If it were my car
Clear side indicators, lowering, colour coding of moulds, some BA XR8 rims, the car looks pretty sweet as is though :lol: .

That looks awesome. I've got an XR6 that colour. Dont have the bodykit though.

Is that a manual or an auto?

Cheers

I agree, doesnt need much if anything in the looks department, lower, indicators, colour code that red strip if u llike the cleaner look like me and maybe if you want change rims..
How about some AV/engine/suspension work - or has that been sorted already or maybe even got big plans for future.

I thought I was seeing things for a second there... your car looks all but dammit like one parked on the side of the road here every day, even the right colour.

I agree with colour coding of the side mouldings. Looks clean like that.

Thanks man, its a manual.

Yeah the colour coded body moulds are a must in my opinion also, as for the clear side indicators, i didnt even know they existed?! But now that i know they do..
Where can i get me some of them??

The suspension is stock height at the moment, ive been looking around but am kinda scared of goin too low.. I want it low, but not too low so that i get defected or sip up the underside over every bump! In other words, i want it a legal height.. Any help on type of springs/shocks that will provide this?

Yeah the engine work has already been sorted out. I was going down the path of a vortech supercharger kit, but change of plans.. Im purchasing a trickflow kit as soon as i find out how the frig im going to install it all?!

Also, audio system has just started.. Ive just got myself a Pioneer DEH-P1Y deck.. Awesome deck..

Will be finishing the system after the engine work is done.

Oh by the way.. Im keeping the rims! I love 'em! :P

Certainly wouldn't lose the Simmons, just lower it and get the clear indicators. The EL XR8 that was in Street Machine with the body stips colourcoded look much cleaner than the standard XR's so i would lean towards that.

Yeh it does i know.. But i want more heads turned! :P
Naaah, there's just something about it that im not 100% happy with, thats why i asked for some hints & tips & suggestions off you guys 'n gals. Like the clear side indicators, colour coding the body strip, lowering, etc..
It'll all add up :)

Now, the problem is though, trying to find a place that sells the clear side indicators? Anyone know of any places? Preferably in the sydney area?

Cheers.
