      • Good stuff.
        So when can we expect you to lower the car to the point that it's undriveable? I won't be happy until you do.

        • They were $1300, i actually just stole them off my brother, but i'll be giving him the cash this friday.
          And i'll probably lower it to the floor whenever i can be bothered. It's at a good height right now, but with the adjustability of coilovers, i want to get a nice flush fitment/height.

          Also, mad christmas present:


          Thinking of whether i should paint it with my car paint and make it as a little replica of mine or just leave the awesome two tone colour.

                  Coils lowered a bit more:

                  **** ye. Back could use another cm drop or so but that will come in due time.

                    • Not bad at all man. May I ask how much they were? I still need coils in the 180 and HSD's seem to be getting more and more common.

                      Also unrelated, but your brother is a ****ing tank.

                          They're $1300 from option1garage which is where my brother bought them and I just bought them off him.

                          I don't know much about coilovers to be honest but the HRs are amazing. I drive over potholes and rough roads and feel every stone but my car stays grounded and the steering wheel stays straight. I've been driving around with the damper set to max though so you could probably make it a comfortable daily ride too

                          • As anyone who talks to me knows, all i do is ***** and moan about my paint not being shiny enough. I had 2 bottles of V and decided to sand the absolute **** out of my bonnet today.
                            The initial "Oh man, now i have to do the rest" stage:

                            The "Well.. Now i REALLY have to do it":

                            And the end result




                            It even hides some of the burn marks from when i used the buffer wrong.

                              • Love the colour the more I look at it... Wish I had the patience you have to do a respray... Summer makes me hate black and theres fades and scratches all over the place.

                                How much would you estimate you spent on painting material?
