nice.
personaly i love the tungsten gold colour.

i have a vs statesman and its white, but id much rather another colour
ya, these cars in gold = the best

the gold over the light grey thats on it at the moment would look the best

but the colour that it is at the moment isnt bad, has a pearly blue tinge to it, its just getting the drivers door resprayed is the prob, to do it they have to do the front 1/4 panel, drivers door and rear drivers door and costs a bit to do >.>

yer they have to do the guard and rear door becasue if they dont the colour will look funny. its called a blend.

yeah that one looks sweet, dont think id go that low tho, thats why im gonna go with king spring lows, they only go down 3cm, which is plenty for me

plus how hard would it be to convert my car to a 355 stroker v8 from a v6?? ive been thinkin of getting it done once im off my p's
