    Thumbs up how rude of me :)

    New to this Forum and already asking questions and didnt even say hello.I bought my 2006 mps 3 about a week ago and I LOVE THIS CAR. Its true red in colour so it must go faster . What a great club already read some great info and feel right at home already .

    I just turned 40 so people would say im having a mid life crisis, i believe life is just starting especially with this awsome little car i love it. Its an honour to be here and the tips and help about my car is just amazing.....thanks so much for such a welcoming and helpful site.......Thanks.....dave

    Dave!

    Enjoy your stay! Any questions you may have usually gets answered rather quickly so fire them off! Any pics of your 3? Cruises come and go so when the next one comes along, raise your hand!

    Geeze Dave...

    Haha, welcome mate and glad we could help sort out a good mechanic for ya. Some things to tell the wife which may help

    All stock MPS exhausts are crap...yours has a hole in it and needs to be replaced...including the downpipe, cheapest option is a 3" mandrel bent
    It is very dangerous to over-boost...so you'll need a gauge to monitor your boost.
    The turbo is smoking...you'll need a new one, the biggest one is on sale this week only
    Your stock TMIC has a crack in it, you'll need another...what do you know...its also on sale.
    It's dangerous to have handling like a boat...you NEED lowered suspension to be safer on the road.

    There are ways to justify everything!

    With great power comes great fuel consumption...

    glad to see you're enjoying the car dave
    downpipe is a good start, better engine note, more grunt down low and up top!

    From stock, to GT3071, to substantially less modded, many lessons learned!

    If you were a hot blonde young girl that would probably help
    I just keep telling my girlfriend my car needs new stuff (insert reason here)
    She caught on pretty quick
    I just be honest and say "CAUSE I WANT IT!" ...now she just frowns when I buy stuff and I give her a huge smile...

    3 options
    a forum PM to 2XS would be my suggestion
    2nd: get a CPE one from MPS garage (has potential to take a while )
    3rd: get a CPE one from Edge Autosport (need high flow cat tho)

    2XS Racing

    BOOM! 2XS is also on the forums, so hit him up if you need anything parts wise.

    Also, though it never works, a good justification to your spending needs or to the question of "Why do you need to buy that?". To quote the Simpsons, "SHUT UP! THAT'S WHY!"

    Expect a backhand if you're inexperienced.

    We're still working out how much it would cost to ship from Edge Autosport, so if you're interested, as soon as we get a response from them we'll let you know. Reason why is they mark down their gear from CPE, which is always a bonus.

    You have the wrong car, didn't anyone tell you Perth is the 6MPS capital of the world?

    Welcome Dave. They did tell you that attending our cruises is compulsory, didn't they?

    I've been modding in pieces, bit by bit. Or I eBay old stuff I don't need (stock wheels/exhaust). I don't want to impact us financially with massive purchases (although I would love to). Got to sell some camera gear next for some more technical bits.

    Good luck with the negotiations.
