I know everyone must be getting bored seeing my car all the time at meets or at shows, but I thought I would show some pictures (just a few). <?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:eek:ffice" /><o:p> </o:p>

It?s been 4 years that I have owned this car now and I still love driving it. I normally sell my cars after two years, but I can?t quite seem to sell it yet, unless the other half makes me?

Please let me know if there are any bits and bobs I can do to improve my car?<o:p></o:p>

Thanks Kev?

Mate the car looks class, simple!!

The best MKIV on here if you ask me and having been in it and seen how clean it is the pics don't do it justice!!

Who's is the sexy Bora in the background, LOL!!

As for improvements, Sat Nav and the Aluminium Interior Trim mate.

To finish it off is going to cost ya [:p]

R32 trim, R-line wheel, 42drafts pod and either a stewart warner or omori boost gauge.

Do you have headlight protectors of any sort? If not i'd sort some out sharpish the replacement headlights are an insane price!!

Extremely complete car though.

Kev,

Your car is just the best.. I just can't fault it in anyway. It is what I want my car to be, but I just somehow don't think it will match it. I absolutely love seeing it at every meet, it's just the dogs wobbly bits, it really is.

Those first three pictures are just amazing, really uber cool, imo anyway. I know I heard you talking about selling her on sunday, I think as you said you've had her for four years and you still love driving her, so I tink that says it all really ! Imo, it's the best car on here.

If you do.. I'll be first in the queue ! [;)]

Christ.. just read that back.. sounds well gushing doesn't it, it's not meant to be !

Looks mint mate. Looking forward to seeing her at a meet sometime soon. Definitely go for the brushed alu bits, I think they look great against leather.

Maybe get rid of the 'yolk' effect in the headlights with Silvatec/Silvervision bulbs?

Other than that, PERFECT. Best Mk4 ever in my opinion.Great balance of show and go.

You can't get rid of the "fried egg look" with the Xenons, they're like that because the glass is actually orange in those, whereas the standard MK4 sets just look orange due to the reflection from orange bulbs within the indicator housing! [;)]
