    Well... SUPER annoyed!

    Smacked into a curb, only good thing is IT WASN'T ME WHO DID IT! Hahahahaha! Adam wasn't paying attention and hit it pretty hard, he was sooooo devo'd.

    Got quoted at Tyre Power $800 for the tyre (Darn Pirelli's) and $425 for the rim!! So went with the place who originally put the rims on and its being replaced for just over $1100 (thats including repair to this rim) that way we'll have a spare in the shed.

    Here's the damage.....

    $1100 you serious,
    the rim would cost $100 repaired, and the tyre looks fine, id drive on it (even if you wanted a new one you got ripped big time at $800)

    Yep lol $140 for the rim repair, $425 for the new rim and $570 for the tyre in the end.... Take note we're running Pirelli's.

    We still have the rim on the car atm, it seems fine, hasn't lost pressure, but the BF wants **** perfect, so we'll get it repaired, use the repaired rim as a spare, and put a new one on the car.

    It cost $4400 for the 4 we have on already.

    Love the car Kikki, looks really good. With your new springs, i would just go with "lows", that way you won't scrape on everything. I have lows in my ute and it sits at a nice height i reckon. "Super lows" may be alright, but you have more chance of scraping on ****. Definitely don't get "ultra lows"

    Awesome Ride Kikki... Don't worry bout the warranty get the cam + 3.5 Stally...thats whats in mine and I still had 3yrs to go on the new car warranty, some people call me silly others call me risk taker.
    Love your rims, and the grumble sounds great... Go the chicks in the V8's!

    Thanks! We have been thinking about air bags... oh dear LOL! Probably just on the rear tho, its so hard, there are so many options. I was looking at it from behind the other day (nawww nice ass) and realised the exhaust does sit rather low so its something we're going to have to watch.

    Thanks Herluv! I had my boss ask me the other day "Do you get lots of young guys try to drag you off from lights?" me "Ummm no, normally its me trying to drag them off at the lights" I don't think he quite knew what to say to that lol. It's soo tempting to void the warranty and go for it, but knowing my luck, the gear box will go or the engine will blow up LOL so not too sure yet! But it's very very tempting!

    Another pic :D I'm so in love and cant wait to start spending way too much on it ARGH! It's going back to Young's on Monday coz the boot keeps going spastic, dont know whats up with it, but it wont open, then it will open when its not asked to lol weird stuff!

    Lovely car!! Totally taken by wagons. They're the best I rekon.
    I'd have a VE, but the morgatge takes all ma money atm, so I gotta stick with ma trusty VR.
    I know what ya mean bout deposits an loans, etc.
    Next job for my car is to drop it a fraction. Too high in tha wheel arches for me. Everyone else at home rekons it'll be too low. Whada u think?
