Nice ride! *th-up* Not a big fan of the lip though, but you mentioned it's gone, it looked too busy, IMO. Welcome to MAX.

Hello all. The pedals are replicas and they came with little M logo's for all three pedals. They only cost like $65 so what the hell they look good. Yes the front lip is OFF the car, just to damn low for me I was hitting everything. Ancaster is very close to Hamilton. And I live not very far from garth at all, just off the linc actually! I'm like 5 mins away from you!

Yeah I forgot to add that, looks like it won't even make it over a speed bump. Is it a Hamman lip? U got pics of the CF intake? What make is it?

I can't really tell by the picture. But it looks like the K30.4 front spoiler w/ the high speed lip. Is this true? I've never seen ANYONE with this setup. Ever since I got my 318 back in 1996 that was my dream setup. I had the K30.4 front spoiler for a breif period but never installed it.

Beautiful car!

Thanks for all the kind words guys! Yes I still have the lip, but it looks like I have a buyer for it. I will let you know if that doesn't work out. Otherwise I can get you another brand new one because I am sponsered by a store in Hamilton who can this stuff within like 5-10 days.

Hey, where did you get those pedals from for $63?? Is the ///M sticker just on top or is it in like a little indentation so it wont fall off. Was that $63 cad?

Sorry I live very close to there.....but not quite.....you know when you come off the linc, and it just turns into Mowhawk, well keep going straight (as in don't make a turn off the linc at all, just keep going into Ancaster), and I'm on a steet right off there......it's called Lodor st., there is a big pink coloured house (2 family home) and mine is right beside it. It's just a bungalo. BUT my car is not there......it's stored for the winter......there is a MINT 1993 mercury topaz gs coupe in the driveway........that is what i drive in the winter......*thmbsdwn* :moon: *mumble* . But I would love to get together sometime and check out your guys cars. That would be sweet. Talk to you guys soon,

We usually have meets in the summer, where did u get your pedals from man????

98323IS
12-12-2002, 09:19 PM
Ya sorry I didn't answer your question..........I got my pedals from a place in Hamilton called Lethal Rides, they are replica's, and the M/// sticker is not embeded, it's just stuck on. Ya they were like $70 or so I believe......they have a set sitting there right now I can call and check the price if you want. Let me know.


Also, no the rims are not polished, they are like inbetween a gun-metal and titanium colour. I LOVE them and the colour. I got them at a place called Cheap Thrills in Milton........good prices too.

My exhaust was done at a place in Burlington called Budget Exhaust........they are AMAZING there. They did the exhaust on my last car (1999 Nissan Maxima ES) and also did a kick ass job. I just picked out a muffler, and they did the rest......came in under 600 for everything too. Depending on where you live, you should drop by. I can let you hear my exhaust too when it gets warmer out if you like........cause it sounds bad ass!!! As for chips, only Dinan makes one for our cars I believe, and the are $824 CDN!!! Dinan also makes throttle body, and cold air intake. Budget Exhaust can also custom make headers, and put on free flow cat. converters. If you want to go faster...............those things will make quite a difference.

I have the exact same pedals on my car w/ the M badge. They are AC Schnitzer replicas, around $70Cdn. You can purchase them at almost any aftermarket car parts place in Richmond Hill and Markham

Thats jokes, I looked at those rims at cheap thrills man, I was going to buy them, but they were a bit to much.
They don't have many BMW fitting rims there.

Are u serious? Do they have em at Pacific mall??

98323IS
12-13-2002, 04:21 PM
Oh ya OF COURSE they have them at Pacific Mall.......like every car store in there does.........for sure and yes you should expect to pay around $70 or so.........that's about right.

Thanks buddy, are u gonna come to the cruises next year?? Your car looks sick. What do you mean you got sponsored??

98323IS
12-13-2002, 07:22 PM
OH YA I will be there at the cruises..........thanks for the kind words about the car. I think the people around the Hamilton area should hook up sometime (even though it's cold out) for a little winter mini-meet somewhere warm.........

Ya my previous car (99 Maxima ES) was crazy done up (running 14.2@96MPH....and N/A) with 17's, and a crazy system in the trunk. I bought most of my stuff through this store (Lethal Rides) and over time got to know the owners (Dwayne and Jack) very well, and then became kind of friends. After a while last summer when Import Fest was on, they asked me if I wanted to put my car in that show, free of charge........I said ya for sure, and then it just turned into a sponsership thing, where I basically get parts at cost and get special deals and what not. Hopefully I can hook you guys up with some pretty good deals on parts too.....anyways talk to ya'll soon,

Brad

stupid question... but does ur maxima have like 10 screens in it? with playstation 2 and stuff

98323IS
12-14-2002, 03:19 AM
No it had two earthquake balls 15" subs, in a complete custom box, a memphis audio 1500 watt amp, a rockford fosgate cap, an optima dry cell battery, a double din JVC deck, and rockford fosgate top of the line speakers/tweeters. The thing was insane........my back window seals were starting to peel away/come loose when I sold the car because it was so loud that when I turned it up, the back two windows and the back window actually flexed.......it was LOUD, and amazing sound quality as well. But to answer your question no it didn't have any tv's in it.....though that would have been cool!!! I also had the stillen body kit on there. It was pretty cool because you don't see too many done up maxima's out there, so she got looks everywhere she went........i'll see if I can find a pic of it......although I never got picks of the system, just the old one with 2 12's that i had.

Welcome...nice ride
I like the clean look, I think it looks a bit low in the front compared to the rest of the car, maybe side skirts would help.
just my .02

Ya I am puttin in a stereo system in the summer, so that will balance the back end/front end. It is not really that off at all, but the driveway where we took the pics, was slanted. I am also getting side skirts too.........she should look/sound really good in the summer!!

12-23-2002, 07:46 PM
Welcome to max. I like the front valence - my .02 but my back end looks lower than the front - I need some balance in my life. PM me with the details of the lip and $$$$. I really like it
