    I'm on the fence; it's a beautifully kept car with a fantastic grille mod, but when it's sunken into the weeds it just doesn't hold up for me.

    Second photo down in post 110 the front end of the car (overhang over front wheels) looks disproportionate when wheels are tucked that far up. I respect what it's taken to make it possible, but it's not something I'd aspire to do myself.

    I think there are very defined scenes with VAG, and some of those bleed out from VW where I associate this look into the other marques.

    Great work, just a touch extreme for my ageing tastes!

    Check out the 'stance' thread for my opinions on chav chariots and slammed cars. pmsl.
    What an abortion. I will never understand nor get it why people do that to a car. Please understand this is imho and is not meant to insult the owner personally in any way.

    I agree mate.. It is quite amazing that you can get a car to sit like this without having first dropped a piano five floors onto its roof!:w00t: I think the debate of ride height (or parked height?!) will never be resolved on here..

    Thanks for your comments, people have the right to make there own comment. This forum is always going to be one for the haters who keep there car totally standard and even frown at the thought of using even a different valve cap

    Haha knew that was a NHN comment
    First time I've heard the beyond chavvy comment, lol


    Cheers for comments

    Its all about getting what you want from a car, comments noted

    Hint of sarcasm noted haha

    I think it's a bit unfair to say that the forum is full of haters and I am certainly not against the modification of cars (mine is remapped and will shortly be having powder coated wheels and a Millltek cat back system fitted) but I do however believe that whatever mods are carried out should be done tastefully!

    The seat backs are a bit of a nightmare to strip, mine are painted. Ians3 wrapped his himself, if time is taken it can be done.

    The comment wasn't aimed at everyone, different people are going to hate different things

    The car is high spec with almost every option


    Since I have owned the car its been serviced every 10,000miles using genuine parts and Castrol SLX oil. The car is run on 50% V Power and 50% BP Ultimate fuel. The car is always warmed up before use and has never been thrashed as I would call it.


    The engine modifications carried out to take the car from 260 to 365 bhp cost just shy of £4000


    The car is fitted with the updated Sachs clutch and new dual mass flywheel which had only covered about 6k, the updated clutch is a must when running this kind of power.


    The paintwork on the car is in mint condition, the car was a show winning car. The car has been maintained regardless of cost.


    January 2011 had a new engine fitted car had covered 55000 it's now just over 70,000 the engine that was fitted had covered 2000 miles so in effect engine has only covered 18,000


    Now the important bit price, looking around you will struggle to fit another Ibis White S3 which has the stage 2+ kit, infact there are not many standard white ones about in the price bracket


    Give me a call for any more info or pics

    Private plate is not included and has now been transfered
