Thread: A (not so lucky) new 3 MPS owner in Bris.

  1. Default A (not so lucky) new 3 MPS owner in Bris.

    Hey everyone

    Picked up my new 3 MPS gen 1 last wednesday! It's awesome!

    Never owned a turbo car before (N/A kinda guy), so everything is fairly new to me in terms of engine mods/how it drives etc

    Put nearly 400km's on the car from wednesday morning to thursday night.

    ....and then heading to work 2 days later on friday morning some idiot in a van hit me on a roundabout

    So my car is sitting in the garage, undriveable until Wednesday when it's off to get fixed (all under insurance)

    Once I get it back, I'll start with some mods. First on the list is a Corksport SRI and a ECUTEK or Cobb AP retune (Not sure which yet)

    Down the track I'll look at further mods for more power, but for the time being i just want to drive it and enjoy it!


    Looking forward to meeting other MPS owners around SE QLD

    -Mitch

    Agreed Luke...I think we need a dedicated Mods Anonymous Thread . First step is admitting you have a problem hehe.
