New guy from PA
Howdy all. New guy here about to purchase my first crown vic. I'm looking at a getting my hands on a police interceptor and I'm sure I will have plenty of questions along the way. Looking forward to meeting you all and modding my new ride!

RE: New guy from PA
Thanks all for the warm welcome. I have my eyes on a 2008 interceptor with 115K. Asking price is $3995. I haven't seen the car in person yet but seems to be in good condition. Dealer has changed a lot of front end parts and has new brakes all around. From my research this seems like a decent price. I'll be going to look at it this Saturday. Anything in particular I need to look for when inspecting the car? I know of the headlight and wheel issues. Anything else I need to look for? Thanks fellas.

Look for hacked up wiring. Pull back trunk liner and look for cut wires. Look up under dash for cut wires tucked up and hidden. Check color of trans fluid.

There is no off position on my genius switch.

Welcome.
It's good to look for cut wires from the uninstall of police equipment, unfortunately sometimes the issues with the uninstall hide for a while then pop up with stuff acting funny.
