Well well the color choices are really dividing everybody down the middle line hehe... i dont think we need to add a poll as yet, because im pretty much decided on going red rather than my impulsive idea to go white. The more i look at it the more i wanna go red

To chalk up the next phase of upgrades, the car will be back in the workshop sometime early july. Im expecting all of the work to take up 6-8 weeks.

- Front bumper modification to add some features
- Complete exterior repainting
- Twin Turbo Conversion and upgrade parts
- Maintenance with new wheel bearings, prop shaft bearings and rubber beadings
- New Audio with Image Dynamics XS speakers, IDMax sub, and two Q Amps
- Some sprucing up of the interior, maybe leather on the current Sparcos

autopsyche-go for the red,i personally feel sports cars look good in red more than white,white is more of a limousinish color,no wonder there are not many sports cars in white,bcos,its not as striking as red or other bright colors on a sports car.

Which sidemount intercoolers are you going with? Stock units or aftermarket? If aftermarket, what size? I'm a bit worried about heat soaking in India heat.. If I remember correctly, there are some front mount intercoolers which have two inlets and one outlet with piping to the throttle body(come to think of it, I've probably installed one on a car I built many years ago). You may want to consider that option.

Any chances you'd like to mod the front bumper a bit a la Autopsyche? Would look awesome.
