I know theres loads but what the hell ha ha
Ive Had this car 3 years now it was my first car and was a black 1.4 sport V reg with 45000 on the clock so i bought it and it came with some horrific lexus lights at the back so they were ripped off and replaced with smoked standard lights it also came with gsi skirts and cobra alloys. A couple of months later i bought some 17 inch Wolfrace Octanes and fitted them i think it looked really good then i bought some 15 inch wolfrace octanes then i bought a 60 40 mm Jamex lowering kit i got told it was 40/40 but oh well so i fitted that and it looked awesome so then after that i started colour coding the car first was new back bumper then i coulour coded the back arches and boot lock, a couple of weeks after that i let my mate drive it and he crashed it ....... not badly but enough to wreck the front bumper so i bought a gsi bumper in whit and bought a black sport bumper i found a few days later ha ha had that all sprayed along with the front arches and there you go fully colour coded bar the bump strips. then someone crashed into it at work and totalled the front bumper after it was looking nice as well :@ :/ so i had the gsi bumper sprayed and fitted
One of the fist pics i have (after it had been bumped)

after it was lowered

colour coded front end



then when it got crashed into again :/

back end

Gsi front end


front grille fitted

New coilovers from LMF JOM coliovers

pressed plates

new engine with everything inc the struts

new alloys ceasaros



Rolling road day and it made 108 bhp at the flywheel quite impressed tbh after the rolling road day i fitted a de cat never got round to running it on the rollers again

new seats

custom exhaust de cat s/s centre box s/s and back box s/s

brakes ebc green stuff pads and discs (1.4)

V6 Brakes fitted


Old 1.4 out

welded front end

and then the engine in




so its pretty near being done now all i need to do is tidy bodywork up and then clean the icv as its not doing its job properlly :/ then i want to make it faster rempap?? or just save for a let maybe
