I’m guessing it’s the lighting. Given it’s got blank plates instead of fog lights and cloth seats instead of leather, I’d bet heavily that it’s a Base and either lighting makes those vents look silver or they were swapped on for some reason.
There should be a little plastic piece that says “SRS Airbag” on it. Guessing it covers a bolt/screw holding the door panel on.
Thanks! I would be happy to, but it’d have to be on a freelance basis. I have a day job and my own website/social channels for LGBT car/motorsport enthusiasts that I run. But would love to contribute here and there.
#nerdalert over here! Hah, thanks though. These aren’t bad cars, per se, but they are very misunderstood and I’m a fan of cutting through the BS hot takes with facts from someone who’s kept one going for ~14 years.
LOL, David doesn’t fly places. He drove the $500 XJ with leather seats. It looks rust-free at night in the rain! And I didn’t catch fire while using the heated passenger seat.
