Alloys are one!

need to get side skirts now as looks a bit silly...

But good thing is that there is no catching or anything... clearance is great!

Right, I kinda decided to throw more money at this

Got to do some mechanical work first:
Brake pads {purchased}
New back box
Tracking

Then,
Gti Skirts
GTi spoileer {purchased}
splitter of some sort {purchased}
Remove bump strips
Wash :S {purchased}{dirty within 2 hour}
Remove rear wiper.
colour code door handles
Clear side repeaters
wind deflectors
lower it some more.

To be fair, that looks decent. I'd get smaller profile tyres though.

The fronts looks weird, like the wheel is far too big, smaller profile tyres would sort that I think.

Not sure yet, I am slowly changing my mind I think. Plans sound good. Start with a wash - that won't cost owt

Seem to have some reverse rake going on though which would bug me a bit if it was my car.

Rich i'd wash it, but we had rather poo weather for few weeks now and i'd be gutted to wash my car and get it dirty few hours later!
And is your opinion changing for the better then?

I rarely look at the car so not that bothered about front being highier than rear, but i need to lowerer it more soon...

I know your not being horrible but I can honestly say I'd drive the swift over that Fiesta every day of the week.

Went to scrapyard today to get som bits for mates Saxo, and just asked how much for 'Guna splitter - 10 quid...

So the result:


Only did a quick job at trying it on as it wa strating to piss down ( what a suprise) but i stood back i loved it!

Took a picture and i don't think it does the justice, so can't wait to get this fitted Properly! its a bit long at the sides so wouldnt clear the wheels ans stuck at the sides so will need some trimming when i get time to fit it!


very pleased!

If some one would be kind enough to photoshop this without the tape and sitting properly i'd be grateful

Some sort of debadged grill for the front and that would look pretty mean in your rear view mirror.

lol not with current engine it wont! cant catch any one up!i had no badge at the front but put one on!

also i figured out why front sits highier than rear!

springs were originally for gti whch has more weight at the front..

cheaper solutions is to get 40mm lowering springs for front.. or more fun solutions is Gti engine
