    Default Paul's MR DC5R | Project Aesthetics | 01-ITR

    Hey everyone, name's Paul, and this is my daily driven '02 DC5R in Milano Red (Built in August '01).





    A lot of you will already know a lot about this car as she is a giant e-fame whore.

    Purchased her from a car yard in Auburn in June of 2008, and didn't get her until July. She came with only two modifications to the stock AUDM DC5R. She had lowering springs which has recently been identified by Ison Industries as Lovells and the rear seats were redone in a suede red to match the two Recaros at the front.

    Didn't do much to the car in the first year of owning the car, Castle Hill Exhausts put in a 2.5" catback and Tempe Tyres put on some Lenso GF-7's in Hyper Black & Polished Lip with a weak 18x7.5 +40. Before this, I had no idea about the JDM scene so I drove around with those for a good 3 years.

    Fast forward a few years after I met Alex, and got my shit together, Tessa is pretty much exactly how I envisioned her when I first bought her. I've tried to minimise purchasing of cheap replica parts and instead go with pricier branded parts.

    Sun exposure is starting to wear the back seats, and it's starting to turn orange, so I'm going to have to get them redone.
