Another update on the 18's:
They got in Adelaide yesterday, but then they found that the offset was for AU on, needless to say i'm not particularly happy, so the guy has to order them again, so another week :x , but there is a positive that came out of this; i'm now getting the 40th anniversary Cobra Rims (ones with the white inserts ;), i know that'll make a few people happier :P).

And I know some of you are gonna say "Why are they the GT's? I thought you we're getting the Cobras?". Well to cut a long story short, they we're unable to get the Cobra in the E-series offset, so they sent the GT's instead, but I reckon it looks tougher with the GT's than it would've with the Cobras. So me very happy chappy :).

They are the same as cobras only with black paint instead of white or clear.

Well I was corrected before, the black ones came out on the 40th anniversary GT's and the white ones came out on the 40th anniversary Cobras.

Well I'm a little agitated at the moment. Today the car went in to get the aircon sorted and they found that the clutch plate has come off the compressor. So we went and got a clutch plate from U-pullit considering the price difference, new = $290; U-pullit = $5, so we went to drop it off to them (the guy who deos all my servicing) and he was distraught about something. He told us that he misjudged a gutter when he was moving the car into the service centre and scratched the passengers front rim. I had a look and seen it was not so pretty, but managed to keep my cool and sort a deal with him. My father picked up the car when they had fixed the aircon and we agreed that the service, which ended up costing about $200 - $210, would not be charged. We gave the mag centre a call and he said that he would be able to get a rim for about $180 mark, so we should be able to cover the cost. If not, all we have to do is give the guy who does the services a call and he said that he'd make up the difference if the rim costs anymore than the service, so all in all, the situation is now sorted.
OK, here's the pics of the damage (turn away if you find these types of pics disturbing lol)

I have the car booked in next Monday to have the cam which I bought (wade 1636) fitted. Should hopefully gain about 10 - 15kw, I was hoping to have it fitted this week before the ACF dyno day on Saturday, but it was wishful thinking on my part, but either way, I'm looking forward to it :wink: .
