Not sure what bits about the navigation you mean Jack. I've used it effortlessly for years now.

Use the search option at the top etc and check the different sub forums.

Suspension wise you look quite low already. Are they Bilstein's?

There are cheaper spring options mate like the Eibach's I'm running but they'd be terrible on Bilstein shocks. People run that combo but it's a car/back breaker!

The AGX adjustables seem quite reputable both in the UK and the USA, especially combined with Eibach springs.

Your gonna be looking cirac 500 quid for coilovers bud. See the suspension forum on Nutz.

Also, roll bars and cages pop up reasonably on both Nutz and Ebay. Carbing, OMP and the like.

i'm prob just being thick and lazy haha, it did have bilsteins now it has GAZ's shocks not sure on the springs, I've seen a set of GAZ coilovers on ebay for about £420 the ones i have now are pretty good but i want to be able to bring the car down more level and be lower for a bit more stability and discomfort, its not a daily driver so these things matter less lol Smile again cheers for the help bud i'm looking through nuts but i'm Poo at forums!

The Gaz's are good mate. Not sure how low you can go on them thought although I'm sure it will be adequate lol.

The Tein's seem to have more room for mass slammage.

yeah i might just wait and stick a thread on there, teins are really very expensive tho! i'm not too fussed as long as they dont snap, make it low, and am used to tein hr's from my starlet, probably one of the harder coilovers you can get! see what happens

Apart from the lexarse lights and the halfords knob the rest sound fine!

There are racing beat and borla dual exits mate they are darn mean. Laguna lips work also but OEM is better.

...and as for the leather gaiter I got lewis's momo Razz

Sounds good. Someone on Nutz has a thread going. He is making and selling subtle ducktail spoilers! Have a hunt!

right i know its going against advice - and for that i apologise but i spoke to a few people who actually had them and decided to buy a set of these :


At the end of the day if they turn out to be Poo i haven't really spent much so i wont lose to much sleep Smile i've got the rears fitted and they feel fine, front are gradually being fitted but i dont have all the tools i really need so its a bit of an arse ache. having to modify them slightly as the metal guide through the bottom bush is about .5mm too wide for the lower arms bit of a pain but not the end of the world. nad now its raining so cant get out in the carpark and do it Evil or Very Mad
