Really not sure at the moment, I've gotta save the cash for insurance I guess, it's 1900 pa under my mums name and me listed as a driver, otherwise it would of been 3100 pa.

I'll look around and see what kind of cheap mods I can do.

Yeah it's only an auto but I'm still happy with it. Tinted windows is probably the first thing I'll get done to it. ANd will let you know Timmeh although that won't be for a while.

very nice.. i just picked up a el xr8.. but have yet to take delivery.. insurance for me with a s**t driving history(1 dangerous driving charge) and im payin 1700.. thats with a good noclaim as a 23yr old tho. justcar insurance.

a good go-fast mod to do would be intake manifold and roller rockers..(taking off intake makes rockers accessible so makes sense to do both at same time).. should be worth another 15kw, plus a bit of economy gains aswell. it'l cost between 1k(if you get good deal on rockers n find an AU intake somewhere) and $1700(if you pay sticker price on rockers and an edelbrock manifold).. food for thought :)

but yeh.. tint it and it'l look awesome!
