hey all, haven't been on here for a while now.
since my turbo ef has been off the road I kind of lost interest in playing around with my cars...
until I bought this a few weeks ago.

Its a 5 speed manual, Leather interior, Premium sound, Sunroof and series 2 18"s

Wind deflectors on the front doors have been removed

don't plan on doing too much to this, current plans are:
Center console lid getting re-trimmed today (Black Leather with red stitching)
Focal 165vr Splits in front doors (Next Friday)
Full Exhaust system with quad tips
Cold air intake with power pipe
20% Underdrive pulleys
LED Taillights

Yes they look very tidy. Have you thought of changing the rear wing to something smaller or do you like the original ones? I quite like the Force 6/8 thin lip spoilers... Just a thought

yeah I like the look of the force spoiler, but I don't think it covers the stock holes, there are bobtail spoilers on ebay that look a bit bigger than the force spoilers (from memory they are the DJR spoilers) that don't look too bad and use all the stock holes from the XR spoiler.

Yea my mate has the DJR spoiler on his XR8, looks good. If you were to get the force spoiler it would be easier to get a second hand XT boot and respray it i would have thought. But that cost would be covered by you selling yours with the spoiler on it, one mans trash is another's treasure.

sounds like a good idea actually, I might look into whether its worth getting another boot and doing that or if ill just go for the DJR spoiler

Love ya car there matey, nice colour and has been looked after.
I don't think the spoiler looks bad but that is an OLD f@rt's opinion :)

Genuine Sun Roof and 5sp manual :D

You might think I am crazy but, I believe a set of white stripes along the side would look darn good :D

Got the center console lid back from the re-trimmers today, looks great.
now I think I might have to do the stitching on the seats to match.

soooo, I went to a re-trimmer yesterday to ask about doing the stitching on the seats to match the console... :( $2500 as they can't just replace the stitching so they would need a whole new leather kit :(
