“What kind of car is that?”
Was there any unusual circumstances around how you acquired your car?
I acquired my car from my dad when I turned 16. We got the c30 less than a year after it was made and after we got it I fell in love with this car. Grew up and learned to drive in this car.
Was there more work on your car than you anticipated? Did you find a bucket of wiring worms, find some secret hidden problems…..
After buying 20 inch Rohana Rc22’s with 275 tires in the rear we ran into problems with suspension travel and getting tire rub in the rear. While trying to maintain a comfortable ride, the c30 was lifted an inch and a half in the rear.
Are there any unique mods on your car? Hyper-rare parts, custom made parts…
With the car being mostly stock, there isn’t much that is rare or unique. The c30 is polestar tuned and has the little cyan badge to match.
Would you consider your car done in its current form? Or do you have a list of “to dos” still left?
I still have a lot I want to do to it, this including lowering it/fixing fitment, new intake, exhaust and other performance parts.
What is the biggest problem you ran into on your build?
Not having enough money to purchase desired modifications.
If you had to do it again, would you build the same car?
I would 100% choose this car again, the unique body style and sporty feel is unparalleled in my opinion.
Are you apart of a club or crew with your car?
I have not joined any club with my car yet.
Is there any part/mod on your car you had to do a few times, or installed and then removed?
Thankfully I haven’t had to redo anything yet.
What is your favorite part on your car?
My favorite part on my car is the interior, everything from the two tone leather seats to the awesome waterfall dash.
What’s the best memory you had in your car?
My favorite memory is 100% when I damaged the leather seats while tying my shoes on the seat before a soccer game when I was younger. I still have not forgave myself for that to this day.
