we are all young once and love the "bling" ... well actually my mercedes C180 i only sold a couple of months ago was on 20" chrome wheels... it took me a while to get away from it but i have finally moved on haha
any specs on the rex? mine was minimal, ECUTEK1.5, Hyperflow FMIC, full 3" mandrel bent exhaust, twin dump pipe, was good for about 160kw at all four wheels and was great fun to drive.

Nah I didn't do much mechanically to the bug eye, I had a 2.5 motor built and 60-1 turbo, etc, etc built for it but pulled the pin before fitting it. Had more fun in the 00 I replaced it with though! Miss those cars for sure. Had a 200SX and Skyline both with over 400 rwhp which were interesting, the 318i I've got now is a bit of a change!

They just arrived



Getting them installed tomorrow! Only problem is they sent cross drilled rotors and I wanted slotted!.. But i cant be bothered sending them back.

I learnt a few lessons when ordering stuff from O/S! I should create a post providing some tips for others looking at importing gear from US to AUS.
