congrats man, I wish I would have had that option when my next car came into plan

My advice, get an oasis test done on the car and make sure the wiring harness recall was performed

98 Corolla LE 1.8L DOHC 1ZZFE
TEIN H.Tech Springs
Tokico HP series Struts
Short ram air intake
Tsudo Axel Back Exhaust

... if a jelly fish stung me.. would you pee on the wound?

any ford dealer can do it, they basically take your VIN number and run it through the ford network to see all of the recalls performed.

I was told the 98's Wiring harness has a tendency to go bad, much like the 95's Ive seen cases of people with bad harnesses in their 98's

Either way, learn something new every day... Still couldnt hurt to have an oasis test ran. there are a couple other little recalls that might still need to be done.

Well, I'm about to complete my BS at UofM. Good to see another WLW student here. Man, I haven't been to that school in ages. Last I saw they had a red LED welcome screen! (I'm really old school ) Do you guys still have the chaldeans driving their Escalades in the parking lot? Don't ever park there in your tour, people can't drive worth ish. Well, that is unless you can park in the honor student lot. Regardless, I took the bus and drove an Aerostar my senior year. Man, I feel old now!

Good luck w/school, man. Ay, is Mrs. Golden still a counselor there?

HAh! Parking in that lot was a nightmare. Aside, from all the idiots that drove there, there would be broken glass all along the parking lot, total PITA. Good luck w/the parking.
