Hey guys finally got rid of the Falcon and now i get to focus solely on my New 1996 3L TE Magna....5 Speed

Picked it up for a steal of $2800, with Leather Interior, Suade in the door trims...Oh and the Awesome 5 Speed. Although it has done 314xxxk's i have had no major issues with it, back left of car is squealing but thats getting looked at next week. Also it occasionally decides to drop some oil on my drive way but it will only be something minor like the sump gasket, regardless that will be getting fixed next week aswell.

Mods so far have been all audio my Alpine 9887 Headunit, Focal 165V2 Splits, Rears Disconnected, JBL 4 Channel, Option Audio X1502 Monoblock capable of 1.5kwrms, and 2 cheap Pioneers subs. I havent quite finished my install but its good enough for the moment.

If i decide to go through with some performance mods i will probally start with a set of extractors and a sports exhaust, NO Cannon or Ricer mods on this car. Then depending how i feel with the car maybe a Mild Cam. Oh but first of all some mags and some lowering.

nice, bet u its a whole lot nicer to drive than the eb
wont get as many looks though

a mate had a magna same shape a while ago, was a limited edition factory sports, 300 made? flares and lowered with a few other bits. went well

those v6 can be hotted up nicely too. another mate was in the development part at the engine plant in mitsy's they ported some magna v6 heads and they were flowing just under what some chevy performance heads were getting per cylinder.

Thanks for the comments guys.

It is extremely nicer to drive than the EB and your right i dont get as many looks.......yet. I was thinking 20 inch mags but i think i might just stick with some nice 18's, buying tyres for 20's probally wouldnt be any fun.

they'll "fit". but the offset will be completely wrong. they'll stick out too far and be illegal
