Sweet! Rims look great and that's the first blue leather interior I've seen other than my own. :D

Nicley loaded,no moonroof,but depending on who you are that can be a plus or minus.
Kinda off topic but anyone know if the TC's came with the optional anti theft and heated seats or were they only for the 20th coug?

I found an '84 Turbo Coupe in the junkyard with the factory anti-theft. It was the only console I have ever seen with the factory light (between seat switches).
It was totally black in its off-state, but lit up with red letters that said ALARM when activated.
I pulled it from the car and put it in my '88 XR7.

its got a moonroof hard to see but look closely at the top of the car on first pic, you should see it

Learn something new everyday with these cars. Man, I want that part!

From the discussions on the NATO board, they don't seem to think the alarm was available on 1987-88 TC's. It was an option for all 1984-86 cars, possibly 1983 as well. And yes, the light goes on the console/consolette. If you remove your panel and look at the bottom, you'll see a cutout for a T-shaped hole...that's where the alarm light will go.

How much did you cut your stock springs down? And what did you do it with? I am curiouse as to how to do it. I am going to have to use the onse I have, plus I need to pay of a speeding ticket I got so I have no extra money right now.

try using a hacksaw or a grinder, what ever you do don't use a torch or any heat for cutting down your springs. i took half a turn off the front and just under half a turn on the rear.
