got given this as my first car a year ago, got given it standard other than some god awful chrome lexus lights and some cheap 7 spoke halfords alloys, never got any pics of them. since then its had some tlc, a new water pump and timing belt. 5 spoke sport wheels and standard rear lights. bought a ripspeed air filter not too long ago along with the wheels you can see now and the standard rear lights. had to replace the rear bumper after a lovely lady decided she wanted to be in my car rather than hers and this is how it looks now. and yes i do have depos on order from Adam D

EDIT: i managed to dig up a few photos of before the modding started properly.

when i first got it, (apologires for the darkness)



now with the HUGE exhaust haha



can see some of the crash damage here



treated the bumper tops and added the new wheels

Right, not updated in a while. Just got my splitter sorted this morning will be fitting it soon. But right now I have a bigger problem to deal with, a few days ago I got pulled over by a copper with nothing to do, started questioning me on whether my mods are declared with my insurance company. Obviously with me paying nearly 1000 a year. They are not. So now I have to strip it to standard before he comes round to mine on Wednesday to check. If it is standard I get off ok. If its not, the car is seized. Bloody stupid law. Anyway, I'm going to be calling Adrian flux on Monday to see if they can help with declared mods, any other companies I should look into. So, rant over I have a long list of parts on their way to me for when I get this sorted. If I can't get the insurance sorted yet then I will have to wait until July when my current insurance expires and I get a second year of no claims bonus. Will get pics of the splitter and a parts list later today. That's all for now.
