leads were 70 including gst,from performance parts takanini,ive bought thousands worth off them with the ute and other cars in the past.
The leads are awesome,took that slight miss i had out straight away.
just a prick to make up the dizzy ends yourself,comes with the crimping tool though.

^^ any good Aaron?

And Kelvin, those Toyos in 235 are $10 more per tyre at hyper, so $289http://www.hyper.co.nz/drive/tyres/s...&options=2210,

If you go here: http://www.hyper.co.nz/drive/tyres/ you can just punch in the tyre size your after and they'll show you what tyres they have in that size - Hyper have some pretty decent prices, and they seem to have sales at least once a week (I get their emails dailly), I'll most likely be seeing them when I can finally afford to put tyres on my 19's

cool as, I don't mind Bridgestones, I have a set of Potenza GIII's (now obsolete) on my VL and I've been quite happy with them (although oddly enough they have been on the car since I bought it so havent been able to compare them with other brands).

Kelvin I have a half-complete set of Calais chrome pieces:

I'm not 100% on which bits are which, as my old Calais was the only Calais I've actually gone and checked them out on (just to see which were which) so bear with me.

1) 101cm long straight x2 (possibly front doors?)
2) 142cm long straight x1 (rear bumper?)
3) 137cm long straight x1 (front bumper?)
4) 2 with curve at the end, one is longer than the other so 1 will be for the front one for the back (go on the bumper corners - I'm pretty sure they're both driver's side ones judging by the angled bit at the ends
5) 73cm long straight x1 (this one I'm prett sure goes on driver's side rear door - the 73cm is the combined length of the long piece and the short 13.5cm bit).
6) 30cm long straight (this is a front guard one but not 100% sure which side, my guess is driver's

I don't need any of it anymore, so PM me what your after (I'm assuming at least the front bumper one) and I'll check them out for you (some aren't in quite so good condition - eg a bit squashed/bent, some are missing the end caps etc).

cheers
Sam

not bad bit expensive for me lol , might go there anyway since from the sounds of it there reliable and possibly get spark plugs as well engines missing from time to time at around 2500rpm then evens out after 3000 so doing this might elimnate the problem as its a miracle it still works [ill show you the car oneday] lol
