Well, I hope they work...if not, I may enlist Kaizai's and/or Delval's help!<P>These are some pictures I took today, it was raining earlier on so the exhaust got dirty!

Everyting else fit just about perfectly!<P>Yannis<P><P>

Thanks guys...I feel good about it, too plus I love the way the car sounds and drives. The exhaust did get a bit louder (just a little) after a hundred miles as someone at work warned me. I wish I could modify more and faster but I feel blessed to have been able to do "all this" in the approximately 18 months that I have owned the car. Having a little one makes you think twice about spending money on a car. <P>Johann, my pictures are still there so whatever "sabotage" you did, try again! j/k. <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/tongue.gif"><P>I was just surprised to have seen my user name as part of the web address in your post!<P>Yannis <P>

The new exhaust looks AWESOME! (And I like the Doberman shot, too...) Hey, those aren't the stock valve-stem caps, are they? Mine are black. Do Tethys rims come with fancier caps, or are those something you bought separately? Just wondering.<BR><BR>

Re: (Lisa62)

Hi Lisa,<p>Thanks! Yes, those valve caps are "BBS" steel caps; swiped them out of a 2002 C70 Coupe. The customer absolutely hated them. I told him in a New York minute "I will take them"!!! I can't see why he did not like them but, hey, who am I to argue? <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emwink.gif" BORDER="0"><p>As far as the Doberman pic...I wish it was more clear...next time I take picture. He is a very handsome dog; he truly is my buddy. He loves both my wife and my son but he and I have a very special bond. I have never had a dog as devoted and ready to do whatever for me...If only humans were half as devoted this world would be a much better and safer place! BTW, his name is Ermes (a.k.a. Mercury in Latin); he was one of the 12 Olympian gods in Greek mythology. he was the messenger and had wings on his ankles because he could "fly". I named my dog that because he is extremely fast when he runs; I think only a Greyhound or a Whippet could outrun him... <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emsmileo.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>Yannis
