Hey all I just bought a 2011 soul base with only 8k miles on it. It is a 1.6l 5speed so not really impressive power lol. Anyways I bought it basically for MPG since I will be doing around 80 miles a day for work. I am going to put better wheels on it and better speakers big time.

So if there is any advice with this little guy let me know!

Right now I am in the O.C.

Took the little soul out for a drive today and it did pretty good. I do like how it handles for being a box with wheels lol. I would have liked to get the 2.0 motor but this little 1.6 will do. I am planning on getting wheels,intake and exhaust and that's probably it since it is a daily driver but I do need the radio to sound way better then it is now lol
