Had her two weeks. Already FK Highsports, dropped on her ass.

New front and rear lamps (FK)

(Sorry Baker I got too good a deal on them at ?165 all in for both front and rear... and to boot the quality is also excellent))

VR6 Chin Spoiler

De-arched

De-badged

Rubbing strips still off, because I havnt got the VR6 full painted ones, painted yet!! (Waiting for the JOM debadged grille to arrive)

Planned:

RIMS!!!!! 16 x 7's with 195/40 rubber. nice wideboy stretched euro look. choice of Mk4 standard rims, porsche 928's, design 90's or have also been tempted with the odd 17" rim like the TT competition, or The BBS RX.

Body coloured, and smoothed bumpers (Removing indicator/fog unit)

Twin 76mm round exhaust (Damn supersprint for discontinuing theirs!! they only do twin 90mm chav option now!!)

Tint

Some decent ICE, front seats, rear headrests and a leather retrim would be nice too, but she did come with NO sunroof, and AIRCON which are both awesome...

She aint my 4mo, but I like her all the same.

Always fansied a mk3 vr6 highline I much prefer the colors offered in
the mk3, TBH the 16v was VERY underated due to its Vr6 big brother, the
16 is as quick as a vr6 surprisingly.

It all starts again or have you a budget for this one LOL

Great minds think alike eh!!? Always fancied a VR6 Highline myself too and indeed before I bought the 4mo, I had test driven a dragon green VR6. Very nice, but VERY nose heavy. Thing that put me off this time around, was the fuel economy to be honest, as I know it is actually WORSE than the 4mo!!! And in nearly every way the 16V is as good, certainly normal acceleration. Of course it doesnt quite have the any gear torquey range that the 6 pots have, but pulls hard nonetheless.

SOOOOO much better since I changed the suspension, and if i'm honest the ride is better, MUCH more compliant than the 4mo, plus btter clearance (mind you there is still 30mm to play with all round!!!)

As for a budget... never have, nor probably never will know the meaning of the word!!! Just keep going till i'm happy, but I cant touch my house deposit money!!!

lol

If anyone knows of some decent 16" rims going let me know preferbaly mk4 or TT 5 x 100 fitment with around a 30 - 35mm offset, or alternatively any 5x112 with at least a 45mm offset to squeeze in adaptors. Let me know!! (Dont want to spend more than around ?250 on rims alone (have a specific tyre size I intend to use)

Looking good! I'm not a green fan - i'm more blue funnily enough [;)]
but i did look at a dragon green rado before i bough the bora.

If i can source some TT comps at the right price would you be
interested in my BBS RX2's? They have pretty much brand new Pilot
Primacys on.

Lovely mate, very similar look at the front to how mine will be, and how my old mk3 cl looked. Love the BBS RC's bet they cost a bomb!!! looks like a nice leather interior too!!! Have you any more pics?

Cheers, Evil
