I am new to the Baja world having received my 2005 Turbo with leather as a Christmas present this year. I only mention the leather as this option included the polished six spoke wheels and a few other things.

I am totally enjoying the ride. I wanted a small, fast pickup and the Baja is just the thing!

I wanted to say thank you to all of you who post in the forum. I am learning from your experiences. Since I have a warranty to 100,000 miles I will not be doing any performance mods that could affect the warranty. My Baja had 62000 miles when I received it.

The Baja had a few blemishes which I am correcting and repairing. I am almost there.

Nice! and welcome!

You could replace the airfilter with a OEM fit K&N one, spark plugs with NGK Laser Platinum ones and get some Hella Supertones for now. That shouldnt affect the warranty.

I recommend some HIDs too. But not sure how that might affect the warranty.

Oh, and theres the SPT battery tie down , oil filler cap and valve caps for a bit of dress.

oh, and this;

Default Speaking of Extras

I did add a set of Primacy™ MXV4® 225/60R16 98H last week. The tires that were on the Baja were smaller than stock and made by B.F. Goodrich. They were a little hard riding.

The Primacy tire provides a really smooth ride. I have not had a chance to check out the handling on wet surfaces, however, I tend to be a Michelin man. I considered the Potenza but decided to stay with Michelin.

I used to have to run a lot in sand (beach) in my job, but I do not have to do that now.

either get a flikr or similar image hosting account (most are free to a certain bandwidth of info) and then either post a link to the album or use the image button on here and paste the address to one pic.

for car stuff i like to start a cardomain page and you can link pictures from there or direct people to it, also in your NASIOC profile you can use it as your "home page" link.

see ya around town.
