Yeah there is a vid of me on youtube with the exhaust. In person the exhaust is much nicer and the difference really becomes obvious above ~3k rpm. As for the spoiler, it's up to you man.. your car to mod

Plus 1, the colour combo and style are right on the money

Although I bet it rubs harder than a 1m driver at the lights with a short shift kit

Uhh no I don't think I took any pictures. Basically I left the top of the airbox on though, only took off the base of the airbox so looking from on top it still looked stock.

Well the 20i has SFA performance anyway so I didn't do it for that. But with the base of the box off, when you hit 4500rpm there was a (for lack of better description) "VTEC" like changeover in engine note.

Yeah turn 8 is a bitch. I'm always sliding the rear out when trying to power out towards 9.

Haha you tell me when you plan on going and I'll make the day free. I want to go before I install all the suspension stuff to set a pre-mod time. It's due to arrive in Sydney on the 20th but won't be installed for a while.

I definitely can't do the 13th or 27th of this month due to work commitments though.

Suj you should bring the C63!

Hahah C63 sounds good as is, no need to mod the exhaust. But yeah the 20i sounds meaty with the exhaust and intake on it.

Updates 14/9

So finally got my car back after getting Accuair VU4 e-level management for the air suspension. Was pretty bored of the stock wheels so Allen graciously allowed me to use his wheels.

The e-level controller allows independent four corner adjustment (whereas previous set up was just two way front and rear) and also monitors ride height and self-levels itself when out of balance. It's pretty neat stuff and I also changed over to 3/8" lines at the same time to allow for quicker height adjustment. I'll take a video some time later of it in operation but I have some still shots for now.




VU4 Block


Controller

Yeah I was thinking grey centers would be good, but not my wheels Not sure what you mean the guard looks "kinked in," it's just sitting in the stretch gap same as was with the CCWs.
