    Very nice looking Proton. I wasn't sure I would want a Proton but the more pictures I see of them the more I like the color. I have an 99 Astral Silver that I am in process of getting it back to a good looking vehicle.

    This picture doesn't really do the tires justice. They have plenty of tread left on them, but I will probably be checking out some different, deeper tread tires for the winter. I am proud to say that I am the second owner of this VX. The original owner was pretty light on it and didn't do much to it. Unfortunately, that means maintenance as well. I replaced the front, rear, and t-case fluids right when I got it since they have never been replaced.

    If you don't mind, how much did you pay for the t-case and diff services? I'm doing those soon and don't know how much it'll cost me. Yeah, the pic seemed to show no tread, but its just a pic.

    It wasn't very expensive. Got it done at a Jiffy Lube for around $150. Or for half that cost you could just drain/refill yourself for just the cost of the SAE 80-90 oil, provided you know how to change your own engine oil and you have a drain bucket.

    I wasn't in a position to be able to do these services myself, otherwise I would have saved some money. Jiffy Lube also replaced my serpentine belt for ~$80. I got the works done to it before I drove the 5 1/2 hours home.

    Previous Owner put on those rims. There are absolutely no mfr markings on them at all. The little looking around I've done yielded some similar but none 'zakly like 'em. Sorry can't help.

    The only picture I have, from my cell phone camera when I picked her up at the auto shippers a few weeks ago. I vowed no new photos until I get the damn front cladding replaced, which should be here soon if the dang seller will get off his butt:

    This is my 2001 Proton with 60,394 miles that I bought new. It has no modifications and still has the original tires.
