Back to a 172! (w/ Pics)

Hey everyone, been lurking a lot on the forums recently, thought I'd introduce myself and my ride! Finally got my photos done and am keen to show my car. I have recently acquired my second 172 in less than twelve months, it's not surprising that I've found my way back to the RSC, as I'm pretty damn pleased with the car. 2003 model in black. It's the perfect combination of performance, handling, and importantly, fuel economy. Coming from an E36 2.8 that got 13L/100km on a good day, the difference in economy is great.

 

I bought the car with the following carried out:

 

Exhaust:

182 Manifold

Full 2.5 inch 182 exhaust

High Flow Cat

K-Tec Unsilenced Centre Section

K-Tec muffler

 

Suspension/Bracing:

Raceland coilies

Rear Sway Bar

Front/Rear OMP Strut Braces

KTR Camber Bolts

KTR Top Mounts

 

Engine, etc.:

CAI with feed to bumper + carbon fibre enclosure/heat shielding

Full silicone Forge Motorsport hose kit

TDC sensor upgrade

KTR Upper/lower engine Mounts

KTR Upper/lower gearbox mounts

Magnecor leads

RS Tuner

 

Brakes:

Front slotted rotors w/ new wheel bearings

New OEM rear rotors w/ bearings

Ferodo pads

 

Other/Cosmetic:

Genuine updated RS badge

Immaculate 182 wheel w/ working cruise control

White spoiler brake light

KTR Smoked side repeaters w/ silvertec bulbs

 

Wheels:

Currently sitting on standard wheels, but with the car I got some 16' Speedy FIN Lite's which will be going on as soon as I get them sorted with new tyres.

 

Done a few small cosmetic things myself:

Front grille/fog light surrounds gloss black

White badging (including 2.0 16v moulding emblems)

Engine Cover delete

Euro plates

 

Plans:

Polish manifold (tips anyone?! haha)

Yellow Foggies

Short shifter (opinions?)

Speaker upgrades

Sound clip if you're interested.

 

To be honest I'm probably leaving some things out, but thats all I've got at the moment. Not sure if the PO is on the forums or not but never know, maybe so. Thanks for reading, enjoy the flicks!

 

Also this forum seems like a great community, I'd be definitely keen to rock an OzRS sticker if they're available.

 

Cheers
