    Ever thought about getting coil overs and getting rid of the stock control arms?
    I'm guessing coil overs from the UK will fit?

    Good to remember that they made those great turbo cars for continental Europe too, with the steering wheel on the correct (left) side.

    I guess it will be expensive to import one, unless a guy is in the military and posted over there. Do they still bring back your car for you? Or is that a bygone perk?
