My name is Salo... I traded in my first RS 17 frost white 11000 miles first owner around 6 months ago for a VW Atlas (needed the space for the family growing). I miss the feeling of shifting gears and the beautiful look,sound of the RS. So fu*k it, I bought another one, but this time 18 RR LE (used 13k sad face) (but for $31000 happy face). Picking it up Monday and can't wait to mod it again and not letting it go for nothing. I feel like this is the last really awd manual car that they will make, with the power it has. Anyways glad to be back

Looks awesome. The only thing that doesn't is the Ma. required front plate!

Or you can wrap that one in carbon fiber. The stock replacement is absurd, like $600+. Plenty of eBay knockoffs that look just as good too.

When I replaced mine I left the bottom connected and just reached in and pulled the tabs off to get to the cover if you want to save an hour.

How the heck did you find a low mileage '18 for 31k.... You got an insane deal.
