First mod, stereo cable for iPod/phone routed from aux-in to glovebox



(keeps it tidy, even if most of the time the iPod lives in the cupholder anyway!)


Second mod, ready for winter, and a jolly good job it was too.
15" BBS rim's with Nokian WRG2 rubber






transformed it in the snow, the only time it got stuck this winter; trying to get over a speed hump, uphill in just under a foot of snow

Looking good nightflight, the spoiler will really set the rear off nicely.

Very nice, really love the white badge and letters.

Should look great with the spoiler, still waiting on mine where ever it is....dealers are rubbish for getting back to you.

Got round to fitting the spoiler this afternoon, think it finishes the rear end off nicely

plenty of before and after shots


















Can't wait to get the original wheels back on it after pay day. the BBS's have served me well over winter but by **** are they letting the car down now

Would it be overkill to paint the door handles, mirror caps, side skirts and possibly the black plastic (under the boot, the car undertray?) white?

Yes it would lol

Get the wheels done and get it lowered and it will look sweet!

Don't do every random thing you see White or it will end up looking poo.

But for now... Bravo! Looks lovely

I've considered all of those rahul but figured that it would be overkill. less is definitely more

Think next thing is some new tyres on the original alloys, put them back on and possibly some white mirror covers as a stop gap to tie the front in with the rear until I can afford some white alloys (I rather like the white mirrors on Beck's LCR)

I'd also like to upgrade the brakes and make them nice and red and shiny at some point, sideskirts and lower it. But for now i'm going to enjoy the spoiler for a bit then probably do a few little things like the indicators and repeaters as i think if you do too much in one go you don't fully appreciate each thing.

Finally got some new rear tyres (Falken FK452's) so the summer shoes could go back on,
I'd almost forgotten just how pretty the car is with the proper wheels on it, they've even made the spoiler look more "in place"







Now it just needs a wash and vacuum, dirty thing!

Just fitted some silvatec indicators and side repeaters. Bit of a booboo with the repeaters as they've got orange surrounds so the bulbs have naff all effect til I can source some clear ones.
I'll get some pics up of those later.

Also just bought some sideskirts at a massively bargain price

Quick pic with the new bulbs.
Isn't it often the simplest of things that make the difference.
