    Thanks mate, I love the contrasting interior.

    Plans:
    - ASAP Lower it from that terrible standard height. LOL
    - Down the track exhaust, OTR intake, and tune, haven't decided on MAF or MAFless yet.
    - Possibly tint the windows.

    All I can say is, if you dump this thing you better do it properly because I've seen and felt some of the nastiest rides after lowering vehicles. Overall every nut and bolt jiggles and wiggles and after 2 years the car sounds like it's being held together with duck tape.

    Thanks PhatCommy, with 275 tyres on the back Ultra low isn't an option so superlow all round will do. Decided I'm not going to change the exhaust, just the rear mufflers. Also going to run the standard airbox with the direct pipe to the throttle body rather than the induction noise reducing ducting that's standard.

    Plates on

    Needs a wash. Bee sting antenna on, and my ridiculously wide 275 rear tyres lol
