    Yer they will look sweet! :D Do u know wat i else i rekon looks really cool, VY II Calais Tail lights, ther lyk darker round the edge, that would look awesome on the black Berlina. Only thing is tho, that will end up being a bit of a pricetag for all those mods :thumbsup:

    Hi, Your car looks gr8.
    I have 18's and was looking at getting superlows as well. Do you have any problem with scrubbing? Did you need to fold the rear wheel arch lips?
    Cheers,
    Mark.
     
  16. There is a few good Leatherwork shops in West End...you can buy what they call a "Split" for not much....just about any color..... and just pin it around the seats or something........ :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

    Superlows


    ummm :unsure: well it sort of scapes off wen i got me FAT boys :D in the car and fuel tank is almost full.Its not constant scraping its just wen u get a sort of a wavy road or a bump (Note:wen u have more than 3passengers on in my case)

    And yes u have to go to a samsh repair shop (recommended) to fold the rear wheel arches :thumbsup: . Its worth it even though if you dont have body kits on. I would go for ULTRALOWS, but in city like BRISBANE its not worth it. :b:

    :drink:

    With adelaide roads you need to put a 6" lift kit to avoid scraping the gaurds you cant even have standard susp. all this money in taxes and fines and we have the worst roads. im sure many of us on here should own a few roads cos of the amount of fines we've paid..
