Ive had the car around 6 months now and took some pictures of it the other week as the weather was good!

Done a few bits to it since ive had it, but mainly want to keep it tidy!

Mods include, pipercross viper and a scorpion backbox, thats all for the engine. Must admit it does go very well and has suprised a few people! Was side by side the other day, with a mate who has a Clio 172

Brakes have been upgraded with EBC Turbo groove front and rear discs, Ferodo pads all round and Goodridge brake lines all round.

Also had it lowered in december on Bilstein B6 Shocks with -40mm Apex front springs and torsion bar lowered one notch which makes it drive brilliantly and isnt too low for what i use it for!

Also tidied bits up, with new floor mats, few clips where missing and a rubber seal on the drivers side!

All thats left to do is get some decent tyres, do a few track days and just enjoy the car!

Comments welcome, good or bad

Got a new camera at Chrismas so just learning how to use it!
Excuse the first few pics as i forgot to shut the bonnet properly lol

lowered via notches on the rear
i'd be careful as lowering by notches is done by whacking the trailing arms off, then they break rather quickly afterwards

the correct way is removing the end caps, pulling the torsion bars out then moving them up/down to the right hight then re inserting the bars


however, lovely looking car mate

Lovely car mate quite rare in that colour aswell i think. You can get hell of a lot of car for the money with these.

Awesome fella.

Nice to see youve put some decent shocks on with a sensible drop. The amount of these I see these days that have been completed slammed ffs.. talk about ruining an already brilliant chassis.

rallye has a 5 speed box.
lowering by notches is such a cowboy way to do it as well. cheap for now but when the beam fails it'll cost you 300+ to fix it.
other than that it looks good, my mates got a black one and theyre quick! bastard to do any work on though, done his clutch for him this week and it took a couple of days! could do my saxo in 3 hours

Rallye has 6 speed box exact same as a Gti6 mate , only differance between them is the rallye has no air con no elec windows no leather .. And has some cool wee stickers on the outside and no front fog lights . Do agree though hardly any room to work on these , just fitted my group n mounts the other day pretty easy job and what a differance it has made

M Sutton - Fantastic looking car mate , just plain and simple with decent mods .. also have just bought me second Gti6 another Blaze Yellow one .. Are you a member over on 306gti6.com ? few nice charged ones over there especially the Lynx 420bhp Demo car! to name one .
