Alright, I have been appeased. For a moment, i thought you meant my car is ugly and slow. Kidding. I know what you meant. The temptation to go bling is very strong, especially, now that I've run out of hardware mods.
If only I could find a stronger clutch .... That is holding back all the other crazy plans i'd hatched a few years ago
Btw, car is a little faster now than when you sat in it. Airfilter was really choked on returning from tvm.

Neovas are not overly hard, when inflated correctly. Most people tend to run higher pressure than required.

nirmal; welcome to TBHP.

Heard of your cars and glad to have you here. And you car looks great. Please do post pix of ICE.

Its the wrong upsize with 205 right?

ripper; aint we doing exterior mods? Xenons etc? Comeon. We need to do something to make it look non-A2Z car

Crazy docs! I know two docs who are crazy too but in my family. Waiting for them to make money to do mods or upgrade.

Hard suspension is BAD for normal city driving - not comfortable for familes to travel on.
