    Hi - I bought by Levorg in January & love the car. The only modification i have done is a Stage 1 tune & that was well worth doing. It now runs on 98 octane fuel as well, and is noticeable quicker.

    I would like to update the grill - the mesh grill looks pretty cool - I guess anything that makes the Levorg look a little more like a WRX at the front would be good! The other thing I would like to do is add some sound proofing, the tyre noise is quite intrusive on some highway surfaces. That plus better speakers would be well worth doing.

    cheers, iad

    Ok, Pic you don't mind I have a couple of Q's
    where did you have the tuning done?
    Any parts involved?
    Are you looking at exhaust or mufflers?
    There interest from 5p1k3y in Sydney for a speaker upgrade, he's looked into a good set of 6 from the USA for $400. Could do a group buy potentially!

    Tuned by the Horsepower Factory in Dandenong. Dyno tune only, no parts - but peak power increase was 15kw at the wheels & up to 20kw mid range. It feels like what the car should have been out of the factory. In Japan, their Levorgs come rated at 221kw, ours are detuned back to 197kw.
    I might get a full exhaust + tune in a few months. MRT Performance in Sydney seem to have a good upgrade that I may go for.

    looks like I'm off to Dandenong! Thanks for the tip. I've seen the MRT packages and vids too. I'm looking into AVO turbo world in Dandenong for a tweak of the pipes at some stage as the trip to Sydney is a bit too lavish.
