had it about six months now........traded in my EL2 XR8 with body and sunroof.

Au has 50K's on it

She is my baby and get lots of TLC!!!
Thanks for your comments...

I had plates on my EL, dont think anyone else has had them!!
Au is an Auto, current mods are exhaust and future mods at the moment include lowering, brakes (standard are crap!!) and series 2 bits (like yours!!!!!)

Not sure if i am going to put driving lights into new nose, they were on the car when i got it...

I think the Au is great, i think it handles better and puts power down heaps better. I am disapointed in the specs though e.g no engine cover, no height adjustable seat belts and no door lock button.....all of which my EL Had
Just installed alarm which locks doors when you start engine.
Does yours have selt belt height adjustment??? do you know if i can upgrade mine???

here is another pic of driving lights

Yeah i know what you are saying and agree (not much weight though)
I just like the look of the series 2 cover

Just remembered another mod, replaced factory air intake scoop with T-Series
will do.....

Decided Bigger brake upgrade can wait, ordered DBA Sport Rotors
drilled and grooved along with Green stuff Roadsport kelvar pads yesterday........cant wait to feel the difference.

still wouldnt mind seeing closer pic of your setup
Looks great, must give you awesome stopping power!!

remember fun is not in a straight line.....:eek:
new stoppers should be on today!!:nuts:
Got new stoppers fitted today
finnaly went for
DBA Gold drilled and grooved rotors with Bendix New Performax pads

At the moment they are very scary :evil: but should be good once bedded in, which acording to Bendix should be 500k's

Must say, they look great though and hopefully less dust!! Neighbours think im crazy washing car everyday!!!!
yes i know very slack:cussing:

Should have more pics soon

including brakes, painted mirrors and engine cover.....

If i could find someone who knew i a thing about lowering an AU i might get it done:D
