Get the badge off the boot!

Shall have a proper look at the meet - best colour for it for deffo mate

Just a quick tip - don't hang air fresheners off the indicator stalk like that - have seen so many VW's with fooked up trim there where the air fresheners have been up against them and literally melted the plastic

Roof bars?!

Bonnet bra may look alright - just be careful of not trapping moisture as it can cause havoc with the clearcoat

Coilies

right, updated finally.

had a thread in gc, once when it got low and another when i bought some new wheels.

Lowered the beginning of july on jamex coils and an eibach anti roll bar fitted

Pics when it was lowered









Then i decided i wanted new wheels. i had been looking at LM Reps and Lenso Eagles, but after looking on ebay i found a set of 18" BBS RCs for a bargain so made the trip up to Hook and got them fitted as soon as. Also temporarily removed the roofbars as they were killing the fuel economy













The dust caps have been on for two weeks without getting nicked!!!

Pretty happy with it at the moment but always thinking about whats next

List to come soon: (hopefully)

4motion front valance
R32 Steering wheel
New brakes
Joey modded headlights
HID's
20mm rear spacers
12mm front spacers
