    Thought it was about time I introduced myself

    Hey, ive been knocking about on here for a few months now, got a 2.5tdi avant as a daily and thought id put up a few progress pics

    Nothing too daft happening as its a daily driver, ive got a fiesta turbo, mk3/4 escort thing and an r32 skyline for fun

    when it was advertised








    211k on the clock, full service history, went up and test drove it, bit of a knock on the front end but engine was sweet as a nut

    next came the s4 wheels that i bought with the car



    and a leather trim off ebay, minus door cards and some cleaning!


    then bit the bullet and bought a new set of AP coilovers from venom, fitted them at weekend, just waiting for them to settle propperly before i start adjusting






    also tried a mates 19inch lm reps but cant afford the price he wants for them unfortunately



    thats about it for now, ive got this bumper


    that i bought off ebay, im currently half way through smoothing the swage line out of it


    hoping to get it on next week sometime, along with removing the weather strips off the bottom of the doors, colour coding the sills and smoothing and removing the exhaust recess on the back bumper

    then it will be facelift lights and other bits

    Excellent.. liking the sound of the 'dubbed' Polo. I'm thinking.. low, Euro look, smoothed, split rims, stretched tyres, maybe even a bonnet bra?

    Get some pics up.

    bit of an update

    got some new wheels and finished the bumper and fitted it, dechromed the grille. im still undecided on the bumper, but i only fitted it this morning so i suppose i'll have to see if it grows on me!













    wheels are 18x8.5 reps, et35, i was only buying them as a stop gap instead of the S4 avus's, but i have to admit, as common as they are i love the way they look!

    The Avant looks awesome, mate. I'm doing all I can to try and gather enough coin to do some stuff to my Saloon. "Work in progress". Ahem.

    Also, I'm intrigued about the Escort.
