    I love the twin pipes and the dash! The sub setup isn't bad either.

    Wow that is a tidy looking centre console! What are the two controls at the bottom? A boost controller and a...??

    Is the twin pipe rear skirt a custom job? Or off the shelf

    cheers

    I like the way the sub is mounted, other then that it doesn't interest me that much, Unless you tell me that it is a ball tearing 500hp monster :p

    Is it from the UK?

    You've got to appreciate custom dash panels like that, though - its lovely work :)

    Yeah I really like the dash, he has an Apexi AVC-R and an AFC in there. The rear bumper uses two of the standard plastic flanges that VR-4's normally only have one of, so it looks completely stock.

    love the twin exhaust might have to do that at some point, have heard and seen a few do it now.
    apart from that its just a standard white auto not anything special from the looks of it.

    Nice, i wish that dash was a replacement aftermarket part as opposed to custom. Looks heaps better then the wood grain my opinion

    You can even buy them NEW! :D

    Just make sure you get the matching tray inserts etc or the end result will look a bit weird ;)

    Actually a good point. My c-f dash has a black woven mesh lining as well inside the sunglasses holder, etc. Nice lil' touch.

    I like how brad mentions "...you just have to look around". Next time I go to NZ (maybe early next year, North Island) I'll have to go with next-to-nothing and come home with a sh*teload of parts.
