Thank you for the offer Kavesh. Will keep it in mind and let you know if something is required.

Getting the brake calliper kit, air filter hose and the Side mirror housing flown in from Madras tommorow. Trying hard to get the car drivable for the fiat meet on sunday the 13th. Exhaust would not be done and the car externally would not be a 100%. New tyres have been put on.

You are going to drive the car without the exhaust ?

Is it driveable without exhaust & muffler ?

I would not want the cops troubled every few meters that i drive as the sound would be loud as hell . I would drive the car with her current rusted exhaust. The new exhaust would be ready only by next week.

Yes a car is drivable with only the headers but it is not recomended. The engine sound would be megaphoned and the cops chasing you for sound pollution. The average of the car would also drop tremendously but the power increase would compensate for it.

I think a VIP modded LS is pretty hot too.

Awful and ugly is the word, probably worse than awful. I dont fancy Japanese cars my friend and they get the least preference.

I did mention she is a V12 but of a different pedigree. She would only come home by end 2010 or first quater 2011 and i would be the second owner of her.

common gordon that lip is overthe top overdone not to mention most impractical! WALD makes good kits that look 1000 time better than this. These kits make German and japanese cars look good

The wheels dont suit the car. The front lip is way too overdone and so are the side skirts if you look closely they match the front. If the extras were removed the car would have looked good, not to forget the wheels changed.

Like you said each to their own. If you like it and own it i am no one to complain.

Yes... It looks like an over-designed child's toy. Which bits does one fold out to turn it into a robot?

With that silly "lip" at the front, it might make a suitable street-cleaning vehicle --- or even street-levelling vehicle.

Optional bull bars, anyone?

That skirt with that extended lip sure looks ugly. Definitely should not go for it.
@gordon : No offense but do you really dont see anything weird with that skirt at the front.?

That "lip" or 'air-dam' in the front reminds me of a 'cow-catcher' from a railway locomotive.

Cheers,
