I wish I could dump some more money into my car, but the kids suck it pretty much all up. I..........am really damn jealous :oops: .  Top secret like you're not going to tell us......or like the japanese company that has insane turbo and Mod products?

Excellent choice.  I am running 17 X 8 with Dunlop SP 5000 245 x 40 all the way around. 8)

Wyaka - I feel your pain.  My son is not cheep, but he loves daddy's race car, so I justify spending all my money on it because after all it is a family car too.

I recomend a little red paint, it is cheap and looks good.

That's how I've gotten this far with upgrades, just a lot slower than if I wasn't married with kids. Red contrasts too much with the overall scheme, trying to make it look fairly stock......sleeper....you know. Maybe I'll meet you at the GTG, can't do the day drives, but can probably go to the BBQ. I work Friday thru Tuesday, kinda sucks but my daycare bill doesn't eat me alive(saving for an APR 2 or 3 stage chip with what I'm saving)

Having a bad Car habit is not a bad thing.  Being a fellow sufferer, I support it completly.  I am sinlge (now), and I have found that is is cheeper to tune my car that go out on dates.

I suppose of all the habits one can develop in life, we have all chosen wisely.

Sounds like everything will look really cool.  I look forward to seeing it sometime.
If it ain't broke, take it apart and fix it!

Mike, that is terrible news.  That is the worst body shop work I have ever heard of, so I would definitely raise Kane with the insurance company.  Give them what for!

Go after the Body shops insurance, not yours.  Most likely your company will not be the one to help, and if they are make sure the subrogate against the body shop so the claim does not go against you.
