And so the R32 conversion began!!!!

<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:eek:ffice" /><o:p></o:p>

About one week ago I had the R32 body kit (R32 front bumper, R32 rear bumper, 25th Anniversary sideskirts (because its a 4 door) and R32 spoiler) fitted!!! Along with an R32 Milltek system.<o:p></o:p>

Then the new highly polished diamond cut 18" RS4 Alloys arrived, with Goodyear Eagle F1 tyres (shame I had to wait more than a week again for one of the alloys to be replaced as it was damaged. Same company as I bought the first set off and had a damaged one. Shame their prices are so good otherwise I would never use them. i.e. Rochford Tyres)<o:p></o:p>

The front:
R32 bumper,
SEAT Leon Cupra R from splitter (modified to fit golf),
FK badgeless grill,
FK smoked angel eye headlights,
16V badge (not to everyone?s liking on here I am sure lol)

The Seat LCR splitter gives the car a great finishing touch, the best ever under ?20 mod. However, it makes the car very low (even lower than my dad 996 Turbo) so can be interesting over speed bumps when full! As I?m sure many of you already know!!

The rear:
R32 bumper,
R32 spoiler
Milltek R32 style full exhaust system,
Hella smoked tail-lights (fitted 2005) <o:p></o:p>

After having all the work done I must say the Milltek system has made a fair bit of difference as far as throttle response and torque is concerned, mainly noticeable in the higher gears. It is a great sound as well, fairly quiet in car (much better for long journeys, not so tiring) but sounds awesome from outside so I am told. Doesn't sound like a cheapy ?home-made? job, lol!!! It's about time I had someone to drive it for me so I can hear what it actually sounds like myself.<o:p></o:p>

<o:p></o:p>

Everyone was right about the Goodyear F1 tyres giving immense grip, they were worth the extra ?13 each over the Toyos I think (even though the Toyos are superb) the Goodyears are wicked in the wet!!!

looking good mate [Y] , but i`m pretty sure thats a kamei grill you got
on there and not the FK badgeless one, as that one looks like the
stock one but without the badge and has 2 lines instead of three? [:|]

Also get yourself a polo rear wiper, alot better compared to the stock one.

not sure about the 16v badge either, if your going for the "R32 styley"
get yourself a .:R32 badge and stick that on the grill, but each to
their own.....[:D]

Looking nice mate. Alloys look really well on it. Not too sure about the 16v badge, but like you say, it does give it a different look.

What about a black badge for the rear? Would suit that dark look (although to be fair, I really like the standard badge also!).

I am liking your styling mate and your motor is looking quality!!

The front end looks great but I reckon it would look even better de-badged like the rear end, loose the 16v badge and get people really thinking about what it is.

For a 1.6 it looks really phat!!
