its getting there mate, once that black stuff is off the fuel flap it will be much better.
With audio your money shows, I would recommend saving up a bit more and buy a quality sub/amp package from an internet site like bassjunkies or caraudiosecurity. you will get a much better deal than the overpriced rubbish that halfrauds stock. You will only be disappointed with it and have to upgrade it very quickly.

Remove seat covers, tints, kenwood sticker, sidestrips & rear wiper.

Get Depos, new suspension & a set of half decent alloys then you'll have it looking cool
