bit more of an update now.

the engine is fully run in and had an oil and filter change yesterday. had my first "race" as such against a mk4 golf 4motion, it was pretty even till i got scared and gave up :lol:

while i was changing the oil i gave it a wipe down underneath as shes been in the rain a couple of times! luckily the only thing that was a bit dirty was the exhaust so that got a wipe and clean up along with the suspension as thats yellow :lol:

couple of pics from work on the ramp

Image

Image

then i took her to Sams after work and gave her a wash ready for a meet, turned out as so

Image

the plate was taken off to show a mate what lies behind it :)

also popped to brands hatch the other day and made a new friend who showed me around this :D terry and sam will know who i mean too :lol:

Image

Image

the front end is how i would like mine to look soon but i want fogs still attached and my number plate off to one side :)

which brings me to the last part of the update....... new plates :D there only show plates though not actual private plates :)

Image

Image

let me know what you think :)

Such a lovely motor as said before and glad it's got a good home where the owner is going to look after it :thumbsup: :chill:

IMO keep it as it is maybe change wheels but I would keep it looking as standard as possible and maybe a few under bonnet mods eg.t3 and plenty of chrome or carbon :thumbsup:

Thanks guys. Cleaisness will be kept on top of :thumbsup:

I'm running with a few ideas. Unsure whether to leave it as it is. Or go for a side mounted plate and chop the front a bit. Not much but something subtle that people will think is standard :?

Also I'm pretty certain what wheels I'd like on there :D

Part of me wants that car, but I wouldn't know what to do with it.

Cheers Dave. Means a lot man :chill:

Unless I can find a bumper that's already been cut and painted to how I want I'll be keeping the standard one for now as I don't want to cut it if I can help it 8-)

Wheels front I'm feeling a set of S1 alloys diamond cut just to be different :D

Also on a side note I've been starting to tally up a kill list. Best so far is a mk4 golf 4motion 2.8 V6 :devil: he was a bit surprised when I was keeping level and looked really upset afterwards :lol:

If it were me I would keep the front end standard looking mate, I would only mod it if I had to fit a FMIC for a T3

They do look good with the offset plate tho 8-)

Loving the wheel idea, would look lush on some diamond cut S1's :chill:

And nice one with the golf, should have bought a Ford :lol:

Like I said unless I can find a bumper that's had the work done already I won't do it as I don't fancy cutting and blending my current bumper :lol:

Offset plate will be done if I can get a cut bumper so for now it's just a scaled down plate in the original place 8-)

Thanks mate. Me and sam thought long and hard about what'll look good but also a break from the norm :D

Yeah I can't stand golfs to be honest. :chill:

Also had a play on my way home from a meet last night with a cooper S :wack: not racing literally just enjoying the back roads. God I love having an RS :lol:
