Your ST170 looks very clean by the way, and we need more pics!
Ok no probs in that, because a person gets used to the cars in you country so everything overseas seems strange haha! Yeah the turn signals in the grille looks a bit crappy..

I have Lamin X'd the rear lights so they are a bit darker but not black, & that looks very wicked!

Sorry to sound stupid dude but what is FI? Fuel Injection?
What mods you guys running to get about 200whp?

I am stock only with a K&N cone filter running 121.5 whp & 156 wnm
I know its not a lot but this is just an awesome car!

FI stand for Forced Induction. In other words, superchargers or much more commonly turbos.

As for the Euro bumpers like yours, my favorite part is more about the overhang than the design. I love my Svt style grill but when you compare them to you style grill, the overhang is much longer because of our crash requirements in the States. They make the car look pointed in the front compared to your sexy little stumps up front and in the back.

Oh duh hahaha! Yeah my one friend has a ST170 with a Rotex Supercharger on, standard internals & only boosting 0.4 bar & doing 145 wkw.

Yeah I was wondering why those bumpers of your guys are so pointed & much longer than ours.. thanks now I know.
