Default Hello from France

Hi!

My name is Remi, 25yo, I live in France near Paris for now. I spent two years studying in California where I fell in love with Dodge!

I owned a 1998 Dodge Neon Coupe 2.0L MTX during my first year, it was my first car. I just loved it! We had so much fun with this car, cruising from San Francisco to Las Vegas... A Dodge RAM parked on my right smashed the right door, and made so much damages that the car got salvaged by the insurance... I was really sad to let her go!

After a year in France I went back to San Francisco and bought a 2002 Dodge Stratus 2.4L ATX. Tranny failed after 2 weeks, I guess now that was the reason for its low price ^^
Anyway the garage put a remanufactured tranny in it, and it ran great

I went back in France and found a job, which allowed me to get my first 1999 Chrysler 300M. As a student, I thought I would never be able to afford such a car, at least in France... So I was really happy!
She was all black with 19" rims, black leather memory seats, HID headlamps with projectors, less than 100'000 kms.
Unfortunately I crashed this baby one year later. I got out of the car without a stich!

As she saved my life I bought another 300M, a 2000/2001 this time.
Metalic gray with black leather trim, heated memory seats with electrochromatic dimming center mirror. Factory 17" rims with projector headlamps.
I added HID headlamps in the factory projectors, upgraded the OTIS to EVIC, replaced the factory 240 kph cluster with a 150 mph to make the car more "americanized", and installed a pair of sequential amber turn signals.
She now has about 30'000 miles on it! Almost new!

Being a Mopar fan, I got my family to move the Chrysler too and got a 2000 Chrysler Stratus/Cirrus sedan, 2.5L ATX with A/S. That's my little brother's car, it was his birthday gift from my father and me.

I'm at work right now and I can't upload pictures, but I will, tonight
