thanks mate worked hard for the car but pays off just driving it around a little ..the laws are good here but the cops are all over you straight away if you are a P plater with turbo luckily whole exhaust and turbo is stock ..would anyone know a free flowing exhaust that is still quiet?

Nice first car. Your first real car (esp at your age) is a very memorable event. Enjoy it, but sensible/mature about it.

Someone smashed your car but all the damage is to the front?

You were either too close to the next car, doing skids and totally fucked up or someone veered across into you from the opposite direction - it's very difficult to believe that someone else did that...
