    The wheels are growing on me, definitely still want new ones but if I spray them black they will be alright for the time being.

    Giuliano Automotive tuned it.

    Haha I remember asking this same question when I first got mine.
    The answer - comfort Pro on the centre mount and Performance in the side ones.
    Best compromise on comfort. Particularly if you plan on lowing it.

    Thanks mate! Is that what you have in yours?

    I got a quote for $900 to get them done with any bush.. Does that seem reasonable?

    Yep, until a Trutrak goes in. And $900 I think is what I payed, with them suppling the bushes. The rear cradle is a heavy mother.

    So just playing around with my mates G-Tech metre tonight.

    Trying out a some 0-100 times. Still trying to figure out how to launch it best and not lose to much traction in 1st/2nd.
    Best I got was 5.1 seconds on cold tyres/crappy road in auto.

    What do you guys launch in when you take off? Performance mode or auto? Best time?

    I launch in performance mode, just to destroy the rear tires...
    the best time? - I have no idea, I just enjoy destroying the things I haven't broken yet....



    ....well, the bank does....

    Not much to update at the moment, its all in my name and I got black plates. Going to change the oil this weekend.

    Next mods are probably lower rear springs and 5000k head/fog lights. Just the little things.

    The front is lowered, I like how it sits. SSSL sound really low but aren't really as far as I've seen. Especially with 19's

    Mines on Ultras in the rear and super super low in the front. Its level and lowish. The FG's really don't look slammed until the chassis is touching the bitumen.
    However, put a stock height one next to a lowered one and the difference is clear as day.

    Or until you try and park it in a carpark with those little concrete blocks, their about the same height as my fog lights.

    Also, you should cut the front grill so the intercooler is more visible and add the black lower bumper protector to make it look tougher.

    EDIT: Also, once the sunroof was installed, the car dropped nearly another inch front and rear, with all the reinforcement that was added to the roof, I only point this out - since you also have a sunroof.
