    Altezza's basically make it hard to give your car away just to let you know. They are the worst excuse of aftermarket taillights i think the world has ever seen.

    i take it there isnt many fans of altezzas out there, seems strange considering how many pic ive seen on the forum with altezzas. anyway ive always been a fan of them, not so much the VS ones but the monaro style chrome ones for VXs, ive loved since year 7. anyways, im more into the frosts

    just a question for anyone who is looking. Will VXII FE2 front springs fit the VS and at what height? The VX was a heavier car so... would that make the front of my car sit higher that VS fe2s would?

    Considering there have been no posts on this thread for exactly a year and a day now, i thought id update it with some history.
    Well since getting the car, ive loved it to death. and as such i managed to put it up the back of a 2010 Nissan Maxima. F*cking $80,000 car. And, stupidly, neglected to get insurance before hand. so $8,900 later i discover why i should always have insurance. (although that quote was utter crap.) Anyway, as a result of the accident and uni, the mods have been slow flowing lately. however i have managed to save for a few things. A complete blue dash and console light conversion and a momo leather steering wheel so far. the interiors starting to take shape. Some leather and we'll be right. The exterior is basicaly the same as when i put it on the road, but im saving up at the moment for some Ultra low's atm so i can dump the arse end down to where it should be. :p so thats it atm. im talking to my mate Rhys the legend about going to cruize for charity so im looking to get the car dumped by then, so it should be good.

    Hey buddy, nice car, looks very clean.

    the white door handles look kind of outa place, i dunno?

    hows the exhaust note without rear muffler, i wouldnt mind doing that, if you could even maybe get a vid?

    cheers. brad

    Thanks man. nah i love the door handles. coz the guy that i bought it off re painted the car, he also did the door handles, and IMO, it makes the car look cleaner. about the exhaust. its good, alot better than stock and it costs 50 bucks. its different to a cat back tho. its a 'smoother' sound, not as raspy as the redbacks. personaly i want a catback, but its good enough for now. it makes the bass deeper and the low end louder. i have no idea what it sounds like up high because theres a whistle like a jumbo jet that masks the sound. if you do it to a VS onwards, get rid of the flexi pipe after the rear muffler aswell, otherwise youll be the but of all your mates jokes for a while lol. but yer, its not to droney and nise and cheap.

    So, Just thought id put up an update. in the latter months of 2013, i lost my license (silly me haha). As a result i had my best mate drive me around every now and again. this was good until one day he managed to take the car through a fence into a paddock, through the same fence further down and back out of the paddock, get airborne across the road and end up in a second paddock on the other side of the road. Needless to say, the cars unfortunately a write off. So this is the end for poor Sarah, currently she's going to be stripped for what ever parts i might need for my new car (another white vs) and maybe somewhere down the track turned into a track car.
