It's about 4cm off the ground at the lowest point. Lucky it has a flat bottom and short overhangs!

But yeah, i got defected in it a few years ago when i went to Valla (Northern NSW) for a big VW event.
...one of the defects included the mythical 'empty washer bottle'

But yeah, otherwise the cops just leave me alone really. It's (perceived) as being too slow to hoon.

had the same thoughts after i bent mine.. what would i buy next.. but that all went out the window 2km up the road from the repairs i was hooked back into the sp20. I'll be keeping mine forever at this point have invested to much $$$ to just let it go. Probably at some point go buy a cheap daily

Major plans at this point FS-ZE swap for it. Once thats done start updating the interior

those rx7's are really expensive! very nice tho, I'd have to say the same, if I can afford an mps or an rx7 then I will get one, but I'll be looking for an investment property soon...
