Hey All... thought id add my au to the "garage"

so this is it when i brought it around July 07
completely stock company car with 185,000kms... not the greatest... but it has a full service history and a 5 speed, condition of the car was excellent...

Image

Image


First few things i did are
- Tinted the Tail Lights (only the red part)
- 2.5" redback catback exhaust
- Alpine MP3, Ipod Head Unit
- Alpine Type-R 5 1/2" Splits

Image


a few months later i brought some second hand BF XR 17" mags...

Image

also brought a jaycar response amp and got my old sub of a mate thats got newones... and started a boot install

Image

didn't do much for a while had no money because i had to get a new diff... so all i did was:
- spray the grill and black inserts of the front bar a light silver
- made some eyelids
- brought some new center caps
- removed mudflaps
- remover drivers side wind shield thing...

Image

Image

took it up 2 Heathcote raceway a few months ago and got a 15.96 @ 88.46... the car could do better as it was my first time dragging... great fun... i feel allot more comfortable knowing what my car can and cant do know... will be looking at extractors and CAI the a Capa tune soonish...

just sprayed the engine rocker cover... brighten up the engine bay... looking for a ef P/S overflow now...

lovin the tail lights! looks much better than those s**t aftermarket AU ones.

edit: infact, i reckon they wouldve been a hit if they were released on something like the AU3 XR8 220 or T3 T-Series.

So have removed the AU from carsales... realised how much a project car was going to cost and how little i could sell the AU for... :(

On a Positive i have 3K saved up to spend on the AU... this is my list...

Extractors and High Flow cat (not sure on specs yet and already have catback)
SS Induction - Big Mouth™ Cold Air Induction
K&N Panel Filter
Flash Tune - Flash Tuner Excalibrator I (from PT Motorsport)
Billet XF-AU T5 Quick Shifter
AU Series 2 XR Rear bar Lip
2 Precision Response 12” Subwoofer CS-2354 300WRMS (Jaycar)
Black Leatherette Seats Red Stitching and Tickford Logo Embossed (eBay)

Should be able to start Modding next Week.. (9th)

I'd reconsider this... seeing as its like a cm difference for $200, just get the XR6T snorkel.

Love the subtle exterior mods, really makes it look "sleek" IMHO
(I.E. "factory ford" wheels, factory tail lights/front grill slighty modded)
:D
