Hope this works uploading a pic since I cant use photobucket anymore!

Picked this up last week & hoping to keep it as a weekend car & enjoy it on my days off from work.

I like red, nice car :)

good luck with the headlight bulbs. unless you've hands like a kid you'll have to drop the bumper. have a look at mine on mine, took a morning to do!! (dying xenon thread)

hopefully pay as you drive will be along soon and save paying £600 a year for 2k miles!

(although I hold little hope any pay as you drive will end up cheaper for most)

They look like a nice upgrade . Are that much better than the o.e Xenon‘s ?
Seen a video of them in a MK6 Gati with factory xenon and the led are a much crisper light

Bumper will be being dropped, I'm doing the side lights and main beam as well so best taking the lights out.

£600 Road tax isn't the best, but on the 2 or 3 times a month I'll use it the sound will make up for it 😉

Hated the sound of the exhaust, it was a standard system with no Centre silencer and just sounded too raspy so......

Whilst it was on the ramp I had a good look underneath it, the rear arms are quite rusty so think I will sand them down and paint them for now & have 2 new ones on the next service.

The replacement scorpion exhaust not only sounds better but it also fits the rear valance better as well.

Then my final update for this week is I wanted a private plate for it.

I was after one that said R32 *** on it but they were silly prices, I then thought of a V6 plate like V6 MKV but that wasn't available so i settled for this one
