i thought about the mk5 bumper to make it look more factory made but the si bumper looks ok. Could do with a respray though as its full of scratches.

to be honest i dont know hoe low it is, its got the non adjustable spax on it so the ride is incredibly hard lol, im after some adjustable suspension just unsure which to go for thats gonna offer a reasonable ride but good handling.

iv tried some JML scratch remover that was goin cheap at the range, it shined it up but didnt get rid of the swirls or scratches, is there any that you recommend?

the only way you will get rid of most of them is to get someone machine it or buy a machine polisher with the correct pad and a quality polish applied

you could always try the poorboys SSR range of polishes by hand which give good results and then finish off with a good wax

Sounds like the spax kit I had, thought it was great.

I have some carplan stuff you can have as its no use for my car, will have to come and have a look at your car as I only live down the road.
