Your joking? After reading a few of your threads it appears you alot more than 2k to lose.

I wouldnt spend a single cent more on kits, wheels, stereos etc unless you got some sorta cover. Cant trust the bad drivers out there.

Yeh but premium on my car is $1200 a year with an excess of $1050 because of my age. I just have to trust my driving and be as careful as I can. Someone else crashes into me and I get all MAFIA on their a**...

Besides, the car only cost me $2k but it's insured for about $6k. So if it gets stolen I still get a fair bit back on it.

Mate, I have those tyres on my new rims,

Incredibly impressed, very very good grip around corners and good in the wet and dry.

Little noisy at 40-50km/hr and when turning corners at that speed.

But other then that, best tyres I've had in a while.

Your in my boat as well then. No one else will cover my car with the mods it has. A bodykit automatically makes the car un-insurable. Oh well... Just Cars will cover me up to $1000 for my wheels so that at least covers the cost of the rims themselves :lol:

Like I said above though. The price that insurance is for young drivers, your better off getting it covered for theft and having a grand sitting in your account for that "rainy day." Insurance companies are a mob of wankers anyway...

Anyone that thought they wouldn't look good need to rethink that... :wink:

I absolutely love them! Although looking at it now makes the boyracer in me think that I really need to dump it a bit more... Even though my head says that it's completely impractical...

And I'm grabbing a set of DBA cross dilled and slotted rotors shortly to replace my slightly warped standard ones which will improve the look behind the wheel not to mention stop my shuddering brakes... :roll:

What does everyone think?

Honestly, i think it looks photoshopped :\
With that big/buly kit on there, the rims will look small and skinny. (When lowered more of course)
BUT! If you like it, then i like it :) Its all upto you anyways..
congrats mate :)

hm... Fair enough... :cry:

Oh well! Like I say about all my mods... I dont really give a f**k what other people think if I like it :D:D ... Not saying I don't value your opinions guys :roll: I just don't get phased by them :D

I would love to get some nice big rotors and 4 pot calipers to go behind them but a setup like that is beyond my financial grasp right at this moment... :(

That the first thing I thought when I saw my phoon whhels fitted, but its to damm expensive for big brake kits. The new rotors will help but the will still look small, but you should paint the rotors and calipers when you fitt them up
