    Default X8 DUD Arden

    Thought I would get a progress thread going of my Arden. Not much progress so far as still have my other astra sitting on the drive waiting to be sold - Hopefully very soon!

    Anyway, picked up my 60 plate Arden Blue VXR in November 2012. A 2 hour drive each way to get it which gave me a good drive home time to get acquainted with my new toy

    Few pics when I went to pick her up


    And parked up next my 1.6 sxi



    Initial plans were:

    Transfer my alloys over from the 1.6 - photoshop image looked good, on the car not so good unfortunately


    Leds for number plate and interior
    CDTI conversion
    Wind deflectors
    Transfer stereo over from old car
    Recirc valve
    Precat removal
    Gradually begin to upgrade pipe work
    Rear tints (undecided)
    Few carbon goodies
    P/P switch

    Long term plan:

    3" turbo back
    FMIC
    Lowering
    RARB
    Remap
    Brake Upgrade

    Want to keep the car driveable and well balance rather than all out power.

    So first thing was transferring my plate over


    Need to get some new ones made up - just need ordering

    Currently having a lot of building work at home so mods are on hold for a bit, stereo has been transferred and a pipercross cone filter added - awaiting delivery of cdti hose conversion

    Hopefully then get my 1.6 sold and start looking at exhaust and possibly some carbon goodies

    Fitted CDTI conversion hose today, love the colour and flat spot in 4th has gone.



    Gf's first comment "Its a bit louder now" but it doesn't bother her so happy days. My mum on the other hand "how much louder is it and what does it do?!"

    Next will be some more detailing and other hose kits. Exhaust and FMIC when warranty runs out at the end of the year
