    Gonna get her lowered soon, (free money from the government hells yeah).

    I probably wont do too much to the engine pretty much because of the $$ and to spend that all on a 6 its not really that worth it. But wouldnt mind doing some CAI mods.

    just de-badged the car a couple hours ago.

    heres the results (note i hadn't polished the car yet so you can still see where the v6 badge was, but after i polished its now gone)

    oh and i haven't washed the car in a few weeks lol :p

    edit: Picture from behind the car is in the main post now

    ive given in, and im getting an exhaust done. $260 gets me a redback 2.5" from the cat back :D sounds like a pretty fair price to me lol.

    Got quoted for my damage to the front bar and front quarter, and to colour code the skirts, and the guy wants $1000! $800 if i supply my own front bar already painted!

    So ive got alot of looking to do, need to get that price down! lol
