due to popular demand... naa just kiddin.. following pics are some of the things ive done to the VX. please enjoy.

When i bough the car it was absolutly bog standard!



then after about 23 hours the radiator went pop.. typical eh! so it was in the garage for a couple of days till i could get a new one put in.. i went for a full ali motorsport radiator.




and since it was sat in the garage, unable to move i gave her a polish




and painted the calipers.



changed the bulbs coz the originals were just utter shite.




then i got the splitter slapped onto it.. its a seat leon cupra R splitter.. is there a car these dont fit!! and removed the V





then i figured out a way to attach the badge so i stuck that on pretty much the next day



got the new diffuser slapped onto the back end. makes a difference when cornering hard.







then finally today i bought some turbo side vents for 100 painted in anthracite.. very good quality paint job aswell!

anyway.. here is my day so far.!

got them home and took a pic to show reflection best i could.


wheel came off and wheel arch.


the thing im holding in my hand it the bit you have to cut off.


now this was the scary part, prising and ripping the plate off.


test fit.. all good.. little bit needed taking off the vent fo a flush fit.


still test fit, bt door shut


and that was it. some finished shots.






i am iching like a bastard now from all the fibreglass!!

all in all... good job i think

I think you should it suited it really well, but then again your right, it does look race like. Suppose it depends on the look your after. However it is a racing car is it not? lol, tough decision!

good stuff mate, did you see my thread on vx220.org about fitting the turbo vents to a 2.2 or did you just go at it like i did. bargain at 100 though paid more than double that for both of them
