    Hi all, living in the UK with a 2003 GT is great but hard to get parts without paying rip-off prices. So, anyway I get to the US between 2 and 4 times a year and always bring back a few goodies.

    This trip I plan to bring back lowering springs and maybe a cat-back Borla.

    Can anyone show me their lowered GT on standard rims please?

    Can anyone tell me if any of the Borla's come with the main pipe (cat to axle) in 2 pieces so that they fit in a suitcase?

    Alternatively anyone with a US store (ebay or general) that's prepared to ship to the UK also please shout up!

    Thanks greatly in advance!!

    Andy

    Im sure the springs will fit a suitcase, ...the exhaust will be a challenge.

    Hey be sure to post up some cool UK location pics with the car!

    I have a new edge borla catback on my car and I think you'll be hard pressed to fit it in any sort of suitcase.

    I thin you would be hard pressed to fit any exhaust system is a suitcase. Mufflers yes.
    IMO, the rest of the catbacks are about the same for all the brands. The main differences would be the exhaust tips.
    Have you looked into having a local muffler shop fab up your 2 1/2"catback and weld in your Borla mufflers and the tips of your choice.
