    How Car Currently looks












    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------




    ill start with appearance and some very minor stuff as atm the car is standard performance wise and im currently saving to go stage 2 or 3 straight off the bat . ill update this thread with anything I do and my opinion on what ive changed

    Ok so first thing I did was change the head unit , the idea of having Bluetooth etc was something I really wanted , soon as I found out there was plug and play units I was straight on it




    I went for an eonon unit , and while I couldn't get it to sit flush in the space the unit itself has been great & have been really impressed , so far (4 months) everything has been just as hoped and I recommend these units .

    Next I installed the wind deflectors (team heko)


    I wasnt sure about these at first but once I installed I thought they looked good , it seems everyone has these on atm . Im not sure the practical side of things work that well but they look good and are ok for when raining

    Next thing my rubber seal started coming off near the door so I bought the clip from VX and fixed it and has been fine so far





    Next I noticed the seat leather coming away was annoyed at this so tried fixing by getting the clips from recardo but am currently in the process of fixing



    Next thing to break was my glove box , the whole thing came off as the plastic handles had snapped , I took the whole thing out and used cable ties to repair . its safe as houses now so I put my gps antenna in there out the way


    I wanted to change the center wheel cap next as didn't like the griffin badges , I took them off and replaced with the aluminium Vxr Badge , I also added vxr sticker to wing mirror but later took off



    Next Up the lights , I bought a full set off W20adm (thankyou) and I must say these transformed the car at night , the standard yellow ones look so bad compared , really pleased with these

    Next I cleaned the car because it was a mess wax shine and I used the clay bay ... I wanted to colour code so ive bought some wrap to give wrapping the roof a try .
    I wrapped the back and front side vents in black and the roof will be black too . Ive purchased a tailgate handle(mine dodgy) and the VX spray paint to do all exterior handles on the car in black




    Ive also purchased an armrest , I wasn't sure I would actually use this that much but liked the idea so went for it . Its great and I use it all the time , the storage and look suits well and is something I didn't think id like so much .




    I also have pipes to be fitted and other bits and bobs soon

              Thanks mate, I've still got a red cap so I can change back, I'm hoping when the handles are black it will look ok but will see, got a feeling when I do roof black will want bonnet black too but it all just try and see. Im digging your vxr too tbh I've never seen one like that

                    Took roof rails and aerial base off to wrap roof black ... did all that and messed roof up lol soooooooo... that might have to be done by professionals , been quoted £200 which im not willing to pay at the moment . taking aerial off tho got me thinking of a black shark fin so that's something im going to look in too




                    also sprayed some of the interior red to give the inside abit of red





                    Added sunstrip and will probably put a sticker in middle , depending on mot may do it abit bigger



                    Meet a few VXR people so thought id promote lol I know site aint what it was but still .... I may put next one in line with vxracing next time

                        just couple of repairs ....Boring stuff really

                        Been using the Dry cone filter , taken off to clean . car seems to run better with panel . Dont know if its just in my head or been getting turbo lag with cone



                        fan only blew on setting 4 so changed resister on that



                        added logo to my sunstrip and a dashcam that was really pleased with , rooted that to fuse box



                        changed reverse light switch and headlights ready for MOT




                        cracks in the bottom part of my bumper are getting worse tho , really wish someone would sell me bottom part for reasonable price & one thats in decent condition. been checking ebay for over 6 months now




                        silencer delete pipe added too


                        Next im going to spray V on grill and wrap roof and bonnet gloss black Also gearbox refurb :s

                          sprayed the V black , done the badge red but i may change it to black , need the bonnet and roof doing black to fully appreciate the 'V' i think . I also got a replacement bumper splitter its in blue so needs respraying , i may do this but with my recent efforts i may get a 'professional to do' or maybe ill try ... mess it up then get a professional to do . Just glad i managed to get one for decent price thats no damage

                            Nice work. I like repair stuff, it's not really boring. It shows you are a responsible owner lol.

                            I've been thinking about spraying my mirror plastic gloss black. I got polish on the drivers side and it is literally impossible to get off if left to set on there. So its a good excuse at least.

                              I think the red and black sits well together & should on yours too, im ok with smallish parts to spray . The bumper bottom i acquired tho may be too big for me , may need a gun etc . with it being such a big area i dont wana mess it up with runs etc . I dont take my amateurish skills too seriously but still want it to look good
