Benny L's Comments:

I bought this car unroadworthy and unregistered for $1250 a few months before i was 18. In those few months before i passed my P's i got my tx5 on the road and added a few interior mods, sound system, steering wheel etc. Since being fixed up i have had no problems with it, starts first time everytime, a very strong car. I plan on getting some 17" wheels and lowering it when i get some cash - man i hate being a poor uni student

Modification Listing
Exhaust System: $300

I replaced the old lady looking (and sounding) rear muffler with a hotdog. Decent note but im not too happy with the mounting, and it doesn't really suit the car. I might get a twin tip pipe put on later.

Intake System: $35

Autobarn currently has these vouchers "purchase $50, get $20 off", so i decided to buy a cheap pod filter and adapter. Best $35 i've spent so far

Interior: $200

I put an Autotecnica steering wheel and gear knob in. Adds a bit of modernism

Rolling Stock:

Im looking into putting the BA XR6 17inch wheels on. Im going to Bob Jane to do a test fit, fingers crossed. (see my photo-shopped pic for what it will look like)

Stereo System: $630

At first i installed a pioneer head, 6x9s and some little 4 inches to actually give the car a sound system as the stock one was completely stuffed. I then added a pioneer 10 inch sub and an audiolabs amp to run it a few months later to give it that extra punch.
