Thanks!

Spike (I named him... so?).. had his one year birthday on the 5th.

He's been chipped up to 290, and a small fiddle with the tone-age of exhaust (too quiet in idle and 1st/2nd), and that's all I've found I needed to do to make him stand out.

Of course I'd like to tweak him totally, but with our 50km limits all around town, I doubt it's worth the money to never get out of 2nd gear!
Although when I *do* get a chance on the hightways, it's just awesome driving.

I'm costing interior changes. Not keen on the lightning kinda thing they have going on. Barbed wire if I can find it.

Damn straight. I dust it every second day, and it HAS to get washed once a week.

Wouldn't have any other colour though!

I would've got the 18's and that would have taken up the room instead of thinking about lowering it. But... 17's were the most useful option for me.

I'd LOVE to lower it, but I already have a sh*tload of streets, cruiseways that I can't get through, I don't want to take off more of my cruiseway options. I already get stuck just going the wrong side of KMart!!

LOL,

Yes, every time there is a new car shown on this forum there are shouts of "lower it".

Though it may give the car a nicer stance, it's certainly not practicable when the car is an every day driver.

I have trouble getting out of my driveway as it is without going any lower.
