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

Milltek Cat-back exhaust
18" BBS RC's

I was bored last night so i swapped the Monty 2's off the Bora and put the 18"'ers off my Beetle


Not going to be the long term rims, but will do till i can afford new
Does highlight the fact i need to drop the ride height a bit now though  :laugh:

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

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

So got rid of the wood and replaced it with the Net Optic style trim, but it is a bit tatty so had a go a using some carbon fibre sheeting(real carbon not the wrap stuff) i bought a while back.
only done the side trim and drink tray flap
Oh and a new gear knob too
