Here's my 98 Eclipse RS 5spd I picked her up back in February of 2011 for $850 with 190k with a new timing belt and clutch. I got it as my first car since I've wanted a 2G DSM since my bother got his 96 ESI back in 06. The car now has 220,420 miles and the only thing that's went bad on it is the water pump other than that its been the most reliable car in my house.
Exterior changes:

Before changing the ricey center piece also how I bought the car
