    meh, those motors are garbage. ej257 owns. The 2.2 has cooling issues and its a crusty old block that you have to use standalone, bleh.

    man if you went thru the trouble of repainting the car, why use something so common? I realize rally blue is cool and all but i wouldve gone with something different... like steel blue mica :cool:

    I want the 2.5 liter, i like the low end grunt.

    6spd. :)

    its rally blue pearl (only came on 98-99s) which is a different color than world rally blue. IT is a bit lighter and a mucher nicer color. The car was originally RBP so I wanted to keep it vintage, it was also cheaper to not do a color change. Had I gone a different color it would have been BMW dark blue that the 325s come in. I did not due steel blue mica because that is what everyone who does a repaint does. :p

    the rally blue pearl is similar to the world rally blue of the GDs. The dark blue is very different from both.

    oh, its similar to it, but the bmw is lighter blue

    nope, just have it gutted to do the wiring and replace the carpet :) Going to have spec-c interior :p

    They are not I don't believe although the 22b had a similar ones. I'm not sure which JDM cars had them, however they do not make them anymore.
