    I bought an EP3 that needs love.

    Hello,

    Last night I purchased a 2003 EP3 Si hatchback. It is in terrible shape, but it runs and stops and has some seats. It is going to take some doing, but my initial goal is to erase some of the years and miles that have been put on the old girl. Fortunately I do not need it as a daily driver or anything like that since I am not 100% sure that it should really be driven as it is.

    The good: I was looking for a project and I got one. All of the electronics work, no CEL, runs, drives, stops, motor sounds well. AC is frosty. I only paid $1500...

    The bad: 319000 miles and it looks the part. Many door dents, fenders need to be replaced. Cracked paint on bumpers. Driver seat fabric only barely exists.

    I will get pictures of it later...for my own records and for posterity.

    Good luck with the project! Traffic on this site has dropped dramatically but there's still a wealth of knowledge.
