    i dont think so. i was thinking about it, but i think i'll give it a miss this time. petrol is one factor, and homework is another. if only i knew about the knox one though. bugger.

    if insurance companies weren't so tight, i would.

    i think i can only have one mod, and i think my wheels would be classified as one. so no more :(

    got a new exhaust. 2.5" Redback Catback exhaust with no rear resinator. sounds awesome when you floor it, and doesnt drone when your cruising. i love it.

    yeah. i tried peeling it off my old bumper, but it just ripped. so i'll probably go to autobarn and see if they have any black tape stuff.

    yeh, its the rubbery thick stuff or just a sticker?

    i know autobarn can get rubber bumpstrip stuff, we have to order it in, as theres not much call for it, and we have pinstriping tape aswell
