Evenin all!

i went up to wakefield and swapped wheels with Pat last nite. (very random) painted them last nite and tnite in halfords satin black. i feel like the cars coming together now, i was gonna stick with mi 4mo valance just to be a bit different but i think it needs an anni one really so i ordered one from oem parts.

Got my frontmount on now and car made 230whp at awesome on sat (great day btw). performance feels lovely.

Anyway, sorry for the aweful photos but i just took them and i'm cold and wanna go to bed.

all opinions welcome, let me know what ya think.

cheers

James

oh yeah, the next project is the brakes, i've got the calipers (996 C2) but i'm not sure what brackets i need. i heard a rumour LCR bracket will fit?? i need advice i think? i want to run 312mm discs. cheers

That looks really smart.

Bet it goes well too!

Gotta ask, how much weight have you saved by stripping it and how much difference does that make to the performance???

thanks for the comments,

reckon i've saved about 120kg in total. still need to weight the car though. it made a hell of a difference to performance, like gaining 15bhp? ish.

Looks great! White is such a rare colour on the mk4 and yet I think it really works. Love the rims in black too[;)]
