thanks mate.

unfortunately, the rims i've got have started peeling, so looking at getting some replacement ones.
problem is that i cant find any i like. :(
well, there is one i like, but its like $1800 from the states for flow forged rims. cant justify spending that kinda coin on street rims. especially with a wedding around the corner.


plus, she's chewing through the fuel like there is no tomorrow and smells super rich!
thinking the cat is gone/blocked as it feels a bit down on power too. :(

yeah, a lot of mixed reactions with the stickers.
i personally love them and think they kinda "break up" the look of the car.

Yeah I'm not keen on flashy shit either, but I quite like Ash's car.

And the comments you get from people is astonishing. At least it has the go to match the show.
I just don't know if people like me. I know when they don't like me 'cause they'll say things like, 'Yeah, that's him, officer.'

The comments and looks you get driving the car is insane. I've never seen anything like it.
I get complete random people giving me compliments and it is really unnerving.
Like, today, I was filling up fuel and a random guy just came up and started talking to me about my car. I felt like saying, dude, fuck off and leave me alone you idiot, I just want fuel and to get back to work.

I've got some residual bogan in me from my days of having an XR6 and growing about around V8 Falcons Ash. I look forward to the day I buy an XY GTHO.

Let me know if you are about one weekend and are taking photos again, I'll bring my Nazi sled along.

A friend drove a 800hp mustang gt500 (one of the new ones) today and reckons it was crap. For a poser car and the occasional skid, it would probably be perfect for you though Ash ;)
