    So in the true fashion of keeping the history alive for a superb example of an S197 and to show off its future here in the UK, I am going to update this thread with details of the Grabber Boss 302 GT Premium that was imported to the UK in 2015.

    The car was once owned by the S197 forum member 'Grabber 5.sl0w'.

    Nice car man . How do you find driving sat on the wrong side of the car? I still struggle with it sometimes.

    No problem at all, was odd at first but after about a week it feels normal.

    Ordered the following parts, to be installed in the next month.
    • Metra 99-5839CH audio fascia
    • Pioneer AVIC-Z10DAB double din unit
    • Rear OEM colour matched parking sensors
    • Rear parking camera
    • Thinkware F770 front camera
    Eyeing up a new steering rack from a Shelby. Before purchasing I need to asses the movement/ knock in the current rack to see if a replacement is 100% required.

    The difference of quality over the Shaker is incredible. I’m really pleased with the install.

    S550 style HID lights installed. Tricky locating a position for the ballasts. Really pleased with the result.

    Planning on finishing the wiring and switches for Halos and Demon eyes next weekend.
