Thread: Greetings from the Sunshine Coast!

  1. #1

    Default Greetings from the Sunshine Coast!

    Hi everyone. I've been on the hunt for a BK MPS for a few weeks now and today i picked up my 07 luxury sports.

    A little about me. My name is Ben, im 21 and im a student here on the sunshine coast at USC. I have 6 months to go until i have a degree in sitting on a computer all day (Graphic/web design) I work for the lovely QLD government making school calendars (Yes, there is such a job and i do it!) I owned a Mazda 323 SP20 for a couple of years previously and it got written off because a man slammed on his brakes and i rear ended him. No one was hurt, just my baby. (car, no children yet thanks!) I enjoy movies and very keen into photography.

    anyways enough ramble amout my face. The car.

    I picked up my new bad boy today, proceeded to drive into the city to buy a lens from a guy while i was in town. Yeah, probably wasn't the best idea when im not used to the clutch. Oh well.


    About it:
    2007 BK Luxury Sports pack.
    Leather seat bits
    Bose sound system
    cruise control
    Dual climate control and all that jazz.
    Factory fitted HID's/projectors
    LED tail lights
    Random other nothing bits that comes with the luxury one.


    Mods:
    K&N SRI
    some kind of BOV, think its a HKS. Its plumbed so it doesn't blast, i want stealth.
    Thats all. As of today i put Aero wipers on it from my SP20.


    Whats the plans?
    needs a epic cut and polish, its like sandpaper.
    Slotted rotors and some new pads.
    New window tint, way not dark enough for my standards. 20% all round im thinking.
    Maybe change the wheels, im really liking these more now
    Coilovers + sway bar
    flash tune
    Install my audio (bye bye bose)
    Need new floor mats, these ones are crap
    weather deflectors


    images i took tonight in a carpark and i didn't edit them because im too lazy. Don't worry, good ones will come to those who wait.

    Look for a stock looking VR (Velocity Red) GENII with a Sean Connery-esk guy driving. Then watch it warp speed into the distance. His car isn't stock. But you don't now that until it's too late.

    If you ever meet up with @Oldhead make sure he pops the bonnet for you. Bloody work of art under there and the best TMIC money CANT buy
