    NICE RIDE!
    Only the wheels look small. Needs like 19s or 20s... to balance it out.

    I had no floormats when I bought my car(used)... decided to pick these up on ebay for 30 bucks, they have red stitching in them and look pretty good. Plus the stockers are like 80 bucks, for plain ones.

    I did ditch the stock plate about two weeks ago, but now I just have to holes in my bumper :(

    Heres the pic of the floormats (you can kinda see):

    No they're not too bad, but I wouldn't reccomend getting a 99 though. I have 29k on my car and havent had 1 problem.

    Most common problems:

    Alternator going out
    Fuel pump
    Sunroof trail racks breaking

    And of course there are trannies that go out but that is a rare rare occourance. If kept stock the auto tranny and manual both should last a long time if serviced properly.

    There have been some problems with people IMRC not opening up... this is what opens at 3300rpm to give that extra boost of power, like secondary butterflies. If you want to think of it on a simple basis, its basically vtec for the duratec. But yeah some people have had problems with that, but not often.
