    Was around 440rwkw when tuned. So I would love for another dyno to show something similar. But who knows, there are so many variables with dynos

    Thanks mate! Absolutely love that Slipstream Blue, one of the nicest blues I've seen on any car, and was actually tossing up between that, white, or black. I'm planning on just driving the car as it is for a couple years atm, I may go in for CAI and Tune soon but I want to do a few cheap aesthetic changes before I spend money on anything else really.

    Thanks buddy. Yes I love the Slipstream Blue. Theyíve certainly done well with this colour. Iím also keeping mine stock for a while, enjoying it for what it is and represents, but certainly considering options for later on.
    What aesthetic changes have you got planned?

    First thing will be to repaint the calipers, undecided as to what colour exactly but will be in red regardless, and Iím also undecided in what colour HSV decal to go. I actually like the look of the factory calipers, but if Iím planning on modifying it I may as well change it anyway; so I may end up using AP Racing decals and *maybe* candy apple red paint instead.

    Then Iíll be painting all the badges to satin black, not a massive fan of Ďblingí on my cars as little as badges give, and again Iím undecided if Iíll get the painters to do it professionally at the same time as the calipers, or just Plasti-Dip them as Iíve had quite good finishes when using it.

    Apart from those things, Iíll be polishing up my paint to a pretty high standard minus sanding and then coating it, going to give my wheels a light polish and coat those along with the calipers as well.

    Small update on the car, rear tyres needed replacing. I kept putting it off until a cheap set or a sale came by, and I was pretty lucky as when the AfterYAY sale was going on I was just scrolling through the shops that use them and noticed Tyroola, which is an aussie tyre retailer and they were giving 20% off. I wasn't exactly sure what I wanted but had heard many good reviews on the Michelin Pilot Sport 4s, and I'd never tried Michelin before so I took the plunge and emptied my wallet and replaced both the front and rear sets of tyres. I just went with the standard sizes, I did look at getting 285/35 for the rear as EVLHSV? mentioned he did, but they were a bit more expensive over 275/35.

    I've put about 1xxx km's on them since fitting, and all I can say is WOW! This is the best tyre I've ever used, and in my view is worth every cent. Comparing to Nitto NT05 in the dry (straight line grip) these are leagues better, I get a small chirp and then they hook almost instantly, which is saying something because at this power level the NT05 is a great tyre in the dry. Comparing to everything else I've tried (factory contis, re050a, invo, FK452's etc.) they're way more planted in the wet, where I'd usually get a floaty-feeling driving through a decent puddle that's gone, and I can take off confidently at a T-Junction without worrying about skidding when I don't want to. I found very little road noise which is great considering how quiet these cars are when cruising. Lastly the sidewalls look great when cleaned and dressed, hopefully they last a good while

    After fitting:




    Sorry no real mods yet stay tuned for those
