hey guyz/gurlz, hows it going?

I've been reading through the posts here and replying to a controversial topic or two, but have a few queries on abbreviations that you use. This may be really obvious, but WTF is BPU ???? I'm gathering it is some sort of measure for the amount of modification a car has, but what do you base this on and generally what is it........??? Also.........

* Do only Autos come with the Aerotop option? (jap spec)
* What is the lowest you guys have lowered the suspension on your cars (mkiv)?

Also wheels seem to cost a ridiculous amount of money over there, is that why no one seems to put on 19s? You can get your average chrome 18 here for about AU$2K (~US$1K) and 19s for about $1000 more..........

Anyway, I'd really appreciate your help............ :):):)

bpu= basic performance upgrades...go to www.mkiv.com to find out what it means...there you will find anything and everything you wanted to know.....and if you cant find it there, youcan def find it here....
auto's with an aerotop??? whats that?? i have an auto....i dont think us spec supras have those, probably would help if i knew what they were.
most people lower anywhere from 1-2 inches. these cars are already low as is, and with an aftermarket exhaust, it only makes things worse to lower your car. anything more than an eibach drop is too extreme imo and is asking for dented and scraped exhausts.
yes wheels here cost an arm and a leg, for 19 inchers, they cost an additional kidney too...but i think that aftermarket wheels are the single best way to make your supra look sweet. the reason why wheels are probably so cheap over there is b/c maybe they arent 18x9 and 18x10. 18x7 are usually around 1k...larger fitting wheels for the supra cost anywhere from 1500-5000. but if infact you can get some 18x9 and 18x10, let us kno where, im sure everyone here will be very grateful.
later

thanx heaps..........

ill check that site out......

aerotop is the roof that comes off......... like targa without the bar through the middle......

i'd never buy an auto though, just too much fun in a manual especially through the national parks and twisted rainforests in australia......... i used to have a wrx turbo but it costs too much to get lots of power out of them and the 4wd drive train eats gearboxes for lunch.........(especially if you have a decent clutch that doesn't slip much on 7000rpm launches)


thats why i'm going for a supra, skylines are getting too common here.....

thanx again.....

you must mean the targa top or sport roof, in which case i do have one....most supras here in the US have them.
