What have we done to our 924? Well, so far the "modifications" are quite minor really. We have only added an MSD Blaster 2 ignition coil, and we've removed the air-conditioning system. Other than that, the car needed nothing other than the normal minor stuff that always pops up (gas, oil, filters, etc).

Why a 924?

Check out our tips and you'll see that 924s really are an excellent car for your hard-earned money.
