ok i thought i should start a thread, had the car long enough :D

ok i brought her back in December 2008
she was dropped about 100mm, got it from near Southampton
here's how it sat when i got it





was decent, had low mileage (74k) but needed bits and bobs doing, so haggled the price right down

it had angel lights and a magnex exhaust, i did not like either
so over the time both are gone/going (exhaust is going soon for a standard one)

also the coilovers had dirt etc in the so i couldn't raise it, and living in Birmingham/Coventry Uni, i just couldn't hack it being young(er) and just got my first fast car

so i put her back on standard springs/shocks




basically the car has been in a shunt before (before i got it) and the plonker put the wrong slam panel on, there was an AC and non-AC slam panel, as the AC rad was 30mm longer

he put an AC rad on my car, and as the rad was too short, the rad was fouling on the front sub frame, so over violent bemps would jerk and knock my radiator top pipe out :(

but i didn't know this, so for weeks and months i read up, asked people etc to find out why it wasn't sitting right until i went to my favourite Breakers yard (gtikezz hahaha she breaks alot of mk2 ibiza GTI's) and i compared the 2, and now it is rectified

it has had little niggles, and was neglected before me, so i have been giving it TLC!
still pulls like a slapper on a drunk night out

i then got bored of the tractor stance, so i got hold of some springs, and it is at a much better height lol




(sorry angel lights were swapped literally days after this pic )

as you can see she gleams, as she is washed, waxed and polished all the time, which i think last owner might not of?

U big poof
they would squeeze under the arches with some 'shimmy shim shims' and a stretch tyre
The poke on the raddo is worse than than before 'making' them fit!!!

Oh and Suj, you bought the car well before december 2009

Oops, had a mare, was meant to be dec 2008, will change now
Shhh you plonker, I don't want shimmy's as I want it as a daily, and don't want camber eating my tyres!
So I compromised at the moment :)
Go and buy a lada son ;)

whats you doing with the coilovers mate?? <3 the colour of it =)
Coilies were sold to someone, as I didn't have time to un-cease them and get them on
Thing is I might have coilies again lmao
Thanks I love the colour too :)


Thanks for all the kind words, and claire its not a shed....actually it is lmao
