Ok,
Got a $300 gift voucher for supercheap today. But the sad thing is im not sure how to spend it.

I wouldn't mind my car lowered, But do supercheap do that sort of stuff? and if so does anyone know how much?

Got an ok sound system, could update that a bit more,

My smart lock is a little buggered, has trouble locking sometimes.

I just dunno.

Any ideas?

Yes you can get springs and specific parts at super cheap but they have to ordered in, but the price is still pretty good.

$300 would get a lot of tools of reasonable quality or a decent set of spanners and a socket set or a small compressor and some air tools,maybe a buffer and polish?Jack and creeper and a set of axle stands usually come in handy.Go window shop and make a list.Good luck Kevman. :mrgreen:

Thanks for the ideas,
Went down to supercheap today, Im thinking all round king springs, the guy said that it would depend on which springs to put on front and back because some times you need lower ones on the back. Has anyone had any experiance with this?

All up for x4 King springs =$326

That should get rid of $300 easily

i got a full set of ultra low king springs in my ef, and the front sits lower than than the back, so im thinking of getting superlows for the front to even the ride out, so say if you were to get super lows in the back get lows in the front that sort of thing

$300? I wouldn't buy anything,
tools = crap
oil = expensive
random junk!
I wouldn't trust my life inder their car stands/jacks.

I'd buy a gps at a nagging price if i had to buy from there.
ohh, and some carby cleaner.

I don't know about the oil being expensive...everytime I've been there, it's been cheaper then other places...however never went to Bursons so they might be cheaper.

Rather buy tools at TTI...good quality for a good price.

If I were you, I'd get items to do a major service to your car as millard said...you want your car to drive smoothly before modifying. Defeats the purpose of a lowered car if it could possibly break down in your driveway...all show no go.
