    I thought about that, but I'm not going to be doing any serious modding, such as replacing engines, or any crazy stuff :P

    Just picked the car up, and OH MY GOD OH MY GOD, I love it!!!

    The radio keeps going a little funny from time to time, not sure if it's because I'm in the city centre though, or not.  And the right front speaker wasn't working at first, but now it is, weird.  I'll keep an eye on these things, if they continue to happy I'll probably claim on the warranty the car came with.
