Arizona Sighting

Seems like there aren't many 92x left in AZ.

It's been months since I saw anyone, but last night I saw a nice red Aero outside Cafe Rio/Smashburger/Blaze in north Phoenix. Riding on stock 16s and a bummer of a scratch the back left fender.

Anyone on here?

Re: Arizona Sighting

I don't think so, but I'm pretty sure I have seen that one around north Phoenix - likely aren't many of those.

I've seen a desert silver while driving and another black one parked at Desert Ridge a couple years ago.  If I remember correctly the passenger side front door was in rough shape.

Re: Arizona Sighting

Nice, well I have an 05 arctic silver Aero that's been slightly lowered so you'll probably see me around as well the. What are you driving? Also, where did you get your tuning done, or did you do it yourself? So far I've done all my own work, but if I decide to start changing pipes out I may want to have a shop at least look over my work.

Re: Arizona Sighting

I have a black 05 Aero.  The suspension is stock, so nothing interesting there.

I had it tuned at Good Speed on Raintree in Scottsdale.  They also did the transmission disassembly/reassembly when that was upgraded by Level 10.  It's an AT, so only so much fun can be had in that area.

I've been satisfied with the work they did, but I think the Saabaru wasn't high-end or interesting enough for them.  I wanted to have a couple of other things done but Joe, one of the owners, stopped returning calls and email.  Who does that to a customer?

Dyno-Comp is down the street from them and UMS Tuning in Mesa, so I'll probably talk to both of them before doing anything else.

Let me know where you go when you decide to have anything done.

Nice. I probably won't do anything until the fall, but that's good to know, thanks.

Funny you should ask! I'm debating that right now. I'm trying to decide between giving my Aero some love with proper upgrades (Stage 1 or 2), or going Golf R. I need to post it to My Ride in the next few days. But here's a quick look

Re: Arizona Sighting

The image isn’t showing up in your post.  sadbanana

I guess it depends on what you want do with either one.  I’ve been really happy with the work DynoComp has done for me - on a couple projects.  If you are in the area, stop by and talk to them (Carlo), if nothing else they are happy to discuss options available and potential costs etc.  Also not shy about telling you if you should start over with another idea haha.

Good luck on whatever you choose.  Post an update when you are ready.

Re: Arizona Sighting

Same here 2x (48w & 32j) in north Phoenix/Scottsdale, but haven’t seen others lately.

@carlf Any updates on yours?
