Hey FAT-5IX where did you get your exhaust done. That looks so f*cken hot man!

Yes white always looks fresh and the dark tint really sets it off. How low is it btw? Is the ride really rough, because the BAs are really smooth and i dont wanna spoil the ride.

Cheers

DEFINATELY not gt striping. Just some tasteful pinstriping.
Don't wany a bodykit. Not for now anyway down the track i might go for the xr frontend but i reckon the standard 'mont front looks ok.
And FAT-51x
I want to put two pipes down either side that face down (dump pipes) just behind the bumper. Don't know why, but the effect of kicking up a puff of dust from the exhaust as i take off really looks the part imho. And makes for a nice, deep sound which is what i like.

I'll post some pics up when i have time and it's not dark..

Agreed. might just do that one day

lol @ grandpa stripes. You can call them that if you like but it really needs something to break up the colour cause all the moulds on it are colour coded.

for those that asked about the suspension...

it has kings Superlows in the front and reset superlows in the back with monroe shortened shocks. the rear is 105mm lower than standard. the ride is very smooth believe it ir not and as for speed humps....

When i owned the XR6T ute it was slammed aswell and speedhumps were more of a problem due to the bodykit.. The XT has no low lips around it so speed humps are no dramas at all..

ride quality is fine, but tyre profile on the 20's makes u feel every rock in the road ... still no complaints from me though...

Exhaust.. i got that done by a very talented exhaust maker who owns "Newcastle Muffler Services" Pete has great attention to detail at a VERY reasonable price
