Not much to report here, but after many good years of driving my 01 n/a I've finally bought a GT,.
Since this is my first turbo car it looks like I'll be doing a bit of learning pretty quickly!
Got what seems like a decent manual 02 Lux Pack in gold, with 198,000km on the clock and a few nice additions... Looks to have an aftermarket exhaust that sounds ok, JDM brushed metal stereo surround, dodgy DIY grill and a turbo timer :dontknow:

When I picked her up:

Then I can start playing around a bit:
Wing/looks - I've decided to do the swap to early SF front, rear and door trims once I've got some cash for parts and painting
I/C water spray
Gauges

Nice one! I've always like the two tone gold/silver SFs.

Spray that grille black and it will look much less dodgy.

VF48 should be okay, though you could possibly make a few hundred dollars profit if you sold it and picked up a VF35 or similar.

Think I'll just get some black mesh and redo it... The stuff that is in there now doesn't sit flat, so no amount of paint will help :drinks:

Unfortunately not... But looking at the DIY now and recon I can do it with some help from a mate. If not, I'll help him, cause I'm sure he'll be fine with it.
Will be doing water pump too... Anything else people recommend at the same time?

If you have Type M rails you really want the big STi wing anyway :)
