Welcome mate, looks like a tidy car.

First list of mods most people do is: tint, lower, wheels, decent tyres

Look up a member Leo or Clarence for HID's both <$300

Difference between springs and coilovers is that springs fit into the original strut, coilovers is a complete replacement of spring and strut. Most of the time are adjustable height and damper but defectable

Absolutely first thing on your list should be swaybars, 22mm front and 20mm rear at a minimum. Will keep your car flatter, handle better, allow you to take more speed through turns and best of all it wears your tyres far more evenly rather than the outside or inside edges doing all the work. Best bang for buck mod you can do.

The Jaycar HID kit is very affordable and easy to install, however bear in mind that it is technically illegal for road use because you won't have the required auto-levelers and water washers.

Also consider doing a tune. There's a lot of untapped power in these N/A cars. I did one on my 2.5i and got an extra 10% max power and torque out of it - big difference!
I was going to procrastinate, but I put it off...

I wish! I don't pick it up until Saturday and I think you'll all be scared off if I bring the daewoo :D

WELL,

I thoguht these were the pre-facelift wheels?

The Car I purchased was listed as a 3.0R Spec B.

No idea what it is meant to have! I will pick it up Saturday Morning and confirm what model it is. I suppose it says in the book?

Picked her up today!
So happy!

There is one small scratch on left hand passenger side door.. about 5cm but pretty deep, does anyone know a good/cheap place in Melbourne to get this repaired? That is about the only negative so far!

First day and already got done by the cops 'I see you exited the round about back there very fast' FOR F*** SAKES! They must be trying to fill a quota, because they followed me for about a kilometer before they pulled me over, ofcourse I wasn't speeding :angel: But seriously.... 1/1 days with the LIB...I hope this isn't an indicator of days to come...


Anyway! Time to start enjoying!
