    Gonna be spending some s on the car, ideas required.

    Okay Dokey. My car is a Star Silver SXi. All being well, I should shortly have around 200 coming in from eBay sales, which I was planning to spend on the motor. I was planning on sending the first 90 LMF's way in exchange for the bumper extension below. Now, forgetting about boring technicalities such as spraying costs, what should the remaining 110 go towards. I was thinking of putting it towards some Irmscher springs. 225 the last time I checked. :? Any other ideas.

    I would co for a different grill i.e a OPC grill and get some after mark sprins, they are cheaper and just as good if not better than Irmscher gear.

    DirtyMinx - I've got a wee bit too much on my plate at the mo' with work, college, and job interviews to organize a group buy I'm afraid. I'd be worried about screwing it up as well. I had been thinking about it though, and TBH, I don't think a group buy would save us that much anyhow. Here's what Spideymack wrote after we were discussing this in October...

    Spoke to Steve at LMF yesterday. He is willing to reduce the price to 86.95 if more than 5 people get involved in a group buy. BUT this reduced price would only include delivery to 1 or 2 delivery addresses. Whoever they were delivered to would have to forward them on.
    Going by that, and using a guess at how much postage would cost. I reckon it would work out roughly the same as having LMF deliver to your door for 91.53 INC VAT and delivery.



    Craig - Wasn't me mate. I never go down Strathy. Re, the springs. I was gonna go all Irmscher purely for warranty reasons. I've never got round to asking my dealer (Arnold Clark, Garscube Road) what their stance on non-Irmscher springs would be. I know you deal with Pollockshaws Road. Have you asked them similar questions. If so, how did they respond.

    Brett - Which springs would you recommend. Baring in mind I want a nice subtle drop.

    Mark - I might get back to you, depending on answers from above^

    I honestly don't think it would be. You might save about 1, so what's the point? :?

    Although, that quid could go towards a kebab at the weekend. I'll get back to ya.
