What came in the Post Today?

Question

This is an idea I've stolen from another forum I used to use...

Rules are-

-If you've received something interesting for your Celica (be it big, or small) you post up an image. If it's obvious enough then there's no need for a description, or you could get people guessing...even just from the packaging if you so wish.

-Post up what you paid for it. This could be a bargain or RRP if you bought new or from auction, it helps indicate to other users the sort of price of things they may also wish to buy...

-Post up where you bought it from

To summarise- Pic, Price, Where?

I'll get the ball rolling (this just got delivered)...

in a nutshell .......yes.

outside a nutshell.............

Since lowering a car changes the spring rate and height of the car, lowering springs are categorised according to the spring rate, which is the amount of force or load it takes to compress a spring a certain distance. The higher the spring rate, the stiffer the spring is.

The two main types of lowering springs are the progressive rate springs and the linear rate springs. With progressive rate springs, the top and bottom coils have a bigger gap than the coils in the middle of the spring. The spring rate varies depending on the distance travelled, with the spring getting stiffer the more it is used, thus creating a comfortable ride. Progressive rate springs cost a lot more than linear rate springs; they are ideal for drivers who want buckets of aesthetic appeal and a smoother ride. Linear, standard, or specific rate springs have coils that are evenly spaced apart. There is no change to the spring rate no matter the distance one travels, thus the ride can get bumpy. Linear rate springs are less expensive than the progressive rate ones, and are for cars whose drivers prefer a better-quality lowering of the car and performance over looks.

 

Those Eibachs looks evenly spaced to me..... ?

This arrived... Not quite what I was expecting compared to the (obviously generic) stock photo, but...

Came with a Ram air flex pipe thing that I have no idea where to put. Hope to fit it Saturday but it looks a bit cheap, if I am honest :/

My Conditional Offer of Fixed Penalty that I had been waiting on.

 

Not as bad as I had feared, 3 points and £100 fine.

 

Which, considering the new rules, I will take without arguing.

i got one of these back in 2014 and i was doing 36 in a 30 zone ...

 

I'd feel a bit hard done by for that. :/

I was doing 56 in a 40. OK it was 1:46am on a weekday and on a dual carriage way but still, I don't have much of an excuse (well, any excuse, tbh) so I feel pretty lucky.

Sticker is not straight on the old one and looks as though it will disintegrate if I try and move it. Got a better one for when peeps take sneaky peeps!

 

OK Tomb?

Some genuine from Japan, some replica's from UK

Both arrived the same day although ordered a fortnight apart.

 

Not sure if I will use the Rays Engineerins ones or not yet.
