    The previous owner of my car was Bulgarian and I have to admit it was in pretty bad shape. I've already spent more money replacing bad parts and remodeling it than what I bought it for but is worth it. What can I say... I love the car

    Wow, nice! I've always liked the Calibra! What kind of engine does it have?

    It's a C20XE - 2.0, 150bhp @ 6000rpm stock

    I already got some mods going like a Lexmaul RAM Induction, a phaseV +25hp chipped ECU, K&N air filter, 60mm direct exhaust line with a Remus backbox.

    Looks pretty cool, especially the flat colour to it, there arent any of those here in the states.

    It looks like the fron of a Citroen and the back of a BMW 850-860 lol

    Wow...that JVC looks great. Are you going to change the backlights?

    Yesterday I did a little run test and got to 240kmph (~150mph) @ 6100rpm.

    Since the redline is about 8000rpm it can go a lot faster and it's not even properly tuned

    If only Opel/Vauxhall came to North America. It's too bad that all we get are the...

    Saturns

    Those have to be the worst, most underpowered, ugliest cars on the road. They finally carry the Astra here, unfortunately I now dislike it because it wears that awful badge. I wonder how many mousepower the Ion has...

    Couldn't you just import one from Germany, for example?
    Or is it too expensive, as it is here in Portugal?

    In order to legalize a Calibra from Germany, we must pay about €2,000 (~$3,000) just for the burocratic stuff, plus the retail price, transportation.. it would be around 4,000€ and for that price we can buy a Calibra in good condition already legal.

    I got mine for about 2,000€ with an added bonus, the Lexmaul RAM Induction with retail price of about 700€ (~$1,000)
