Hi everyone! I'm from Russia, not the first one to come here and possibly not the last but with expectations to be here often :-)
It's interesting how many original coupe owners you have at this point (I don't mean the 1995-1999 years of production but all the models from avenger to stratus and from sebring to... sebring). In the russian club (more like the post-USSR club) there's almost 100 cars (but still there are many coupes running around untamed :-) ) - that's the number from the last poll.
It would be nice to keep in touch and if someone's interested, I could post here photos (or links to photos) of our meetings or translate some info of changes our club memebers have done.
As for my brief and humble stratus owner history, i've owned it for a year and a half. I've bought it from some blond girl (no offence to blond people, but she was a reeeal genuine blond - the ATF was black as tar when servicemen been changing it). The major upgrade is changing the brakes to the ones from Mitsubishi Galant VR4. And some minor little things - lighting the bottom of doors with a led strip when the doors are opened, installing a clarion audio head unit and so on - I guess many of you have done those things. Just trying to keep my stratus in it's fine state though it's pretty hard here. Sometimes it's mad drivers, sometimes the unavailability of some parts and a seasonal rape of car which includes anti-ice chemical reagents, very bad roads and things like that. Planning to re-painting a car this year (maybe a little change of color towards more saturated red). That's about it. A brief "about it".
Anyway hello again. I also hope I could make my English better here.

Welcome!

You are correct, you are not the first Russian Strat owner on here. The last guy here had problems getting parts as well. Mainly he wanted fog lights.

Pictures are more than welcomed! And if you haven't already, join our facebook page.

Sorry for keeping my time to answer - a really busy week.
For a start I can show you three cars from the club but on another site.

http://www.drive2.ru/cars/dodge/stratus_co...oupe/warhammer/
One of the old club member who had a strat before me. Recently made a almost full engine overhaul (not sure the translation is right - he replaced many used parts so the engine is almost new now with almost 200 kmiles on the odometer before the repairs) so now the car is working almost like new. Many things made inside the car - led lights (the gauges, conditioner block, all the inside lighting), leather seats from Eclipse G3, 1-dyn (or kenwood) with the ejected sensor display (translation, errr...)

http://www.drive2.ru/cars/dodge/stratus_co...serhio-nikolas/
A guy who's car is possibly the most unique-looking in all the club. The dragon on both sides is his drawing (he made the small original then some professional (or semi-professional) studio made him a vinyl). The wolf head instead of the original dodge badge is also his creation. And he installed the HID lens kit. The first on the strat here (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

http://www.drive2.ru/cars/dodge/stratus_co...coupe/lesechka/
A... girl (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif) She is the only girl I've met personally who drives stratus at the moment and is in the club.

Any question on what you see - I'll be glad to answer.
By the way, Sebring coupe is still the same car, we have both of them, are there any here? Or do they have their own club, or no club at all? One more strange thing. For example, the headlights. Though Sebring is less popular here and less owners are in the club, there are HID headlights (with LED or neon ring as of BMW headlights) for them. Strange thing is why is there no such headlights for stratus? I'd like to have one set without any sexual intercourse with car parts and appliances (fan, oven and microwave - human imagination sometimes has no limits)

Welcome to the group (IMG:style_emoticons/default/wavey.gif)
It's interesting to see the girl's car in the snow and dirt, these cars were never known for being great for either.
I remember a past member exported his car from here in the U.S. to a European country (I forget what member, or where the car went) and he was telling us about how he had to have the lights converted to European standards, did you guys in Russia have to do the same thing with your Strats ?

Hi to all!
My second try (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)
I'm really really very sorry for creating this topic and afterwards leaving it but I've had my reasons.
I still own the car, club still exists. Here's a pretty photo from our meeting in March 2013
http://cs14115.vk.me/c418331/v418331423/2e08/BzTWWXYIBj4.jpg
First one is mine. As you can see, in March it's still pretty cold here )
As for Whiteout mentioned, about dirt and snow, we really have not much of a choice because there's snow for about 4-6 month a year and yet sometimes you just have to drive somewhere (with temperatures dropping down to -30-35C occasionally). If you have any alternative, otherwise you just change the tires (wheels) and go. Having that in mind, the cars are really good in snow, considering they don't have TC or ABS systems on board. If you don't forget it's not a Dodge Ram you're driving )
We have a page on vk.com - it's http://vk.com/sscclub
Though in russian, feel free to ask about anything you see.
I'm not on facebook yet but if I will be there, I'll follow your group instantly.
Best regards to you all.
I hope this time my attempt at being here will be much better. Though I'm not a big poster (in terms of the postcounting), I will try to write here as much as possible.

By the way, if you're proud of your car and willing to show it to the members of our group on that site, I'll be happy to translate some info about it and about yourself adding some pics of your 4 wheel beauty (or beast) there. How's that for "telling US about yourself"? ;-)

Aww I saw One of them with an SDS kit on it. Running an intercooler as well. I like the red with offset license plate. Is there a website translator by chance so we can read the posts? lol thanks for sharing most all the pics look nice! (Working Backwards on page 41...)

The only web translator I know of is google )
http://translate.google.com/translate?sl=a...132&act=url
By the way, as far as I know he doesn't have the intercooler - just the aftermarket hood. He is from Surgut, pretty far from Moscow. He actually made quite a story getting this car. First off, found it online in St. Petersburg (the russian one), got a plane ticket and flew there with a friend. Our St. Petersburg part of a community met them there and helped him in buying that car (I'm not actually sure if it was the same car he came for but he definitely wanted the red one). Then they drove off to Moscow for a couple of days (while giving a car to our former non-official, since we do not have the official, club mechanic who made all he could with a car for the time they stayed). Then back to Surgut in his newly bought car.
Here's his trip
https://maps.google.com/maps?saddr=Russia,+...amp;t=m&z=5
It's 2,228 miles. Impressive to say the least :-)
By the way, there's site in Russia, community of carheads - www.Drive2.ru (suppose google can translate that too). Massive database of people showing off their cars. Lots of girls too since someone was interested (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif) Anyway, there are some cars from our club, for example the dodge with a intercooler hood. Here's his page http://translate.google.com/translate?hl=e...lalekseevich%2F
On the popping window choose the right option. The left is register, middle is enter and right one is later. It's annoying hve to do it on every newly open page, dunno why they did it.
Here's another car owner
http://translate.google.com/translate?hl=e...%2Fwarhammer%2F
He's a good photographer (from my point of view) so there's nice pictures.
Our forum has many interesting people and cars, but the links to other site are for sorted car-owner-photos presentation. Actually the black one, owned by Alexey (Warhammer on forum) is one of the first in the club, one of the creators (maybe even last of them who still has coupe) and a man who's mostly responsible for keeping our site and community running.
