The rims went with the old car, I liked the chrome rims on the black they really suited the dark colour. But the tires were that noisy it sounded like a 4X4 on the road. I don't dislike the present rims although if I had a choice I would pick something different maybe a bit more black on them.
Out of cash at present it cost me $5000 to changeover to this Koup so no new toys for a while. This new Koup has so many extras that all I have done is attach my CAI and also the splash guards and dash mat.
I'm not even going to bother changing the Audio system

First thing is lose the badges!! :) It looks so much sharper without badges to mar the surface.

Having the wheel on the other side is just weird to me.... are your gears the same as in the states or Canada?

Also, car looks really good, i want to get some photos of mine but i dont want pictures of my car near trash bins or anything like that, so hard to find a good backdrop.

Thanks guys for remarks. My car is in at the dealers at present getting door windows adjusted so they don't hit metal trim.
Winter in June seems norm to me, we are the coldest State and it's 60 degrees outside and sunny but frosty mornings.
The peddles and gear lever is the same as the US and Canada, just that you change gear with the left hand.
It's bugging me what to do to change my car, I had plenty of options when I had the base model sedan. But the Koup is already optioned up even reverse sensors (Sonar), I will find something I guess in time to change.
This Koup is so much fun to drive compaired to the Sedan see attch. it's a clipping from an Aussie review , it's maybe why the Koup feels better on the road

You need to through a girl in a bikini in front of that machine mate. Might be a little cold at the moment though of course.
