    Springs have pretty much settled, happy with the height. SSSL rear, SP4 front.

    Mirrors and spoiler going gloss back too when I get the time.

    Cheers mate, yea it's from 'spoilers galore' on eBay. Can't remember exactly but it was under $300 all up including painting.

    Drove a 2012 SV6 as a rental while I was back in NZ. Forgot how bad the standy brakes really were. All most rear ended someone at the first round about.

    The sidi seemed to have a bit more go than mine though, being 210kw I guess. Also the gear box felt a lot better, hard to put my finger on it, but it sort of shifted more like a manual would. Was nice to drive.

    Also the ride didn't seem that much better compared to how low mine is, obviously it's better but not as soft as I thought it would be.

    Back in mine and used to it again now though lol.

    Hey mate really like the look of the gloss black roof, how have you found it for durability? Does it resist staining well (e.g. bird ****, tree sap etc.)? What do u clean/polish it with? Have u noticed any drop in shaine since it's been on the car? Looking at getting the same thing done on my silver SSV, really suits the ignition paint on yours though.

    Cheers man, so far so good. Hasn't stained at all, hasn't been on that long though. Always cleans up well. I just clean it like normal with the rest of the car with Meguiars tech wash, and was told to use Meguiars quick wax on it and it comes up good.

    Thanks mate. Yea I think the same most of the time. I still enjoy driving it though. It gets a lot of looks, the average person just assumes it's an 8.

    Unfortunately the wedding and house come before a new one
