Title: Bora 1.8T
Post by: gjroe78 on 23 June 2011, 13:30
Right, so i went down to Swindon on Wednesday(22nd June) and bought(stole) Billy_VW's Bora 1.8T

As people will know it's a 2002 VW Bora 1.8T Sport, it's been remapped to 213bhp/241lbs torque by R-Tech, a Recaro interior put in it, Monty 2 alloys fitted, Induction kit and dump valve fitted and a rear spoiler too.

So my plans for it so far are:
Net Optic trim(to replace wood trim)
Gear Knob
De-badge rear
18" Alloys & Tyres
Lowered Springs
Aero wipers
and maybe change the front and rear valance for 4motion ones
and a new rear exhaust

All these will be done when funds permit  :laugh:

Sweet base car, at least you got some engine mods already.

Like the colour but I'm personally not a fan of the spoiler, just my opinion though

The red lib really doesn't do it an favours  :undecided:

I think that sort of shiney bright blue needs silver wheels.

I actually really like these alloys on your car mate, the contrast of colours is great. I reckon when it's on coillies you won't wanna take re alloys off :D
