Here's my 2003 Variant. Basically stock, save for summer rims and tint. No major plans - as much as I love the car, I'll admit to some nervousness about the engine, and don't want to give any excuses for denying warranty work. I'll stick to small stuff for now, though I would really like to do a Bilstein/H&R or KW coilover suspension.

Engine: 4.0L W8 (DOHC, 4-valve/cyl; 270hp @ 6000rpm, 273lb/ft @ 2750rpm)
Exhaust: Stock
Transmission: 6-speed; 4motion
Suspension: Stock
Wheels: Summer - 17" BBS RG-R (black anthracite); Winter - OE 17" BBS Madras
Brakes: Stock (f-r: 12.6" vented; 10.6" vented)
Exterior: Pacific Blue (W8-specific); shorty antenna
Interior: Tan leather; euroswitch; tint (HP Quantum 28%)
Ice: Phatbox (w/custom cable for Variant installation, and 80GB cartridge)
Other: Monster Mats, Gorilla Gear, Sunglass holder
History: Bought used in Jan 2006 at HJ Pfaff in Toronto w/52k kms by one previous owner; CPO to 2009 or 120,000km

Wow, that sits nice for stock suspension! Of course, you have the "sport" package, so that makes a difference.

Six speed! You suck! j/k

She looks great! Nice variant!
