Cheers peeps :good:

 

@MJ - amazing what a lit car park can do :lol:

 

@Maxitrol - happy for you to, PM'd you. Yeah Matt's build will be ace when it's done, just gutted he can't make the Mega Meet as desperate to see it.

Cheers Wullie.
 
@Maxitrol - cheers mate. Yeah here it is: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/262475121260
 
FYI - I think it does look a lot better but I do wish it would sit more flush with the base unit.


If it's any help I recently changed mine too, same reason! I got this one from Germany for a few extra quid as there is a lot of crap out there and although longer than yours, it sits perfectly. Can take a picture if that helps :)

Oh btw, the car looks great! I have a Milktek Mani and lucifer resonated set up, be interested to hear the difference. On that note how's the intake? Cheers

Just tried to PM you a pic, but using my iPad there was no option to upload photos, so will post them here instead, hope that's ok?

No worries, ta.

 

Need one really close up to see how flush it is to the other surface that it screws into if possible?

Been a while since I've posted an update. Biggest change is getting the alloys refurbished, they were in a horrible state. Before and after pictures below. I think the darker colour looks good and I've got a few other changes that I'm going to do over the weekend. Really enjoying driving it at the moment, especially given the fact dry roads are here :spiteful: dc13ab86fdbbedcc87ee0c24a77c5908.jpg7c61da2fbdc4495b6df6c29bfb0a2955.jpg8c1a53419da7108063516920009ca938.jpg

Darker wheels look lovely
Black is the hardest color to keep clean but when clean looks the best, no arguments there then.

Long overdue an update. The changes to photobucket which resulted in several images being removed has hit a lot of us. The thought of having to go and update the thread is daunting to say the least...and mines a small thread! Anyway, latest big change for me has been the engine bay touches. 83399adab748984e40214bde8f821516.jpg Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

Cheers mate - go for it.

 

That's interesting - wonder how they recovered them all - but I've now discovered Tapatalk and find it half decent.

Decided to head out and get some pics of the car to escape the Christmas/New Year madness. f7414aa4438f8f5d9353b3b75f770518.jpg3e18e7231557dd83ea6ff6f83a114840.jpg1286b575fbd5099896b185e361891a5f.jpg Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

Cheers Andy. It's running a Milltek rear silencer, but I forgot to take my polish to my folks so couldn't get it shining :rolleyes:

Cheers man :D

Nice looking motor and subtle mods mate! Giving me ideas on mine! The blue coil covers are a good change! Won’t go with my bay as it has a red forge intake Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

I will have a look at them. Not too fussed about changing them. They match the intake so it’s not all bad 😊
