    I know this is the 8P section but I feel I've done so well with the 8P front conversion to my 8L that I feel it belongs here.

    Took a lot of work so your compliments will be happily received..

    Next on the list of mods.... a rear 8P sportback conversion.

    I picked up the bumper for £2.50 off ebay. Cost about £100 in sellotape to fix it in place though. Still cheap when you look at the results though. I just don't drive too fast or in the rain just in case the tape comes loose.

    Who is barry?

    Yeah the bumper is slightly a different colour. I couldn't get hold of the correct silver so used some paint that I had left over when I sprayed my old Vauxhall Nova a few years ago.

    Funny you should mention that. When I was doing the conversion i got rid of the Audi Q7 mats I had in there and put in some 8P mats instead.
    They fit a lot better and now I can fully press the accelerator down, so yeah the car does go faster now.
    Gets in the way of the brake a bit though.

    I'm actually offended that you'd think that. Took a lot of hard work and planning.

    I'll stay reserved as well. I just keep smirking when I see it. But each to their own. As long as you are happy with the hard work and planning! Good job!

    Last time I checked it was about 19 seconds.
    I know that sounds slow but I couldn't change gears properly cos I was holding the stopwatch.

    The naughty step can be a bit of a boring place, and while sitting there thinking about a silly mod (of the car variety, of course) I came up with this brilliant one!

    Am I correct in saying you guys don't like it then?

    Damn that looks so much better than my crappy old double grill 8P ! Anyone want to buy it for £2.50 to fund the bumper for my new 8LP2 ???

    Will the bonnet still open okay? If so, I reckon you should try trimming the plastics to make it all stand out that little bit more. My mum's got a pearlescent silver ironing board cover going spare, I could post it to you if you'd like to snip it up and glue it on somewhere or other?

    Car looks bangin.
