Cheers JV!

So i've just sold my 2.slow and upgraded to a 1.8t AGU.  Was originally looking for an AUM but got this for a pretty good price (i think)! was £2500. 84k on the clock, FSH, mint condition!

Plans for the car:
Ko3s
Remap
Forge Tip
Forge Dv
Coilovers
Alloys (not sure which ones yet)
Anni kit
Miltek anni style exhaust
Cai
Front and rear Arb

Heres a few pics from the garage i brought it from. Will get some better ones soon..









Thanks for looking  :smiley:

Got myself some new headlight bulbs this week and got them fitted today. Got these for the dipped beam:



Pretty dissapointed with how they look tbh... still quite yellow. Still need to test them out in the dark though. Also got some ebay LED sidelights which look spot on. Will try get pics later  :smiley:

Right got it fitted :smiley: first attempt and it wouldnt turn off when i took the key out of ignition. After coming back here and getting some help i changed over the red and yellow wires on the back and that sorted the problem. Im pretty pleased with it tbh i think it looks quite OEM.. heres the pics:





Also got a new pollen filter fitted today! was quite surprised how damp my old one was so hopefully it will stop my car getting condensation all over the inside of the windows. If not then im gonna have to search for a leak  :sad:
