registered here a while back when i got a p/x for my car so might as well post up a readers ride thread as iv already started modifying lol.

spent my life on seatcupra.net with my project car - seat leon cupra r;





then as it got more and more expensive to run on petrol, had to duck out and get a golf. got a golf GT TDI PD130 which is not bad;



previous owner had some mods - tints, suspension, rims and these rear blacked out led lights;



first thing i did was debadge the car, and fit my alpine type x sound system in



please excuse the obligatory shisha box. I then got a full detail and valet done by a good family friend to get the paintwork up to scratch;





iv also ordered a set of 6000K HIDs and some LED side lights, then going for some minor touches like a uk-mkivs sticker and uv lights in the footwell.

after than il be looking some more small mods as i dont want to go all out. probably a decat done by a mate at a garage followed by a stage 1 remap. not too into diesel tuning so dont know what else is important besides an uprated clutch.

also considering a gti spoiler to set it off but not too sure about it yet.

if you're still awake, thanks for reading!

Thanks guys :)

Spotted a blak mk4 with the same rims as mine but bright orange. Made me think about having a different colour on the rims....something like red or whatever

heres the car beaming 6000K into the garage



and the sticker (for some reason it comes up orange on the pic, its meant to be red;

Have seen your leon in the flesh a couple of times, it was awsome!

Iif the standard of that was anything to go by this COULD be just as good if you do decide to go to town on it.

Looking good as it is though. General tidy up and its winner. But im sure you already know this.

thanks man :) spent a lot of time and effort on that one, i dont think i'll do the same on this mainly because of the mileage and the fact that i'll have the performance car itch soon lol.

this one will probably stay for a really long time as a day to day car so that train of thought could change, im already looking for a set of decent alloys for it lol. my creative juices are flowing :D

btw i love your front grill, might have to steal that idea possibly :p

HIDs are awesome! Top of the list on every car that i get.

Oh and i found my LED sidelights! was in the driver door car space thing lol. So i've stuck them on.

After I get the wheels refurbed I'm going to paint my break calipers red with the left over paint I've got from refurbing my previous cars brembos.
