Default My DD GS3 project, so much for leaving it stock...

Hey Guys, figured it put some pics up of my GS, i bought it as a nice DD, but had to mod it some I bought it cheap in non running condition due to lost keys, and have been fixing it up little by little for the past 2 months.

day i dragged it back from boston to maine on my trailer. flat tires, one wheel locked up, smashed front fender and broken rear spring.

and its current condition, lowered, fender work, new wheels, clay bar/buff/polish and wax, fixed alot of little problems, straightend out the dented fender for now till i can buy a new one, and custom Greddy evo2 axlebacks.














dirty pic at the gas station


ive got under 3k in the whole car with all the mods, so im not doing bad money wise. Need to get the front bumper painted and get a new RF fender. then a bunch more cosmetic mods like a lip and m3 trunk spoiler. Pretty sure im gonna do the turbo motor swap come springtime since its easy and not too expensive... Anyways, thanks for checking her out

hey thanks for the complements!

the exhaust is quiet at idle and at crusing speed its very mellow. when you stand on it and get the revs above 3k its louder but not overwhelming. its a very flowing noise and not really raspy....
ill try to get some videos of it with a good sound clip for you!

its a GREAT exhaust,quiet at idle and smooth at regular driving, get on it and it wakes up but not loud or raspy AT ALL IMHO, this is same one i have but mine is the full system and not just the axlebacks

BTW we have a soundclip thread where this clip should already be (not forsure but it should be)
