quit fretting, wait til you see it.

It's either a 6-speed car, or it's a base 5-speed car that someone painted BRG and put the wood steering wheel and ebrake handle on. Which one is more likely?

Edit: not my MSM, that's an '04 LS I sold here at the dealer last week.

Also: this discussion is in the wrong thread.

<p>So apparently with that VIN decoder you can pick a model from the dropdown, so it could be any of these I think:<br /><img alt="" src="https://i.imgur.com/pMQxe0X.png" /></p>

****. If you ******* stop ******* posting maybe I can ******* fix your god damned threads.

If it has 16" wheels, it's at least an LS with 6-speed, sport brakes, and 3.9 diff.

If it has all that plus the wood wheel/****, it's an SE.

The wheels and interior stuff are fairly popular to swap onto a base model.

I don't know what happened to the SE badges though. I'm guessing LS with wheel and **** installed, or maybe that was an option?

Those tail lights though, worth around 1/2 your cost.

You guys are missing the obvious identifier. THE CAR IS BRG. that was only on the '01 SE.

<p>That's a long trip lol. Probably not worth the gas. I'm going to look at options, see how much it is to fix it, then either fix it, or sell it broken for a lot less.</p>

<p>Should I throw the sports brakes on my car for the season if they are in fine condition? How much of an upgrade over stock 1.6 brakes will they be. I didn't want to buy them because I want to get a BBK but if I have them already then...</p>
