"yellow" wagon

Nice car. I almost bit until I saw the interior. 98 R interior will reduce value as its not original. Still, I love the car.

What a shame :(. Thats DrPheta's car (Peter Phan) he had that car in Boston and sent it out to Cali for a motor build + 5 spd swap by DougK. Reason for the 98 interior is because the car was stolen in NY i think, vehicle was recovered but the seats were stolen. That car is gorgeous, sad to see it end up abandoned on another coast :(.

should be well maintained. but all the goodies are gone :(
tritons
stopteck
projectors
motor mods.

a lot of this car has been repainted: you'll notice the front fenders are wider than the bumper to.

they were removed and stretched, cut and welded to properly handle the mounting of the tritons with the stoptechs... zero rub :O

The modified body panels, paint work, different wheels, and different interior (whether you personally prefer it or not) to me means you cannot be asking top dollar. I actually prefer the diamond stitched alcantara too, but this car is far from original in multiple respects.

Details for what was stolen

Found her in Everett parked in a shopping mall. The tentative damage is:

Missing the following
- ECU
- TCU
- armrest
- floor mats
- rear seat cushions
- boost guage/pod
- T5-R Suede book/folder for manual
- full sized spare wheel
- radio
- cd changer
- valve cover (carbon fiber)
- front lower grill on the left of the tow hook


Damage
- left rear 1/4 panel dented/creased
- rear bumper scratched and dented like they backed up into something
- front spoiler cracked along left middle pillar
- keyed left rear 1/4 panel
- keyed hood

So, the wheels are still there (good thing I don't keep the lock in the car). However, the items missing are odd, and ignition isn't busted. Like the seat cushions and the armrest? I'm guessing they were taken/tossed in search of my key to the wheel locks. *shrug*

I also lost some small things like my jumper cables, cds, and unfortunately my car has been bastardized, and hopefully nothing else is wrong with it (like engine abuse, sugar in the gas tank, water in the oil, bend frame or suspension, etc.) *boo*

My insurance is covering it, but how much of it is the question. Will they total it? Will they repair it? Will they reimburse me enough to get her back to the way she was? I hope the hell so!

I had no idea Malden was known for auto theft. Well, too late, now. There wasn't anything outwardly unique about it besides the fact that she was mint (just did massive work to revive old age this past summer), the boost guage, and the suspension. It sucks now, cause next week I have 3 huge exams and have to deal with this. &)(#&)(&@)#!!!

i've never been so excited to see a listing, and then, slowly, I was very disappointed, haha. Wrong coast, wrong interior, and i prefer the 850 interior, the bumpers look weird, and that title isn't clean.

So 70 of these were made, how many do you think still exist, in unmolested condition? Factoring in people totaling them and over 17 years some just die, probably 20, 30?

What a foolish hack for drilling into the dash. That wagon is cool to look at until I start picking over the details. Definitely not collectors value.

Triton is the incorrect spelling for the wheels, they would be titans. Besides, those wheels aren't titans, they are Pegasus. The titans did not have "r" engraved on the spoke and they are one inch smaller than Pegasus wheels which came later on s60R's.
quoted for the lulz

i can't believe that thing went for nearly 9k
