Well some of you are close!

I have changed the wheels for some chrome, 3 spoke alloys, have painted the front grille mesh purple, debadged and re-badged with 'try it' and put a muffler system on the exhaust, you can here me from up to a mile away [Y]

LOL at Mike!

Anyway, heres some pics, now all it needs is a damn good wash.

What I have actually done is:
- Debadged the whole back
- Put the new alloys on and cleaned up the brakes while I was at it
- Had the grill off and if I take the V5 off it will wreck the mesh, so left it for now
- Put a stubby aerial on
- Changed the plates, breaking a plastic screw at the same time which meant I had to drill it out!
- Installed the W8 light

Richard leaving the Tarox stuff on the golf, even more of a bargain for whoever buys it as they are brand new, but too much hassle for me to change over!

Let me know what you think chaps, and what's next!?

Wow.. what a difference. Much, much better Graham. Looks so much cleaner and less fussy [Y]

How about some 18's and a small drop ?

Thanks for the comments,

Tyle, they are 18's and it is already dropped by 30mm, I can't go any lower as I'm already scraping stuff, though the 18's increased the height everso slightly.

Was going to go for all dancing number plates, but decided as I was going to clean it up anyway I may aswell leave the plates as clean as possible, so didnt do no borders, extra writing or logos!

And heres the front now I have completed it.

I do need inspiration now though. I'm thinking those scoop type vents? I would love to paint the mesh black also, so will get round to that maybe next weekend.

The only problem I do have now is that no one will get the numberplate. I.e. I had 2 V5 badges on the car before, with the V5 plate, now, I have nothing to indicate what the plate stands for! However, on the plus side, people will probably be wondering what the car is!

So, anything else I can do to it people to complement it? Any ideas and suggestions welcome

I like the caravan thing, lol!

Are you serious about changing the grille back to stock though? Seems a bit dramatic! Especially as people seem to be changing theirs from stock to these or oettinger ones!
