Thought i'd start a thread about my first car! Itsa 1.4 Orion GL that got bought off of someone on the West Sussex RSOC Forum for a bargain price ;)

Only got a couple of pictures at the moment and apologies for the sh*t phone quality camera pictures! :roll: will try get some more when she's back on the road!

After

Plans for the future (in no particular order):

-Lower it 40 or 60mm
-Paint steels gloss black (until i can afford some decent alloys
-Decent exhaust so it sounds nicer ;)
-Saph Spoiler
-Fit a sub and my 6 x 9s
-Sort the paint peel on the bonnet
-Replace the rear bumpers.

Tried my mates RS 4 Spokes on for a laugh and got this...

Image

Anyway that's all for now ;)

Love it, get an rs turbo for it and recaro interior.

I have seen mondeo si alloys and even the 15" gti wheels on these and they suite it very well, especialy when lowered.
