    Actually a really nice pick up mate. Sunroof and red leather. Bit jealous of the sunroof, not gonna lie!

    It's going to be sitting in your driveway begging you to take it for a spin. Gonna have to shackle yourself to the house man haha.

    edit:and take off those wind deflectors Nana ;)

    Keep them, great for when you want to crack the window down a bit when its raining, otherwise rain just rolls off the roof into the car.

    and ditch the plates.

    That is a seriously good find mate. I have no idea how you picked that up for ten but well done. I wouldn't get too carried away with modifying the car until you get to start driving it though mate. It's a great feeling to fully appreciate the difference you feel in the car after modifying it. Get it nice and clean. Ditch the wind deflectors and mud guards and enjoy (well, eventually...) :)

    That looks like a real bargain. $10k over here would get you a pig with huge kms on it.

    Yea they are going to come off, what do people think of putting the thick chrome window moulds from the calais on this? Might look a bit tacky huh?

    Any plate ideas?
    Thanks airstrike :)
