    In May, 2010, I got my first car (On my sister's birthday ). At first, I didn't really like this car, particularly the back end of, but it's still good for a first car eh?
    It had 78,000KM on the Odometer when we picked it up, and apart from the starting issues recently (a bit of sandpaper on the connections fixed that), hasn't missed a beat.

    The first modification I did to the car was the subwoofer. I picked up a Fusion bass tube from supercheap for $250 and put it in with the help of my dad (Qualified sparky) over the following weekend, to be honest, i'm supprised with how well it performs, can be a bit distorted at times, but all I wanted was a bit more bass.

    Then I got into MCM, and the slight modding continued.

    Then the MCM sticker, along with white wipers and hubcaps. (I can't afford alloys)

        Update, pics of the car after a wash.
        The white wiper and hubcaps are no longer, they looked quite silly and turned a sort of off cream anyway.

            The paint looks really good! As you probably know I've got a 323 which is much the same, just some little mods you could do;
            Remove the mud guards
            Remove rubber door strips
            buy cheap 2inch chrome exhaust tip

              Yeah, I took the mud flaps off before cause I thought one was broken, I'm not sure about those plastic trims on the doors though. Aren't they there to protect from things like people opening doors on your car?

                  I would lower it on something like king springs and put maybe a nice set of 15s on there, but that's not on the top of my to do list

                          Yeah man, then use petrol and a credit card (or something like it) to scrape the glue.
