  6. Hi guys, just needing a lil advice on stereo upgrade. Wanting to add an amp and sub to the standard stereo in the FG, have already upgraded the speakers (splits infront + speakers in rear doors). Im looking and buying a Kicker KX700.5 to power the package. Had this setup in my BF but had the RCA mod done, so was easy. Just wondering if I can use the line level input on the Kicker amp to power all the speakers and the sub? Cheers

    My Turbo Is...

    BF MK II 04/07 I had to have the ZF Box
  8. Hey Mate I picked up a x-chaser, it was a unmarked highway car from Sale, is a 04/07 build with 60k on it. I had a good look over it before I bought it and its as good as any BF2 out there. Hasnt missed a beat and have had no problems with it at all. No suspension issues, replaced springs to lower it but standard springs had no faults. No issue with rear swaybar or link either. Runs like a dream. What can I say I got lucky. Like any car (new or 2nd hand) you just need to go over it and make sure its in the condition you want. Cheers
  9. Yeah went from 17s to 20s. got some getting used to I guess.
  10. Just put a set of 20's on the car on saturday (pics to come shortly) and as expected my speedo is now out. I was thinking it would be about 4-5kays off at 100km/h. I went cruising on sunday and hooked up the GPS to see how far out it was. I found that it is actually 9kays off at 100, so speedo reads 92 but car is doing 100. Is this about normal? I have 255s on the rear and 225s on the front, rims are 8.5inch wide front and rear. Car is a BF Mk2 XR6 Turbo. Also wondering if there are any places in the western suburbs that can re-calibrate the speedo? Cheers
  11. Yeah I can see that it wouldnt be worth paying an extra $150 for 10mm of extra tread. I may be able to get a pair of 255's for a good deal, that's why im asking how wide I can go on the 17's. Yeah there are some really good deals out there for rim/trye packages, but I will need to do suspension at the same time, that's what is holding me back. can get a nice set of 19's with tyres for 2k, but need another 1k for suspension. I like doing things at once to avoid the car looking like a 4wd with 19's on it. that's why I decided to spend $400 on tyres for now and save up to do the wheels/suspension mods properly. Cheers
  12. Was looking at getting some 19s for the car instead of replacing tyres, but due to unforseen circumstances I wont be able to afford them at this time . Therefor im need of a new set of tyres for the rear. Just wondering how big (width wise eg 255) can I go on the standard xr6 turbo 17's? If I gotta have 17s they may as will grip a little. Cheers
  13. Hey Guys Over the weekend I decided that I wanted to hardwire my GPS car charger cable so that I didnt have the charger cable reaching over the steering wheel and in the way all the time. I wired up the car charger and it is recieving power, however when I plug it into my gps, for some reason the gps thinks it is a usb connection and the the gps screen displays the gps - computer connection. I have a Mio Digiwalker C520. Any help to fix this problem would be appreciated. Cheers
  14. Hey Guys Attempted to do this customisation today and had some success, but hit a snag. I wired up the cig lighter and it is recieving power, however when I plug it into my gps, for some reason the gps thinks it is a usb connection and the the gps screen displays the gps - computer connection. I have a Mio Digiwalker C520. Any help would be appreciated. Cheers
