Purchased this car about 2 months ago for around $17,000
Since then ive only got the windows tinted, headlight upgrade, lowered, installed an iPod booster cable, chrome mirror covers, wheels & Camber kit.
Have taken it to the Heathcote drags and my best time was a 15.40, now wanting to do some performance modifications, any suggestions welcome :)
