Yeah Luke that was me in the parra rd parking lot... you've got a v shiny lib and nice front lip. could spot it a while away, and is quite distinctive with the silver grille ... thats the first time I did a close pass-by, and I wasnt sure whether to wave or not!

I think I've seen your lib before too, are you in the inner west too? Next time I'll wave (and wife will be thinking "wtf is he waving to random folk?")

Next mod - getting a spot in the queue for a Kido Tune when Matt visit Sydney next month!

Benny and Cruisn - just thought you'd like to know, when I was driving back from Bondi Junction today, a nice black lowered gen4 Outback pulled up next to me.... and the driver was having a long hard perve at my brembos :mrgreen:

Nice photos Simon! Which bars did you get? 20,22,24? I have the 22mm on the medium setting, made the car handle soooo much better, you'll be please with the handling improvements :D

Thanks Alex - I love the subtlety of them, and really match the charcoal enkeis :) Mark/cruisn sent me a teaser for rear nuggets - he knows how to twist my arm :mrgreen:

I ended up getting the 20mm bar and upgraded HD mounts.... didnt want to go too extreme. Can't wait to feel the improvement in handling :)

Freshly KiDo tuned .... happy times ahead :)

I caught up with Matt this weekend just gone - very friendly, and was happy to explain and answer my newbie questions. After several minutes of tapping into his keyboard, we took my car for a spin.

Once we hit the straight and came to a set of lights, Matt subtley adjusted the SI drive to Sports#. Lights turned green, car felt ballistic (compared to before), and hauled ass (in Henry speak)

I really appreciated how Matt took the time to explain all the adjustments he had done, and even made tweaks on the fly to suit my driving style.

The biggest things I noticed - muchly improved driveability (smoother and more consistent power delivery), more torque down low, and (felt like) quicker gear changes. Will test fuel usage and see what initial readings are like (I'm about to fill up and go for a spin :))

............... and HKS Dump Pipe just got added to the mod list
