    Silver I've found a JDM grille on Ebay US. It says they should fit. Has anyone had experience? If its going to be like fitting a skyline front to a magna I'll pass lol.

    The CF and plastic ones fit reasonably well. Have you got an image or link of the item in question? Here's mine anyway

    lol we always have ebay links. That's exactly the same grille I have mate. I've just done a bit of custom work on mine. I paid $89.00USD but that's a similar price

    Awesome! So it wasnt a hard fit? Lol on another forum I'm on if you post an Ebay link outside of an Ebay thread its an automatic ban.

    why is it a ban? The fit is ok, however you need to drill the holes (they don't come pre-drilled) and they don't line up exactly. But I managed to line them up and make it work fine. Put spacer washers underneath. The hardest part is getting off the stock grille without snapping it

    Awesome! Well it might give me something to do in uni holidays if I'm still at my current job Hopefully it won't be too hard for me Is it relatively good quality? I know some fibreglass gear you buy from the net is really crap quality.

    Cheers on the congrats! I'm pretty stoked and think I got a really good deal!

    I'm either at Maitland, Newcastle or Maryland. So Newcastle area Might see what happens, thats the day after my birthday so if I'm not too ill/tired might take the trip up.

    Yeah, I've recently joined a few other forums to have a look (this one, xr5 forums and ozvr4) and they seem so much more laid back compared to AMC. I know people who don't post anything because theyre either too scared because they'll get banned or that some douche will tell them how stupid they are. Any Ebay/youtube link thats outside of the dedicated thread automatically leads to infraction/ban. Slightly going off topic ban as well. 9/10 if you provide constructive criticism to improve the forum you're shot down and told its not a democracy. Anyway, I'll stop the bitching and negativity but yeah they are Nazis.

    If I did what I've done here asking a few specific questions about the car I'd either be abused because I didn't search through 50 pages of search results or told that I'm stupid.

    PS thanks for the help guys. If I didnt hear that the problems were rare events from you guys and my mate who has an MPS6 I'd have probably compromised and settled for a clapped out Galant Vr4.

    grats on your car
    pity you couldnt come out and give it a good test on the weekend, but sounds like you had a good reason behind it
    the next even we have is in 3 weeks, http://www.ozmpsclub.com/forum/club-...h-october.html it's more of a get together than an actual cruise, but you'll get to meet alot of the people there
    the one after that is likely to be the xmas BBQ, http://www.ozmpsclub.com/forum/club-...ch-2010-a.html

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