Model: T30 Series I TI-Luxury
Year/Plate: 2003
Colour: Bluuuueee
Mods: Nudge bar, Wind Deflectors, Plastidipped grill, Painted rims, Floor mats.
So I recently joined and i'd like to put my ride up here for others to see and possibly ask a few questions.

So here is the Blue Turd (affectionately named)

Image
Current status.

Mods done chronological order
-Front Grill Plastidipped
-Nudge bar
-Weathershields
-Rims Sprayed
-Floor Mats

Contemplating mods
-Remove spoiler (I know this is a big job)
-Roof racks
-AT Tyres
-Sunraysia Rims
-Towbar (low funds maybe not)
-Driving lights (present from boyfriend ETA soonish)
-Load space organizer (custom made DIY)
-Roof awning (planning after roof racks + birthday present from parents)

The car came with the genuine load space mat (carpet) and load space blind. Leather seats, 6 cd stacker, cruise control, airbags, 140,xxxk's on the clock and a full service history. Owned by a company for the first 9 years then sold through a dealership, bought by last owner, he had it for 3 months and needed to sell it to pay for UNI fees to stay in the country. Bought it for $8000 Definitely cheap for the model, k's and the condition.

More pictures!

Looks clean!

However if you go for black shiny alloys, you need to keep your tyre sidewalls slick and black too - faded dirty grey won't cut it!

Really nice looking truck. Is the awning a pre-bought item? Would be interested in seeing some more pics of it in action. Its something i'd like on my truck for 4x4 response work and camping but a lot of these end up costing a lot!

This is the only pic I have of it extended haha. Going camping this weekend so i'll snap a few pics of it being used properly.

I bought it off Ebay, it uses two l brackets to attach to the roof racks.

Tidy car - welcome! Looks a bit higher than our T30 (especially at the back). Has it had a lift kit?
