    Looking SWEET, Fella! I just get a funny feeling that this is going to be a pretty epic build, judging on how long you've had the car (a few hours, lol!) and what you've achieved with it already. Happy days Alex, ENJOY!!! x

    I wouldn't bother with HID's, they'll give u nothing but trouble, re wiper motor issue.

    Also, aftermarket kits are an MOT fail in a few months.

    Get some decent halogen bulbs to put u on til u get ur xenons.

    Oh and, nice blank canvas u got there, I see u got the modding bug already lol

    This forum def gets u spending even more!

    Haha i've always had the modding bug looking at my old cars :P

    I'm undecided weather i want subtle tint or smoke tint on my rear lights? Smoke would be more black so matching the theme? But i dont want to get subtle and it just be a pointless thing really.

    Pressed plates are now ordered also :D

    Jesus you don't hang around mate. Fair play!

    What's the remap done for your insurance costs? I'm considering a remap in 6 months or so when I get bored of the power it's currently got to offer (at the moment though it's still a massive difference from my old car!)

    I'm a similar age to you at 21 so insurance is the first thing I have to consider before modding my car...

    Got any pics of those H7 bulbs in action? I got some Osram nightbreakers a few months back and they are crapola. They are bright enough but they are pretty yellow. I was going to order some Philips Diamond ones but if these are as good then it could save me £20.

    You can also see my buisness behind the car :D

    And some of the heap..

    Really think the rear end looks crap! Needs a new diffuser or something? Maybe a full s3 rear..
