    Love that colour.

    I have to agree with nathg... dump it atleast, dunno if their 16"s? or might just look that way cous of the ride hight. Maybe some bigger rims though;)
    The spoiler doesnt suit it either but thats my opinion lol

    nice ride though mate, well done! and welcome to JC:)

    Thanks guys : )

    Yeah it rides like a truck atm lol. Lowering her will be the first thing I'll be doing.

    I don't love the spoiler either, but i really don't like the look of them without the spoiler, seams likes something's missing (obviosuly lol).

    The catback is a little weak to be honest, it's really boomy down low with a bit of drone, but I'll see how it sounds with cats and pacies, hopefully it'll be a lil more grunty.

    We ordered a spare airbox today, so will be trying the 2hole mod over the weekend.

    I love that colour. Not a big fan of the chrome. Has been said but the rims could be a little bigger. Let us know how the 2-hole mod goes:thumbsup:

    Nearly finished the 2 Hole mod, just want to paint it so it looks more genuine lol.

    I've got a bit of a problem though, i have bought the genuine VZ Strut Brace, but the bitch will not fit on. I jacked the front of the car, and still wouldn't fit.

    Has anyone else had this problem?

    Mine didn't sit first and then I gave it a jiggle and it slotted straight on. Didn't need jacking at all. Have't heard of this problem as yet, it should slot straight on.

    your supposed to have the wheels off the ground when you fit them so the strut towers relax.

    make sure you check the bolts are still tight after a couple of drives.

    When the car's on the ground the hole's on the brace are probably a good inch off... and when its jacked up it was a bit closer, but still bout 10mm off.

    Im trying it on a mates VZ this afternoon, so we will see how she fits on his.

    Nice ride dude, very nice...

    How do you find the Pedders coilovers ?? I am tossing up between them and Teins but would like some feedback on how they handle potholes and bumps more than anything else.

    Did ya get your strut brace on eventually ??

    Cheers,
    Trev...
