Just spent all morning washing the car and have claybar'd and even done phase one of the polishing....then disaster strikes....thunder and lightening!!

However I did manage to take a few snaps of my car and have posted them in photobucket...links below.

Can you tell someone just got a digital camera for their birthday??? Lol

SEE SONNY SDI'S POST BELOW FOR PICS!!! THANKS FOR SORTING THAT OUT FOR ME

thanks!

My next mod is defo a 4 bar fpr / ko3 turbo and performance cat and downpipe to complete the milltek exhaust. Once all this is on, will look to see if just going to get the revo code for the 4 bar upgrade or have a look at the new programs which have came out.

Cant really think of anything else i want to do to it after this? most of the mods are very subtle and ive tried to keep it from becoming a Chav car.....

Quite interested in getting the sounds in the car sorted, so will prob spend a bit of cash on that.

Mot and tax due in 2 months, so will need to wait and see how much those 2 will cost me![*-)]

Know exactly how you feel, I pop a vein in my forehead when that happens, makes me absolutely livid! Last month I went to Clean Image in Chelmsford to have Autoglym LifeShine applied, it looked stunning, then as I drove across to Cambridge via the A414, a bird dropped one on my windscreen... I swear if I had a shotgun there would be a hole in my windscreen!

thanks.... for the comments and thanks for sorting the pics so they show on the page rather than as links!!! They are pretty big pics...is there any way I can size them down a bit or is that down to the size of the pic i have taken?

the alloys are 18" rs6's. I had 17" tt alloys on it before but had wheel vibration problems. Thought It would be sorted by putting on new wheels (or at least thats the excuse i gave to the mrs when she found the receipt for them!)

The badges on the car were custom made by a screenprinters. They are Wolfsberg badges. You will see them on the engine cover, on the carmats and also on the rear....

See pic below for clearer view.....

yeah its different and thats what I like most about it.....

always on the lookout for ideas on what to mod next!

Was playing with the idea of having light tints applied, however cant be ar*ed with any problems from police etc so decided to leave it!

The police cant do nothing as long as the tints are within the legal
limit. Look at my tints they are the legal limit and not once been
pulled over yet, 'sonny touches wood' so don't worry about the police.

Who did the perforated leather trim. It looks spot on. Was it cloth before?
I know it was defo cloth before as I asked this when I bought the car, however Im not sure who done the re-trim, I'll check through the encyclopedia of receipts tonight to see if I can shed light on this....

Have to say, the seats were a big clincher on whether to buy this car or another I was looking at! They just look like the car should have came straight from the factory like that!

these pics really dont do the seats justice but you get the idea!!
