Re: A VERY big thank you

Congrats. I know the feeling well, though I just went and ordered one as soon as I could, no need for a test drive even. I've wanted one since they before they were released. And pics are a must!

Re: A VERY big thank you

Well, I lowered mine, King springs and am very happy with it. I took the rear muffler out and it does sound better. Much more like a V8 Supercar now. I'll let it bed in for a bit longer and see what I think. I didn't mind the stock sound too much, but it was a tad quiet.

I also got new dba slotted rotors all round along with Ferodo Formula pads.
