New black 147 GTA Monza Edition #100/100!

I won't go into the detail of what was the lead up - as we have all been there in one form or another... But let's just say I sold my TT just in time before the dreaded dealer trade-in.

But as you all may or may not know, they have stop producing the 147 GTA in it's current form - here in Australia, they re-badged the last 100 & called it the Monza edition (this included, Leather & Xenons - but they still charged for IT) - each one was numbered from 1 - 100 (a plaque on the glove box with Monza #?/100... Duh!

Anyway, I now am the owner of a black 147 GTA #100/100...

& so the MODS game has begun (well, I have been reading a lot of the previous posts to get ready for the day to actually start talking etc). Also, I will not be doing any track days just enhancements for the pub & beer talk factor...

I was originally going to go the following stages:
1. KW Coilovers & Over front strut brace
2. Performance exhaust (2 pipe but quad pipe would be special) & airbox
3. Any then cosmetic stuff - carbon fibre etc.

But after driving around our $hit road for the last few days - I don't need a stiffer ride (would love to reduce the wheel gap - but not sacrific ride comfort) as I went through that with my previous TT... My HandBrake (girlfriend) was not a fan... Though the front strut will be a definite.

As for exhausts - we only have the below available in Australia (feed-back please), I would prefer a burble to a race pitch if that makes sense - I ride a motor-bike so I am used to hearing & feeling...
1. SuperSprint
2. Remus
3. MilleMiglia (these are a local brew, though sound Italian)
All roughly the same $$$

Look forward to reading & thank you for all your help in advance.

Won't post any pics as we all know how good the GTA looks (also bandwidth aware) - but will do when significant MODS are completed.


"It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate rememberance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle." Ernest Hemingway

Hi Crashwong.

I seem to have forgotten how good a 147 GTA looks. Could you please post some pictures of yours to remind me?
