    cool.

    I came across my holy grail Gen 2 Rt/10...Silver with Congac interior (only built 50 in that color combo) on ebay in BC (I think) a year ago. At the time I couldnt make it happen and sadly had to let it pass.

    That car looks like it needs some paint correction, I would use another example for the color reference.

    viper paint of the era was not particularly good. cars are very hit and miss in terms of factory quality

    I had a Silver 99 GTS, it was one of the good ones, but the color is more forgiving also.

    Seems like regular Gen 2 Coupes are in that range or higher so IMO yes, I looked it up last night but cant remember exactly they made about 200 of them (ACR) in 02

    I would go ACR over FE any day of the week.

    Rare, more power (smooth tubes and K&N), better suspension, fog light delete and the best wheels. Lower the car on the factory coilovers and add some wheel spacers and it really cleans up the look.

    I think you are right. I liked colour scheme better on FEs. I initially thought it was ACR FE not no

    Hows the ride on ACR?

    It's good. I prefer it to the standard suspension because the car is flat in the corners. At a minimum, if you don't go ACR, pick up a set of BC coilovers.
