    looking good feller

    I am from a VeeDub back ground so any thing in the weeds is good

    I recon you should pop a set of white 18's or some of nice big flat face rims like these to make it look proper evil........... get some one to photoshop some rims for ya

    Feck me, really dragging your ass in that first pic!!! Looking mean!

    I personally dont think the Mono's will suit your styling of the car, i.e colour coded kit etc, although i havent seen them on yet so will wait to see, but they usually suit more less styled cars. Think a multi/chunky spoke wheel will suit it better.

    Amazed with the change in the car since you started it, looks great, inspiring me to finally go get sum paint quotes lately!

    Thanks everyone!, Mono's are black at the minute, picked them up last night. Gonna spray them white and chuck them on and see what it looks like. If they dont look very good i'm gonna sell both sets and invest in something decent, either maybachs or splits.

    Went for the AP coilovers, as its as low as it can go its a bit bouncy but at the weekend i'll be raising it up to stiffen it. No rubbing as when was prepping for the respray i trimmed all the arch's, really pleased with it.

    Looks brilliant mate

    Only one thing that I think would improve it and that's removing the turbo badge but each to there own and all that.

    Looking forward to seeing it with the monos on.

    love the colour, not sure about the rims though mate maybe when you put the mono's it will look better. that is well low, hope you got the 4 wheel alignment sorted shortly or you wont have much tread on them tyres.

    is it a full RS widebody conversion as summin dont look right in the first pic. it must be the halfords turbo badge mind.

    Cheers. Colours called VW candy white, what the new golfs and scirocco's are. And the badge is not from halfords thanks, its a genuine porsche one. The only thing i'd buy from halfords is an air freshener!

    I like it.....not keen on the wheels but you've already said you may be changing them.

    Not keen on the lights either, had a set myself a while ago.

    Love the modified scene as EVERYONE has there own taste and style.

    Well done for not sticking to the "NORM"

    Each to there own eh! Didn't cost me a penny, apart from the parts. My dad owns a bodyshop where i've worked for the last 9 years so i done all the work myself apart from the spraying which i left to the painter. For all the work that was carried out we would have charged around 3000 so i had a right result. I'm actually quite proud of it, getting alot of positives from it so i'm chuffed!

    Cant make it saturday, i'll be busy at work prepping the mono's and winding up the coily's!

    Not too keen on the lights either, bit max powery. Wanted lights with black inserts and they came up, may sell them and go for facelifts again.
    Do you read PVW magazine?

    Hey Floyd, hows the AP coilovers working out for you?
    I still need to make my mind up what coilovers to get so any advise on how the AP ones shape up would be great.

    There amazing. Since fitted i've raised them up around 60mm as i was running on the bumstops, stupid really as it drove horrible! It drives superb now, complete transformation. No bouncing, not bumpy, just a smooth ride solid ride. I would recommend them.

    I remember when I lowered my B5 I too did it far too low - I remember once I had to mount the pavement and drive along it as I could not get over some speed humps down a back lane and I was holding up, and get this...... a tractor! My car must have looked like someone who hadn't drunk for days and was slithering slowly across the desert!

    That was the moment that I realised that be decked onto the ground was't as good as it looked!
