice.

I think I may have actually test driven it. 6sp? Leather and sunroof? I was there on 2/27 and bought the black one.

Kinda funny. When did you get it?

Nope never been a fan of leather. To hot in the summer to cold in the winter (yeah they are heated, but not cooled) and sunroof never cared for either. My old firebird had t tops and I probably took them off 5 times in 3 years. So they werent priorities for me so when I found this black sx 6sp I took it. If they had them installed I probably would have bought it amyway, just didn't want to wait to find another black sedan sx 6sp mt.
