Bora 2.0 Sport - Nothing special really!
« on: 04 July 2010, 22:14 »
Yo guys, hope you're all well

Haven't been on the forum in ages as I now have a full time job and by the time I get home I'm too knackered to turn the laptop on!

As some of you know, I went over to the darkside, swapping my 1996 Mk3 Golf CL for a 2003 Saxo VTR. It was purely a money thing as I was bored of the Golf but knew I wouldn't get much for it, whereas the Saxo was worth in the region of £2000. After a week of driving the Saxo I was loving it, it handled well and went like a rocket but lacked German build quality and lacked space inside. I'm a big lad and therefore my knees touched the dash and head touched the roof - not comfortable at all. I waited until I got the V5 back and then it went up for sale. I had put a deposit down on my dads VR6 and then realised I really didn't want to go back to where I started (a 1996 Golf), so I changed my mind and told my dad I'd try and sell it for him instead.

A week later and I was the proud owner of my 12th car. A 2000 X reg Bora 2.0 Sport! It's not the fastest car on Earth but I'm happy with it and I can honestly say I have no intentions of getting rid of it. It has a few mods - 18" Merc wheels, 40mm lowering kit, debadged grill etc.. I'll just let the pics do the talking!















As it stands I only have a couple of little plans. New front splitter would be ideal, US front rubstrip with sidemarkers, tinted headlights of some description and fit a decent headunit + sub
My Golf was so low that I managed to break it every time I drove it so I won't be touching the ride height on this one, especially as I work down an unmade road! Just going to keep it practical/clean/OEM+ .. it already gets a lot of looks as it's unusual to see a modded Bora

I'll update this thread as stuff happens but it's not going to be a full on project like the Golf was as it's already a nice car and feels really luxurious!

Thanks for reading,
Joe
