    To get straight to the point, as some of you may know I have an EG which I recently had a small accident in. It's all been repaired but I've spent nearly

    Fair point but I like things to be perfect. For the price I payed to get it repaired is good for what it is, however, the front corner isn't 100% aligned properly (cause i know it's there, to any other person they wouldn't probably notice it), the previous owner fitted a crap exhaust backbox and cut out a slot to allow the backbox to come through the rear bumper, so when I get a decent exhaust I'll have to get another rear bumper and get that sprayed...The camber on the drivers side is out due to accident + tracking (ok not end of the world but just annoying things).


    It's like never ending.

    with your family connection and cheap nature of EG parts i don't see you getting this perfect an issue at all and to be fair i don't know your fund situation but if you got it... do it... then look back when its perfect and you can thing damn look what i did and where it came from... thats whats its all about... all IMO

    I hear what you're saying which is very true, and I'm taking all your advice in.


    It's just very difficult to decide. You must see where i'm coming from, with the amount of money I've spent, and pretty much gone no where. Wheels/suspension is no prob, but things like respray, the spray done after the repair isn't brilliant compared to the original spray job but hey,
