he journey begins with the purchase of a new MPS6 in December 2006...

Before this car I had a Pulsar SSS- great car that i treated like absolute crap and it just would not stop...I even went 35,000km without a service and it was still running pretty good...

When I started looking at cars, I first started looking at an imported EVO 7, but it was just to basic (I had had regular access to an EVO 6 at this time so knew what they were like performance wise)- great for performance but I needed a bit of class as I was taking customers out in my car...

I then looked at the Honda Accord Euro, the Liberty GT Spec B and the Mazda 6MPS. All of these cars had good and bad points- the Honda did not have enough power and I favored AWD. The Subi just did not do it for me- brakes were crap, power felt down...the MPS just felt spot on- everything just seemed to fit for me and th price was much better then the Subi. So the decission was made- I was getting the MPS6 and the journey had begun...



At this point in time I had just discovered Final Inspection, but had not used any high end detailing products (boy was that to change!).

Here is a pic after 3 coats of Zaino 2pro and three coats of P21s...







Here is my Car PC motorised screen...



And here is a pic taken early one morning at Stanwell Tops (Near Wollongong sort of)...after a thrash through the national park...



Lowered with new shoes...8x235...guards rolled and still rub...need more role!

CAI and Turbo Hybrid BOV installed as well (no pic)



My Random Obital...



Some P21 beading shots of dew early one morning...





Oct 2008





After a Ute ran into me.... :-(



And a quick shot after repaired...the repair was fantastic by the way...



Corksport Exhaust...this mod makes the car sound like it should of right out of the box!

    Downpipe has now been installed for about a month...and what a difference it makes...Launching seems so much easier now and the car is loud. When i say loud, what i actually mean is LOUD. I can not set car alarms of when I choose it has such a deep, throaty roar to it now...lol
