Well thought i should start a little thread to show the progress of my car as it evolves! This may be a slow moving thread as its my daily and mot of my money hould be spent on my beloved G40, however i cant seem to help but mod this too!

Started life as a stock estate with a little now on top...

A few weeks later after i came back off holiday i fitted my budget ebay coilovers (rebranded TA Tecnix)

Front fitted (fully wound down to aid fitting - Never did get round to winding them up a little..)

Rears fitted (again never did get round to winding them up a little)

Then fitted my free 4motion splitter when it had the cambelt an service done this through the week, and currently looks like this:

A few little bits to come like smoothed front rub strip, some wheels, decat, stainless exhaust, better intercooler, PD130 nozzles, 150 turbo and manifolds and a remap should do nicely lol. But i must remember im not spend money on it as its just my daily..... hahaha

Iain!

Cheers for the comments guys :)
Looks tough mate, and sounds like you've got some nice plans too.
Any problems with sump?

Looks sweet but can see some scrapage moments.
I've not had any issues with the sump yet, but I am used to running really low cars so I know the roads to avoid, an I just have to take care when I go to new places.

Ive only managed to scrap it over a curb and almost get stuck once so far, so all is good! I'm sure I'll have to raise it up a little when I fit mew wheels as they will sit further out, but we will see when the time comes.
oooh i love a G40, well i loved mine,

estate looks good, just needs some spacers on them rims, one of the few i've seen with alloys. usually they have steels and lots of dog hairs

Any ideas what they are? I'll post up the fronts tomorrow... Nothing special just a set of wheels i really like! Owned these since December last year bt only just got round to sorting them out lol.... Hopefully the first MK4 to run them, altho i have seen a Mk5 with them on... Little hint at what they might be. Also they are 18x8s :)

I like them a lot they will sweet

Are they Discovery Wheels?

I have been tempted by a couple of sets of Land Rover Wheels lately
Yes they are Range Rover 2/ Discovery wheels. Just got the centre caps to paint. Going to order my custom adaptors tomorrow, so should be on the car in just over a week :)

I think they will make the car look so much better when they are on!
