    Default Another BL MPS!!

    Hi Guys

    I have been lurking on the forums for a while having a look and have decided to join. I just picked up my black MPS 09 today and have already done 300 km .

    I have come from a 01 magna VRX and i am in love.

    I was in the same position as Manic MPS was in deciding between all those exact same cars and the MPS won out for me also!

    Initial thoughts are how responsive and tactile the car is when on a hot run and then how docile it can be in 6th cruising. It is i most say the ultimate GT come sports car, an awesome balance. I say GT because i drove 200 km from kingaroy to brisbane (so the d'agulair highway which is not so smooth and snakes around) and it just ate up the Kays and i still felt fresh after such a drive

    I picked up a base model with a couple of add ons, i am disappointed i missed out on those horn as HID lights of the luxury, but couldn't justify the rest. There are plenty of things i love and it just makes me smile every time i hit 3rd gear!

    Dislikes are the hard to use I-pod connector i added as an extra, it is lees user friendly than my old pioneer head unit, but i will have to get used to it i think. And the Lumbar adjust is slightly off at the moment.

    I look forward to cruises and putting in input, sounds like a good forum to be a part of, coming from the very friendly Aussiemagna Forums.

    Peace Shibbs!

    hey guys, i been too busy driving around to really get on here to reply.

    To rfzd: i got it for 42 with rear parking sensors, i pod connection, floor mats and headlight protectors drive away, which i think is an exceptional price.

    1350 kays in and she is nice and settled, i been getting around 8.5l/100km combined cycle sort of driving with little squirts here and there so very happy with the fuel consumption.

    If anyone is looking for a tint job in north brisbane hit up instant tinting in geebung, they did an excellent legal tint job on my car for a VERY low price, try $250 which is a bargain.

    I have only one issue at the moment and that is that at about 600 km the car started making a funny sound but the mechanic ensures me that its the solenoids on the injectors ???? :S,

    If anyone with a new MPS has a sounds clip of thier engine running that would be really helpful to compare to what i am hearing but she still drives fine and goes hard when i need it.

    And i think that even though the new car looks more agressive, people STILL don't know what it is or why it goes so fast, still a bit of a sleeper in my eyes. But the Toowoomba police have a red one in their fleet so look out for it on the range!

    Peace out
    Shibbs

    Howdy MPShiv, a big welcome to the forums and great to have you along for the ride.

    It's a nice feeling, eh.....checking out all the cool cars then finding one that picks YOU! With my purchase, I really wanted to tick ALL of the boxes or as many as possible. Damn, the MPS ticked the boxes alright and then some. I still feel as silly about it now as I did the day I drove out the showroom.

    Bugger, you HAD to get a black one didn't you!! I can hear them chanting on the forums already.....yeah yeah OK alright already "Team Black" reigns supreme.....I give up (but I still love my blue beasty).

    ENJOY!
