Finally decided to post pictures of my motor.<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:eek:ffice" /><o:p></o:p>

I bought it just after New Year?s Day. I was undecided on what to buy as I had sold my Clio 172sport & had been using my old jobs company motors to get me about. I did land up buy an mk2 Gti 16v for ?200 which I did think about stripping & putting a 1.8T lump in it. But I thought it would take me to long to do so sold it on. <o:p></o:p>

Then I was flicking through the papers & I found this 1.8T for sale, so I popped out saw it & bought it.<o:p></o:p>

Yeah that was me. It's a great mod.  I fitted it last week, I couldn't get the airbag off at first but done it straight away next time I tried.  Cheers for the advice.

What a great nick car! To find one that modded already (or did you do it yourself?) was very lucky.

Nice Anni boot spoiler would be cool.

Irish, wish it was all done when i found it spent the last three months doing all these bits to it. But it kept me busy between soughting out a new job/bussiness. [:D]

Look's mega Nice mate... [Y][Y][Y][Y] You should be well pleased...

You have done some serious mods to your car in such short time..

Have you had your car re mapped yet?

The next mods you are planning (Milltek 100 Cell Cat - Samco Tips - Induction Kit), are well worth getting. They will give more power and make your car run smoothly.

I did not realise that you had a Sharon Badge ! was it easy to fit and did you colour code it?

Did The Sat Nav come with the car or is this also a mod?

I have been considering retro fitting Sat Nav, but I'm not to sure about the cost involved. Yours looks really good.

Keep up the good work Dan [:D]

Woah [H] for that interior! Looking very nice mate! If your gonna keep the car for a while maybe get the anni kit to really finish off an impresive list of mods?

How do you find tyre wear with the coilovers on, did u have a full suspension re-alignment or just the tracking checked when you fitted them?

You've got the interior that i want, the interior on your car is superb
mate, The cream leathers look mint. Your alloys are rather nice aswell.
Has your car been lowered??

I think he has lowered it quite a lot on FK Coilovers, as the arch's meet the tyres and the car sits really well on them

the car looks great. [Y] for a great choice of mods. Impressive photo's too, what camera may i ask?

I personally think the 4 motion front valance is a little too busy, the anni valance would IMO look better, and would be a great addition to the car. I assume you would have to keep the original rear valance due to the pipes, but it would look very good colour coded.

Keep up the good work.
