Hehe, cheers for the replys everyone, right the wheels i changed cos the renault ones are corroded(still have em and might refurb, cos i like too).
The grille is a marmite thing-like or hate, i really like it, looks better in the flesh. Gonna slam it soon, that is my next mod(at least 60mm ) then tints prob.
The engine is pretty much standard apart from silicone boost hoses, dump valve and scorpian system(have wound the boost in out a bit though )
Dont wanna do headgasket so not goin too mad wiv boost although may mod engine, see how funds go.
At the mo it prob weighs me in about 1250 or so, so reckon i have done ok, has been a bit of a mission getting it to this stage though(never again lol) Spray job cost me about 600.
Keep the comments coming

Looks kewl mate, really well done, I know a lad who started with pretty much the same as yours (but it had a trick engine (forged pistons etc and they were high/low compression )

His looks now had full gt tuning kit with loads of one off mods, sprayed pearlescent greeny colour, spent about 150 on it and it's worth a good few grand cos' it's minter, been talking to him about buying it
