Default The Tit-Wagon and his Mini Adventures...

Well...'spose it's time for me to park in 'the garage' too...

The Tit-Wagon is:
An '05 DS/B MCS with [what's marketed in Oz as the] Chilli pack - climate, HK, black rubber mats, cordoba interior, driving lights and phone prep..

Mods:
Colour-coded aero kit
Eibach springs
Promini 15% pulley
MTH
Alta CAI
Alta gauge pod
Miltek Cat-back
17x7 inch Lenso RC-II (Advan RG-II copies) or Routecompany R90 fakies
Kumho Ecsta SPT 205/45/ZR17
Autometer boost and water temp gauges
Alpine IVA-D310 & iPod adapter
2 x Sparco Milano Alcantara
JCW Alcantara/Leather 'fatty' steering wheel
Whalen - plain lump-of-steel design!
Audi TT Shift boot
Tint
Polyurethane numberplates
Black M7 Strut brace
Nology Plug Wires
NGK BR7EIX plugs
Lots of stone chips...
and a home-made glove box organiser...

Mods that have come and gone..
18x7 inch Millie Miglia HT3's + Falken rubber
White Rear Lenses, brake light and rear fog
Alta 30mm lowering springs
Toyo Proxes4 205/45/ZR17 88W tyres
Sparco Evo2 bucket
Merc C-Class stubby antenna (Alpine HU can't tune a radio station to save it's life)

Plans: (fun-tickets pending...)
Got an obx header sitting here in front of me (magnaflow cat on order)
2% crank pulley
M7 aerogel header heat shield
Pull the back seats out & make a rear-seat delete....


this is what it looked like when I first got it (in the beautiful Watsons Bay, Sydney Harbour):

Looking good! Gotta love the DS/B. I wish I could switch my speedo and tach. It looks so sweet like that.

Not really by choice...I'm the proud hostage of a home loan...so that cramps the ol' style a bit.

Having said that, s-lites are pretty uncommon thanks to their unpopularity....Click the image to open in full size.

I don't think they look so bad...there are plans to relegate them to the corner of the garage, though...Click the image to open in full size.

BTW, the 18's came off becase the alta springs, combined with the 215/35/18 tyres made the ride horrific (Australian roads are third-world!!)...I sold the wheels and bought some eibachs....

I don't think I'll be going back to 18's....

I reckon this would be a good place to tell you guys about some of the Aussie events I got to....

Today we went to the annual German Autofest in Canberra....about 330 cars turned up - we had a small mini contingent there on the loose basis that the cars are owned by the kransky munchers... Really we just went because it makes us laugh that stacks of the old merc codgers mutter under their breath about us! haha....

They had a WV eos there too....pretty cool...

Anyway..here' the gallery...
