cheers for the kind words. the stereo isn't finished yet as iv'e got my hands on another 2 type R's and another M500. this car is my pride and joy and i hope to have her for a while. this was my first car audio install.

deep dish chrome! i have gotten a mixed response on the rims. Do you guys like the rims?

bloody insurence company won't let me go lower than 15mm lower than stock. so the car will be going on to 3rd party in a month or so, so i can put her on her ass and start the engine mods. so much $$$$$$$. LOL

have a great one every one. JB

Seeing you asked, No, I don't like the rims.

As for dropping it and going to 3rd party insurance - I think you will find that the car still has to meet insurance guidelines for them to offer you any cover, not just comprehensive. You would be better off ringing around to find a company that will let you do mods. Just Cars may be your only option.

Get XR Springs if you're worried about insurance, AAMI allowed me to have XR springs in my EF after they said it couldn't be lowered at all, since tickford suspension was an option it was all good :)

i know what you're saying about the insurance....and it is risky....

thats why i decided to go back and get the 16's...after alot of help from JC....

they may never get to see your car....but if they ever do....you can pretty much guarantee that they will say somethin like "oh, you have the car lowered...this vehicle is not insured with us"

there goes ur cash :p

just be carfeul what ever u choose to do

i had thought of going with xr springs, but it would be a waste of money, because i know xr height just won't do it for me and i'd end up having to upgrade anyway. Bloody $$.

cheers john beart

i had to drive to geelong from warrnambool with no insurance in my AU coz Just Car wanted to see it before they insured it (voided from other company cos it was "too low"). they even asked if i had fitted a smaller steering wheel cos i had the top of the wheel level with the dash. but on the other hand they said i can do ANYTHING i want to the car as long as i tell them and its legal...needless to say for they price they were asking i made a huff at the old insurance company and they gave me back my policy and put me up a rating for stuffing me around.
