My baby, older pics, now its a bit lowered with sport H&R springs and has EPIC Direzza Sport Z1 Star Spec tires, producing a great daily driver/track car setup. Though I'm gonna regret getting those tires once the freezing temps/snow comes along.

How the hell did you get a SEAT registered in the US?

I once saw an older SEAT Ibiza in Los Angeles, but I think it had Mexican plates.

I do like the SEATs; You've got a nice car.

And my wifes 2009 Volvo V70 2.4D R Design, another good car but we can't fit 3 child seats in the back so it's being replaced by a VW Touran 2.0D Highline which should be delivered in the next month or so.
