    As per the title, what did you buy for your car this month?

    - New air fresheners (I like it when my car smells good)
    - New CD case to hold random CD's that I never use
    - First Aid kit and an emergency hammer thing
    - Bluetooth OBD connector (lost my old one) so I can use my Torque app
    - Plenty of vPower

    I've only just bought my S3 so I'm sure I will have a few bits to add here and there.

    Nice :) good thread too! Air fresheners are absolutely critical. I bought some Poorboys air fresheners recently and they were a huge let down.

    I have bought new front arms, new wheels, caps and stickers for the wheels, pressed plates, surrounds for pressed plates, sub and enclosure, new scuttle, tyre dressing applicators, and some blue gloves (and diesel, of course).

    Don't wanna piss on your fire Joey but Dan told me he wasn't taking any more orders as he's going away at the end of the month... If there is still a chance you'll have to give him a shout V soon!

Then spent hours levelling it all up and raising it so the bloody arb didn't rub on the drive shaft. Still all cured handles better than I could of hope happy days

    Fill ya boots mate, when I see a decent bike envy is the last thing I feel as I know how much they must have spent on it! . . Bang for buck I don't think it gets much better than my 10 year old retro ride! :thumbsup:

    I bought some of these as winter wheels, I was so surprised how good it looks on them and even more surprised how much better it handles on them that I ended up selling my 18's!
