Hi all, just wanted to post up some updated pics of my ride, here is a list of what`s done so far and a some bits to come.

18" titanium fox evo`s 40mm H&R springs, kamei grill, aero wiper,
tints all round (graduation), mp3 h/u + 1000kw jbl sub and amp setup in
boot, Scorpion S/S backbox wih r32 bracket, debadged, fk rear lights.

bits to do : stubby aerial, flush tailgate, shocks (not sure which ones
to go for?), Lights - thinking of going for hella celis setup / or
smoked fk ones but not liking the orangey glow they give off?, K&n
induction kit - not sure - 57i or typhoon?, drilled grooved/discs and
pads, leather s/wheel, thats about it for now!

pics arent the best as they were taken by my phone, and it was getting dark.

all comments welcome!

anyone else recommend any decent mods I can do? Hella Celis upgrade is looking very tempting, aswell as lower fog lights,

also what would be the best setup to use for suspension - want the looks aswell as the ride [:|]

cheers mate, I use a range of products, AG shampoo and rinse for washing which
helps in getting rid of most of the weekly muck, then a quick rinse and a
application of AG Auto gloss rinse (cheers jace!), blade/leather of any excess
water, for wheels I use AG clean wheels as it get rids of the brake dust/grime off
pretty well, I go around each wheels individually and pressure wash off any remaining
dirt. Then weather depending I usually apply a coating of wax/polish onto
bodywork ranging from Mer polish, AG deep resin, Megs NXT spray wax/polish,
also use megs gel for tyres, AG glass polish for windows, and AG bumper gel for
all rubber strips. I usually clean her every week, even though I get some weird
looks in this weather, esp when i`m spraying the car with a plant sprayer (AGR) in the freezing cold lol! [:p]

But is def worth it in the end, cant wait till the summer to
have some full on cleaning sessions and hopefully get to try out some new products in
time before show season [H]

That's one well looked after motor Chang, and what a difference the wheels make [Y] I remember checking out your car at the Slough meet last year, good stuff.

Are you sure its down on 40mm springs??, it looks more like 30mm to me??, are the rims 18"?.

Looks way smart though, good work.

Now that is a very nicely modded car, those wheels looks like CTR ones, still look good on your car though. It was a shock to see what the car looked like standard. What engine is it?
