Then there is the first adjustment.

Some more bits are now on their way from Japanparts so the process will continue gradually.

Bye for now.

Thanks. Very lucky as picked it up as a demos so colour choice was very limited. My challenge now is to find the right rims - would like something in shadow chrome but options there seem very limited (if any). Other than that two early thoughts at this stage are Hussla 647 Directional or Oz Italia 150 5H. The search continues.

Now done the wing mirrors and blacked the chrome window trim.

Next thing on the list is the tail lights.
The search for rims continues as I can't make up my mind on a selection.

Definitely keep us in the loop for wheel selection. I'm also considering options. The ENKEI RPF1 seems good bang for buck but will continue to research options.

Love the way the 245/45/18 tires fill out the guards, gives the illusion that the car is lower.
Did you have any issues with the overall larger diameter of the tires?

Hi,
Thanks.
No poblem at all as went from 225/50/18 to 245/45/18 which means I will be slightly under : 100km/h on the speedo = ~99.3km on the road. The rims had a different offset to the standard but still had plenty of clearance on the brakes and struts which created the scope fo rthe size whcih does fill the guard much better.

Great, 225/50/18 is a higher profile than the 45 profile that it comes in from the factory so it's really good to know there is no problems. Thanks.

Looking Great Skoobie.
What brand is the exhaust and hows the note?
Apologies for the delay in replying - Exhaust brand is Exforce (cat back). The note is subtle which is what I was after - I wasn't looking for the big WRX rumble but have a bit of that distinctive sound in the background (I am older now so needed to be a little stately, plus the wife is happy so that is always a positive).
