Good choice. Wish it wasn't such a prick to get 9.5's on Legacy's, look way better with the deeper concave. 

Should get the centre caps too, look way classier with them.

Just excuse my beat up nuts and dirty wheels. 

PS while matte black looks awesome they're a pain to keep clean, or i'm just a lazy wheel washer, probably a bit of both really.

Agree re cleaning, guess it's time to invest in some chemicals 😏

$10 a week for insurance not being lowered, $90 if I lower it, not worth it

Might want to be more careful with what you say on here re insurance...

 

eh, it's legal and nothing wrong with what he's saying. If the cars under his mothers name and he's a registered driver, there's no issue.

Didn't need to mention that there's lots of $$ with said company but oh well

Being with the same insurance company will help, but as said above just be careful with it under your mums name and being a nominated driver as if they (or more importantly their underwriter) find out that you are the main driver there may be issues.

Sometimes having a lot of money tied up with one company doesn't always mean it will go your way in a claim. as I said sometimes the underwriters can have a say in claims and they have their own rules to go by.

 

Also it depends on how the policy is worded with nominated drivers, I remember having to put the wife down for a nominated driver and had to say what percentage of time she drove.

I think it was mentioned to point out that they probably get slightly different treatment/deals to the guy with just his car policy.

 

@Conducks just remember that you may not be covered at the drag races even if they are on the street. May not be covered at the track as well, best to check the policy

This is what I was referring to, I'm with ami and that is how it's done. Get yourself into trouble if you're a nominated driver at say 20% for arguments sake and then you're involved in an accident - they're going to scrutinise your claim to further extent in that case.

There has been a lot of talk lately regarding insurance and being careful what you say and post on forums, hence my comment.

We really need an [mention=20054]Conducks[/mention] legal and warranty advice thread.
 
 

I just go by what I'm told.

Just make sure it's from the source and not a someone told someone it was OK type of situation. 

You need to start a garage thread 😊

You should also go for a massive fück off turbo and a billet block, and heavy fück off valvesprings, Some hearty head studs, Forged bottom end, Flex fuel E85; Big power.

And then make everyone angry because that's what the internet does. 

Internet = 5% information, 5% advice, 90% Salt

 

Oh; on another note: My gauges arrived today!

FYI: Anyone on here with a business- It is my recommendation to not use Fastway; they're a pack of useless pricks, with poor procedures!!

Anyone on here who works for fastway; Tighten up your procedures!

Those gauges look awesome, and ouch at that tyre...

 

For me, not today, but this past weekend I entered another rally sprint, was great fun and got a good photo of me!
