    following on from my main man pavs thread, what mods have u done this past year and which was your fave?

    i bought my car in oct 06, not long after the mods started. First off was the lowering 35mm from whom DPM kindly supplied the springs. my car came ready fitted with 19' RS6's and looked like a bus so it needed sorting first. after this i began the exterior bodywork, i got a s-line spoiler off ebay then came the votex front and side skirts. this brings me up2 this month in which i went a tad mental and spent over £600 on my car, this included 2 new tyres, 6k xenon headlamp kit and tints all round(what better way is there to spend your work bonus than on ur car lol)
    ill get some pics sorted asap but at the mo ive kinda lost interest after some dumb ass blonde bitch in work smashed into my wing causing £540 worth of damage. so when thats fixed ill get the rear votex bumper to finish my car off, possibly a coule of exhausts aswell depending what grills i decide to go for with the bumper:arco:here the latest pics of mine anyhoo b4 tints and xenons

    I bought my wheels in Nov 06. The 190 came with the full s-line kit and 17's. First thing first car needed a detail as the prev owner relied on the local drive through car wash so off it went to Steve from www.the-detailer.com for several hours of tlc. Next up a set of rep 18inch RS6's with 235 profile tyres. In Oct this year had timing belt, water pump etc changed. Thats it my friends so far

    Fitting the coilovers and the RS4 ARB.

    It looks soo much better now on the lower stance, was a real bitch to do, but worth it, corners perfectly now.

    Carbotech Bobcat brake pads
