ohh
its now too late..
i did the second mod today :) i did the exhaust swap today..
honestly i think the car responded better down low and mid range with the stock exhaust...
you can feel a little a more around 3500 rpm and up..
but it sounds so much better with the extractors and exhaust system..

Good for you with the new car. I also find that the EB/ED is the go, although the ED is heavier, but it might have a stiffer chassis and is newer.

I like . . .

. . . the pulled-in corners for smaller exterior dimensions (not big like the EF/EL/BA/BF)
. . . the neat rear lights (not weird like the EF/EL)
. . . the lightish weight (not like EF/EL/BA/BF/FG)
. . . the good headroom and visibility (not like AU/BA/BF)
. . . ultra cheap (not like BA/BF/FG)
. . . front spoiler ground clearance (not like EF/EL)

Troyman, Have you still got the bonnet protector from the ED? If it's in good condition and you would like to sell it then I might buy it.
