like the front and the rims not a fan of the back at all mate, but im not a fan of my back end on the bolf so know how things take time to change, also i guess you may like the rear bumper, all to their own i guess

I got the infil from Awesome for ? 70 plus VAT. possibley get it cheaper try ebay, but there local to me and it was just more convienient to get it from there.

The f/bumper was also from Awesome....the R-line one.

fantastic!! great stuff on the SWG mirrors.. i gots a pair on too! lol

im also looking to drop a lump in mine aswell too

how much work was the 2.0T transplant and costwise, what are we looking at?
All I will say is, make sure the engine is running when you find one

PSi, who did mine had a major headache as they couldn't get the immobiliser off due to the fact that the clocks didn't match the car and went through about 4 sets of keys to get this sorted.

As far as I'm aware I think its easy enough to get in, but I think the wiring was a bit tricky. TBH, I'd have a word with them as I definately would have had no idea where to start.

As for costs, hmmm, A few grand and some is my only comment [:O] but I was prepared to pay these costs as I'm no mechanic.
