Awesome build mate. Love the car!
Thanks bud. Your post just made me realize that I haven't done an update of this thread in ages.
It's due for one as the car is now running MR230! And it's awesome!

Awesome! Very interested in the difference from MP215. Just picked up my MO FiST and the MP215 upgrade is due in 3 weeks, but I can see that the MR230 will always be on my mind...

Late to the party and not exactly a short read but I can say I have thoroughly enjoyed following you on your FiST journey haha! (only 30ish pages!)

Love seeing a fellow Sydney owner fight the "Aussie Tax", with stupid shipping costs and unavailability of parts, and just push on with mods :) as a new owner (around 5000km driven!), and looking into the MP215 kit, thanks for the inspiration (along with the other Sydney-siders who have popped up!). Any tips/websites to get parts that you can recommend from your experience that ship to Australia?

Check out the supporting vendors of this forum for a start, nearly ever one of them ship to Australia.

This is a build thread people, not the place for chit chat.
Please ask all further questions via PM.
I will get around to an update on this thread at some stage this year!

Also this will be going in once I have enough $$ saved up to buy an upgraded clutch kit from OEM Denied.

Here's how it sits now,

16 X 8 et 25 escort cosworth rims
225/45/16 Toyo proxies T1Rs
Maxton side splitters
Maxton RS rear diffuser
Maxton rear side splitters
Jumdoo fender flares, 30mm front, 50mm rear. (Rear wheels have 20mm billet spacers)
About 15mm cut out of existing fenders. (As pictured)

Looks great. Those wheels fit nicely with the arch flares and the splitter makes it look a bit more purposeful from behind.

Yeah but a lot of the vendors are U.S based and a lot of the hardware doesn't fit and none of the software is compatible with our cars as they are the Euro built cars.

Shipping sucks. Basically if you want the parts, you pay the shipping and now if it costs over $1K AUD you pay a customs tax too. Just how it is. Shithouse.
