Cheers guys...

Its a 110 gttdi on a T plate (Bought off the 'old dear'!). I've fitted a merc maf and lowered it by -35mm on Eibach springs. Also fitted an Alpine headunit and sub.

Marc, I had a mate fit the springs for a ton (?100) although I lended a hand cos it was taking a while to do!!

I'm def' planning to colour code the valances but cannot afford proper 4 motion ones so im thinking of getting some new standard ones and having a go at painting them myself. Does anyone know where I can get 'plastic bonder'(?) from?

Cheers, Robin

Sweet. change those side reps for silvery ones!

I wouldn't rush into coding the valences. Will look crap if they're done badly.

Bide your time and get a pro job if you must do it! Consider a spoiler instead!

I'm well pleased with just the springs 'smithjoe'!!

The shock-absorbers were recently replaced by my mum just before I bought the car (6 months ago) so I didn't want to spend un-neccesary money. The car was built in 1999 and the mileage now stands at 68,000. But the car still feels like new...

The improvment in handling is incredable... especially with the TT rims (cheers Glen). The merc maf has also made the car perform like my mums pd bora. Well pleased!! :)

I need a new maf for my 130, could someone please explain the difference between the vw one and the merc one? Any part numbers and prices would be good too. :)

Hi mate iam sure that the 4 motion valances are roughly the same price as the standard ones. thats what the dealer told me when i bought mine anyway!

cheers
