Thought id post a pic of the ass rocking the all clears - loving the wider stance now I've got the banded steels sorted :



dunno if I should keep this exhaust on or change it for upswept tails though???  :whistle:

also more goodies came today courtesy of a mid day cheeky bid on ebay for a Thule Luggage basket

managed to get a couple of small jobs done yesterday while the weather held out.....

Boot struts to bonnet lifters conversion - yep don't look as good as chrome lifters however they were off my old 3 thus being free  :laugh:.......oh yeah excuse the dirty engine pic....haven't got around to the 16v lump yet!!!



Also managed to take out the air box - mod it slightly as I did with my 8v by adding a few extra holes and fit a pipercross panel filter



then took her out for a spin and a couple of photos of course!

So another weekend........another plan.......another mod/part........

After one hell of a journey, with nearly 300miles added to the MK7 wagon and a 10hr round trip  :laugh:

I've been after one of these for so long!



And fitted on Sunday :



Super happy with the result and completely finishes off the rear end with the all reds  :grin:
