    Smile Newbie reporting for duty !

    Howdi

    Have been reading some of the posts ! Great community...

    I have a 2006 MPS 6 (Lux), Liquid Silver, lowered with Eibach springs and has Remus exhaust. I have the LED taillights from MPSGarage... awesome mod IMHO. And I also installed the integrated GPS/MP3/DVD unit where the sunglass holder is (in the middle of the dash), which is like the CASKA unit.

    I love the MPS' and am now thinking of getting a MPS3 too !

    Cheers

    it is not dead, it is just starting to grow. We had the first meet up this month.

    Chobe G do you have any ideas? Anyone feel free to put ideas up.

    I am happy to run a cruise from Warburtion and do the two Spurs (reefton and Black) but this one would be good for March. (not good for February)

    Thanks everyone !

    Pics will be posted soonish...

    Just got back from drive to Sydney and back (Melbourne) for wedding... so am now waiting for my ZAS gear to arrive to give the Beast and bit of TLC....

    I can't wait....

    Btw, Sydney roads are super confusing even with SatNav....and scary with Semi's right next to you.... but I came through unscathed..

    Yay..... my ZAS stuff arrived last week and I got to spend some TLC time with the Beast over the weekend.

    I followed the great instructions provided by Joel (ZAS) and also PostManDan [Thanks Guys, super helpful !!]...

    The car is looking a million dollars inside and out...

    The paint is glossy and smooth... the wheels are "armoured" and shiny, and the interior is matte and clean.... absolutely awesome.

    My back is a bit sore, but well worth it....

    On certain angles up close to the paint and under a fluro, I can see fine scratch marks.... i will need to get rid of those in my next detailing run (2-3 months time)... any suggestions ?

    Next is the MX5... i reckon she'll get looked at this weekend (wife should be happy)...

    Ps. I went out for dinner last night and parked far enough away from all the other cars... only to get back halfway through dinner to find that I was parked between a Camry and a Honda Civic (about 30cm free on each side)... i was in a predominantly chinese suburb, so I decided to move the car....under a tree (it was hot last night)....lo and behold, I got back from dinner and the car was covered in light bird sheet !... not happy jan !!... a bit of slick (when I got home) was all that was needed.... although my windscreen is still a schmozle.... so unfortunately no pics yet... maybe tonight.....

    Cheers all
    Weeeeeeee....

    Nice to see another 6 MPS in Victoria we seem pretty rare over here. I've only ever seen one other on the road since I got mine!

    Hey Mr Blue... ...

    Yeah it will definitely be a good idea to grow the Vic MPS scene... maybe we could organise a trip to the Haunted Hills hillclimb circuit... i know a lot of car clubs go down there for the day...

    Only thing is... for those that go on the track.. they may want to bring a spare set of tires...

    Also perhaps a cruise that may have a lunch or a BBQ somewhere...

    I've been to a few cruises with the WRX club and they're more of a community rather than a car club.. i'm not saying let's copy what they do but including a fun activity with a cruise it's always good

    a cruise to go Go karting at somerton would be nice

    anyway... just throwing some ideas..

    what does everyone think?

    **don't mean to hijack this thread... just responding to a question... **
