Hey all,

I have been here quite sometime but never actually posted any pics of the car cos it wasn't anywhere close to what I want it to look like. It isn't finished yet, but i have done some work on it and I thought now is a good time to get some pics and post it.

Comments are appreciated.

I dig the rims...and the lowered suspension. It's almost Hella Flush! :P

Cheers mate! I would have loved "Hella Flush" but this is faaaaaar from it. It is quite flush, no rubbing. The suspension stops it handling like a boat now. There is a lot more to go, it is very frustrating when there are so little mods available for the car.

looks clean..a little spacer in the back will flush it nicely but even its ok now

so what are your plans then :)

Thanks for the kind comments!

Not a big fan of spacers. Blue lug nuts will be next. I want to get some sway and strut bars. Intake and exhaust if I can get good ones. I want to make headlights better. Make it stand out is what I am looking for in a classy way.

I guess I will talk to the people you got your headlights done from.

H&R springs. The ride is a bit stiffer but I dont mind it as it was too soft to begin with.

With all due respect, how much did the ride cost you?
I'm gonna get onto something with this ride :!:

It was a salvage (flood damage), so he bought a half-cut from Sharjah because the electronics were fried, mixed and matched the parts, got it waxed and detailed, and voila!
