    Default Soon to be MPS owner!

    Morning fellow forumites, Im pleased to say I should be purchasing my first MPS this weekend (hopefully).

    I come from a bit of a motorsport background - karting, formula ford etc, and until recently have been heavily involved in 4wding - predominantly rock crawling based stuff.

    Although with the crapping out of my 4wd I was in the market for a bit more luxury and fun to drive daily to work, and with that in mind remembered driving the old man's MPS 6 and brother in laws MPS 3 when they had them and thought why not!

    Forum looks to be full of information which no doubt ill be trawling through and hopefully in the future get to catch up with a few like minded people!

    Take it easy!

    Hey Jarryd and welcome!

    You just missed on the Perth boys cruise this weekend. Perhaps next time you can join us if you like! Post up some pics when you pick up your car!

    Nice, 06 was a good year

    Same as mine (minus the leather etc) I have the light-weight spec

    Welcome to check out my thread if you like (just click the yellow RR on my sig) to give you some idea on mods.

    You're welcome to catch up with us or join us on a cruise and see the mods at work. That might help you decide whether or not to modify.

    If anything, I recommend lowering...probably the biggest noticeable difference in my ride. The rest is just power, cosmetic or "I'm bored"

    With great power comes great fuel consumption...

    Thanks, it is what I would term a silver but probably a light grey (insert fancy car manufacturer jargon here)

    Welcome Jarryd.

    Let us know when you pick up the beast.
    The fancy car manufacturer jargon may be Anthracite, but I stand to be corrected. (It may also be arachnophobe, I always get those two confused).
    We'll be having another club do before too long so hopefully we'll all catch up then.
    Have fun, and please don't vote for Rob Johnston (seeing as though you're a Hillary's lad).

    i have it, and the smile cannot be wiped from my face. Well that is until a P plater in a hektik commonwhore decides to let his foot slip and drive into the back of my new pride and joy *rage face* luckily it is the tiniest tiniest scratch, but still doesnt detract from how angry I am.

    Guess I will just have to drive it more to put the smile back on my face. Now i can see why you guys love these things so much!

    Are you serious?! That is BS! Of all the nights, this was the night someone had to hit you. Are you getting it fixed? I would and they can pick up the bill and also report dangerous driving if that was the case.

    Tell me about it, I have to be extra careful when on the bike from d***head drivers. Glad you like it mate! Join us on a cruise and you'll love your car even more

    Thanks for the kind words guys. Went and saw a mate at a panel shop this morning, he will sort it out for me for nothing because it only ended up being a small crease, the scratch buffed out last night so thats a plus.

    Now I just hate being stuck at work because I want to drive it all the time! haha.

    I've never regretted paying 800 to have a towbar fitted.
