There is also a full spec list in the thread... lots of work, lots of time... he would really appreciate the recognition I think as he doesnt really advertise the work much.

I think the car speaks for itself.[:D]

Absolutely love it [:)] But where is the height adjustment lever on the side of his Recaros?!? Looks like Passenger and drivers seats are the wrong way round? What about the side airbags?

Aha... who didnt read the spec list in the other thread carfully enough!![;)][:p][:D]

He has removed the height adjustment lever and the lumbar support knob. replace the covering with that off a 1.4 E with no height adjustment. To declutter. It has also meant that the seat sits a little lower, which is something I crave... even at the lowest setting I feel high in the car even though my car is low!![:D]

As I have said before that is one nice Bora with them CSL wheels, just
one thing though, doesn't it look a bit odd with the BMW badge on the
wheels?? why dont he get some VW badges made or BBS badges made.

He has purposely left the BMW roundel in... he likes the 'wrongness' of it. He feels, its a BMW wheel, why pretend its anything else. The simple fact is you CANT get these genuine wheels for anything else. Not even from BBS....

I kinda see his logic, but personally I would go with the VW roundel.[;)]

LOL - i'll take that for what I think you really feel!!! [:p][:D]

I like that a lot! Like what he's done inside with the green! That's certainly unique!
[:D][Y]... that was one of the most time cosuming and difficult tasks... had to detach that insert, which is plastic tacked in, then after plastic resin coating and spraying, re-attach.[:|]

Evilhomer, what does your mate do about his front number plate seeing as he has not fitting one to the bumper.

Does he just have his plate on the dash in the front window?

He's not been using it. At the moment its just sat on his drive. I would imgaine he would just put it on his dash and if he got pulled, just stick a trimmed down number plate below the rubbing strip.[:D]
