Whoops! I must've missed it! My bad!

Looks nice! How much did it set you back if you don't mind me asking? Did you get it from MACE? Did you fit it on yourself? Or did you get someone else to do it for you?

No problem. Got it direct from VCM via phone order. They had a special on their website (been there for a while now) for the OTR, infill and fascia panels for $675, plus 20 bucks for overnight delivery. Fitted it myself, took about two hours as I was taking my time (nearly 20 minutes was lost trying to get the bottom of the stock air box out!). Sounds great, more induction noise and a bit of a whistle when it idles. I went with the VCM over the others as I prefer the looks and its about on par with the others power wise. The instructions arent that great in regards to the pics as they are smallish and black and white, plus I think its a copy of a copy of a copy, but i downloaded a colour .pdf version so I knew what it was showing. Well worth the money in my opinion.

Cheers.

Thanks mate. The only problem is finding money to spend on the mods. Theres only so many times you can check for coins behind the lounge!

Not much of an update. Currently looking for some rims to swap mine for plus some cash on top. Been offered VE GTS replicas for 500 on top of my rims but they've been painted gun metal grey and I'm not 100% sure on the new look. I've got a post in the buy/swap/sell page, and if you've got any suggestions or rims you wouldn't mind swapping, please let me know.

Cheers,
Brett

Have swapped my wheels with a set of Status Knights, 20x8.5 & 20x10. Pretty happy with the look, just needs to be lowered a bit. I'll put up some pics soon

Small update... swapped the Status rims for a set of Zenetti's that look basically the same but they're 22x8.5 all round. Straight swap so it didnt cost me anything, I like those deals. Heres some pics, I'll try and get some more this weekend after a wash.







Next up is to get the guards rolled and drop some lowered springs and shocks, or coilovers if i can stretch the budget. Also thinking of getting the rims coated white.... I was originally thinking of black but you kinda loose the size if its all black.

Black faces with a white pin stripe through the centre of each spoke and then single whitewall on the tyres. Do it.
