Finding Dory

Ladies and gents, I'd like to introduce Dory. Finding Dory was long and difficult. I spent at least half a year looking for a new daily driver...just happened to be blue, so I thought "Dory" was a fitting name . She's going to give Snow White some rest from daily driver duties. haha



She had a little under 21,200 miles on her when I picked her up a few days ago.
This pic was taken when I pulled into my insurance office.


After giving her a much needed vacuum and interior wipe down, I installed some pure white interior LEDs in the interior.



As mentioned, she's the new DD, so I won't be going crazy on the mods; but stay tuned, I do have some other stuff on the way. haha

Holy crap, it hasn't even been broken in yet! Is it an '07 or '08? Great color choice.

Look at all that ground clearance! I bet this one won't get stuck at work.

I still have my Tein S.Tech springs from the Vios, so Dory will eventually be lower. Haha. Don't think enough to get stuck like Snow White. Hahaha

Dory is an '08 stick, btw.

Any reasoning behind "Bailey?"

Installed white LEDs in the reverse lights. The OEM ones weren't good at all (worse than the FR-S, which I didn't think were possible).




Also installed LEDs in the parking lights and rear license plate light. Didn't bother taking pics of those tho.

lol. Couldn't pass her up. I wiped off the coolant spray under the hood to see if the WP needs to be replaced, or was replaced but just never documented (would be the one maintenance that wasn't). So far, don't see the line.

Was looking for one for well over half a year. Ended up finding Dory 400 miles away from me.

She was $5k, which, in my eyes, was one helluva deal!

It took me three months to find mine, almost identical to yours, cheaper, but way higher miles. Yours is a steal! Especially in California. Great job finding it. Gotta love those low gas prices. Everybody "needs something bigger" all of the sudden.

Installed VLEDs HVA LEDs in the rear turn signals. OEM on the left, VLEDs on the right for comparison.

No reason, just that she loves Bailey from the movie.

Love the lighting mods!
