    Performance Accessories under consideration for future fitment
    - ECU Tune
    - Full exhaust
    - Upgraded FMIC
    - K04 turbo
    - Turbo boost guage - still thinking about how to best do this without a "rice effect"
    - Front and rear brake upgrades - rears are drums so exploring disc options from T5s
    - different wheels?

    Looking good! I would maybe suggest don't rush into the tourneau if you haven't already paid for it. I love all the things you have set said for it, plus the red is awesome!

    Delivery!

    Delivery happened today.

    Turns out I got lucky and Big Red has the MY14 upgraded MFD and the MFSW with buttons on the right! Awesome

    The colour coded front bar came out perfect!
