right i sold the 2.0 16v mk3 golf as it was to thirsty for my 400+ miles a week

i looked for a corsa but for my money wasnt going to get a good 1.6 at all. i found this tigra went to have a look and fell in love

autotrader pic:


this is the second day i had it



Plans to start:
New pads
2x new front tyres
get cambelt and waterpump done
oilchange

and then...
spray wheels black
lower 40mm till i get a decent 60mm kit
sebring backbox

ill get pics of progress asap

Really nice car buddy, always liked the Tigra just something about them. Not all that many modded ones about too

Plans sound ace.

you know how someone did that corsa/tigra conversion, you could do the opposite corsa front end on a tigra

well i wanna get some 16" but while i do the cambelt etc i thought just spray the wheels quickly just to make it a bit diff

so off to get my temp wheels i borrowed


the reason i didnt keep them.....


14" softstars not a gd look on a tigra lol


lol but wheels are ready to go on tommrow so ill try get pics then



bought these off a member off here but they wont clip in and stay in place so thus useless so need to buy some more


then quickly sprayed this just to tidy up the bay. its a crap spray but its not a show car only my lil car not bothered tbh


more to come incl.
