It'll be worth the wait! Looking forward to seeing it finished. Although as we all know, the modding never ends!

Ongoing costs have run up to around 3500... However, that includes the 17s and 19s, leather interior, bodykit, t5 conversion, 2 backyard paint jobs, twinlights and everything else in the build... Oh, and the car :P

Always good to see a mont stay on the road, but it's hard to Beattie comfort and reliability of a new car...

It's a good club to be apart of... Unfortunately it's getting to be a pretty decent sized one... When I first bought my kit I had only seem a couple of them.. Now there are many... It was always gonna happen... I just wish I got my up and running before they became so popular...

I personally haven't seen any over here in Adelaide- but I don't get out on many cruises anymore. If I get a kit, I won't be leaving it standard haha, I like to tinker and bastardise haha

I agree. I think if there is a bodykit on, a car needs at minimum some engine mods... I plan to turbo/supercharge mine once the kit is on... Only thing holding me back is funds... I don't want ridiculous power, just a bit more when I put my foot down... Am thinking supercharger as it will keep a bit more drivability... But then If I want more later it's gonna cost ALOT to get some note out of it... Something to ponder whilst in bed

Yep I'm definitely in the same boat as you mate :) then if you get into the realm of if I spend another $10-15k modding the el, I could go buy a xr6 turbo, but that's a fkn huuuuuuuuuggggggeeee club to be joining...

On another note, I have secured a ticky head, came and rocker cover, so should be picking them up next wkd hopefully... Mmmmmm more power is always a good thing.

Should I upgrade the cam or just use the tickford one? Am undecided at this point...
