Bought this in August/September last year with 99k on the clock and service history up to 70k. It needed a bit of work when I got it but things quickly snow balled from there!
When I bought it, it had been remapped and had a miltek cat back fitted (also had dodgy tints+sunstrip but these were first to go)
Here is a snap of the way it was when I picked it up
Then the fun began! The work started straight away and inside the first six weeks it had, an engine rebuild, tb kit, new clutch, some breather hoses, cr engineering hybrid turbo, 440cc injectors, a shallow sump, badger 5 tip, forge diverter valve, intrax coilovers with solid rose jointed top mounts, cruise control and snowtyres fitted.
Then about 2500 miles later I replaced the oil and filter, an inner and outer cv joint, the wishbone bushes, brake light switch, air flow meter, number plates and fitted some H&R spacers, 10mm front and 25mm rear.
At 104k miles I replaced the brakes with new standard discs, Ferodo DS2500 pads and uprated ate brake fluid, got a new drivers door mirror glass, replaced a few more breather hoses, fitted a set of continental sport contact 2 tyres, a short shifter, a new genuine fuel pump and new oil and filter.
With most of the mechanical bits sorted out I turned my attention to the dull looking paint and faded headlights. Got a mate to wet vac the carpets etc too.
Few pics from before during and after
Filthy exhaust tips
Cloudy and faded headlights, so I sanded them down and compounded them back up, I dunno how well it can be seen in the pictures but they came up very well.
Nice shiny exhaust tips
Then this evening I fitted a Forge FMIC, new plastic tray under the windscreen and I'm waiting for new headlight bulbs to come tomorrow before I refit the headlights and front bumper.
Old and new

And a smoke test to make sure I have no leaks before fitting the bumper etc tomorrow
Thanks for reading, I've probably left some stuff out but all c&c's welcome!
