Tasmanian W201

Hey fellas,

Name is Jamie, from that little island called Tasmania just below Australia (no, not a part of New Zealand, thats for you yanks :P ).

Daily driver is a W201 190E, with the 1.8L 8v 4cyc, BOSCH KE-Jetronic, factory 5 speed manual, with a nice not so factory euro style custom exhaust system, and a few little engine tweaks.

Waiting to get the money up to do a complete engine swap (m103 3.0L 6cyc possibly?), as well as suspension and brake upgrades, and replace the open diff with an ASD or maybe a 1.5 way LSD or a torque converter such as a Torsen style.

Currently going through the process of replacing the factory sound system, with a mix of FLI 6" and 4" speakers, Pioneer head unit and Kenwood amp + 12" sub which, when I get the woodworks shop ready will come out of its trunk box and go into a band tube box with the tube coming up behind the first aid kit, or replacing the first aid kit completely.
