i decided i wanted something a little different to my previous cars, something with potential that hasn't been done to death.

2 days later i was in posession of the banana. Fully standard, 2 lady owners with full skoda history, 77k etc etc.Now this may have seemed a wierd choice but i'm not one to buy something shit, already have plenty of plans and rest asured it will have as much time and effort spent on it as my previous cars.
so heres how it looked on autotrader









once it was home, paint renovated and pictures taken with a proper camera







and now its been lowered, wind deflectors,6k HIDS, Interior mats, Forge recirculation valve, Vrs an Octavia Badges removed off the rear,









Plans are for sme light smoke tints to finish the exterior. A decent Double din unit and speakers for interior and then focus on the power/stopping side of things, aim is for as near to 300bhp without going too crazy and keeping it reliable.

Replaced the piss poor paper speakers today, backs went in no worries but the front needed some persuasion to go past the bar that hold the window up, thankfully it was only an edge so i just bent it back a little and in we went,first impressions are they are much better than my previous JBLs and Alpines. at first i was a bit unsure and there isnt many reviews about them so in the end thought id try them for my self! couldn't reccommend them enough and i'm still only running them on the boggo headunit...for now, should have a double din JVC soon enough so they should sound even better! may amp them in the future still unsure.anyhow...pics











comparisons over old crap
