mines a futura aswell, yet my side mirrors r black :S very strange


yeah mate some f**k ripped dads mirrors off and they had to be replaced. they are only 2 months old so if u wanted to paint them it would b good to do them soon


actually yeah, thats what i thought of at work today. maybe they had been smashed and they only replcaed them with GLI ones. im sure the Series II wouldnt skimp down to black ones. Cars are supposed to get better with an update not go backwards, hahaha.

Hows the ride with the superlows on standard shocks?? Mines a bit rough and ive only got the lows with standard shocks?


na mate im telling you thats what happened cause it was my dads car lol


ha, yeah, thatll teach me for not reading the initial post correctly!

dirty bastards. some bastards keep floggin all my valve caps...not nearly expensive as power mirrors but still damn annoying

spuDEF - yeh it actually rides very smooth on the standard shocks, im still going to get shocks replaced but the guy said the standard shocks were in good nick so no need to worry soon

Mitch__EA - it cost me $450 for the lower and allignment which I think is a pretty standard price, but they sell them at super cheap for $130 a pair if u wanna attempt it yourself, $260 is alot cheaper but personally I didnt have the time do it myself

phong when i had my superlows i found them pretty stiff and unforgiving, especially when those bigger pot holes jump out at you (1 even cracked a spoke in one of my rims!)

since then ive gone up to pedders springs and shocks, equivalent of king springs lows height. i found it to be a pretty good compromise. its pretty comfy, but still handles ok. still get wheels rubbing on guards tho...might have to get them rolled :(
