Re: $13,110 worth of mods !

Is the price in as a bragging point? For that money, I was expecting to see a supercharger!

Re: $13,110 worth of mods !

i agree with JC. spending 13k on wheels and brakes isnt something i'd be proud of

each to their own

Re: $13,110 worth of mods !

Mate that's a lot of dough for some wheel's and brake's, are you planning to do some track work, even still it's very expensive,each to their own.

Re: $13,110 worth of mods !

backtothefutura, had the brembo's for my BA XR6, but traded up to a GT so no need for them on the GT to start with !

Perana 351, It's not insulation tape...it's duct tape, to hold the thing together !

JC, Bragging point....yes and no, just the fact that i've had it done and i think it looks good !

Tibbo, $13000, spare change :)

Hotdbz, it's the showroom, you show what u got !

ChuBBz, thank you, the GT may be supercharged when i have a few more K's under it's belt.

Galaxy xr8, as soon as i get my CAMS licence.

One thing i have noticed that most of you guys drive AU's, not BA's ! explains why you guys are so eager to shoot some one down ! and i'm quite shocked some one hasn't had a go at me for putting DJR mags on a GT ! ! !

Re: $13,110 worth of mods !

Shane it looks good mate.

Im sure if the others have that sorta money just laying around they would do the same.

Personally I know i wouldnt spend 13g on wheels and brakes, but then again i only own an EL and it would probably take me 6 months to save up that sorta money.

Well done.
