    Thanks matey well if i keep her i will be doing nothing more to styling really, but changing the engine bay and having a tidy out in there get her all nice and clean ad tidy got to get a new bracket for the induction so it is a straight coming off instead of a angle.. and egr delete oil catch tank and then a map ..

    and the colour is volkswagen canyon red mate looks awsome under the sun and has a similar metallic to the lava grey so a great compliment..

I may have to steal your mod on the front audi badge mate!!Haha sorry, just to break up the front end on my car. As its all gloss black at the moment. You got any more photos of your car?

    Thanks for the photos Kev car looks lovely. Lava grey is the best colour haha. Car looks good, and great stance, what spring or coilovers do you have? & how low the car?

    Sorry mate im gonna have to pinch your idea! :) I'll be buying a spare front badge on monday and going to get the spray cheers. Mate i love the rear end photo by ritz shows off the colour plus the stance and the alloys. Top car mate. I'll drop you a photo once i've done the badge to my car. Is your roof sprayed or wrapped? Also did you get the spoiler done or just the roof?

    Thanks for the help
