Fucking potholes! Fucked up my tire real good... Got a light scratch on the rim didnt bend at all, good thing there the OEM upgrade ones made by Enkei.

Also im not been too happy with the Kumho AST tires. Quality wise it sucks I had two buldges on the front one replaced it with the warranty then landed on this pothole and fucked up the front and still managed to get a tiny buldge on my rear tires. Stay away from Kumho, im replacing my tires for some higher quality brand.

Huge buldge



Oh wait another one in the same tire!


And the little one on the rear tire

Yeah, potholes suck. Still haven't hit a bad one yet though.

I haven't posted much on this site in the past several months, but I've had my car for like 5 months now and did a little bit to it. Not a whole bunch. It's a 2003 Ford Zx2.

A day or 2 before I bought it.


The nice dent it came with.


Pinstripe taken off.


Added aftermarket fogs in the place where the stock fogs come on premium versions of my car.


At a Zx2 meet last week. The Sky owner used to own the black Zx2 w/ the body kit.


I've also replaced the tires and got Michelin Primacy MXV4's. I have a Pioneer head since the stock was crap. I also got a PDR guy to come remove the dents. I would post pics, but it's limit 5 pics per post...so yeah... Full Photobucket of pics.

It's been a decent car so far. Only had to replace the thermostat and a vacuum hose. I don't plan to do any engine mods anytime soon. Maybe a CAI someday when I have some money to spend on my car, but not much else. Any engine mods I might do would be for gas mileage mostly. If curious, the engine is a 4 cyl Zetec, basically the same thing that comes in Contours and '00-'04ish Focuses.

^^ Looks like a nice car!! Great for your first car I would say. Great to have something reliable.

As for potholes... I hit every one!! haha, not really, but having a truck, with decent size tires, it's not something I have to worry about, lol. We get a lot of bad ones out here... Last year my friend hit one in his car, when a group of 5 of us went to the movies... it was like -30 with the windchill. Cracked the whole rim!!



Intersting fact I found out today... I was reading on the Ford engine series, because someday I want to swap a V8 in my ranger. I was reading about the 3 different versions of the 351, then I started reading about the duratec engines that are available in other countries mainly. And found out a V12 version of the duratec line is used in the Aston Martin cars.

Oh, and the 6.2L modular V8 BOSS engine is coming out next year in the SVT Rapter!!

If it's in city you can make the city pay for the damages. They are responsible for keeping the roads in good condition.

the car was a theft recovery, it was just missing the seats and had a rip in the headliner.
Besides the suspension, the work wheels, and the oem kit it's fully stock. tint is coming soon along with a nice audio system. all feedback and comments good or bad are appreciated. enjoy.

The wheel fitment is pretty nice and flush, just not a fan of the wheels.
