    unfortunately after just a couple of months gearbox lost 1st 2nd and reverse, pure luck it happened in my street. so got it reconed, clutch, flywheel etc etc.
    then befor i knew it i had the itch for a couple changes, so got some AP coils ordered and picked up a cheep set of CH reps on gumtree. painted them white then stuck it all together, also got the mirror covers done at the same time.

    next up i fancied some big brakes so was looking at 4 pots but then thought fk it....

    6 pots from the cayanne turbo, have sold these these now (which i now regret) but if im honest they were a bit overkill considering i dont even have a remap lol

    have just bought a house so updates will be slow but hopefully in the near future;

    spacers to bring the rears out flush
    remap
    front splitter
    miltek (non res)

    as for long term plans they change daily so wont babel on lol and views, good or bad are welcome

    Cheers mike

    You know what, that looks absolutely spot on mate!

    Really really like the white on black! I wouldn't colour code anything else in white otherwise I think it'd be too much but just the wheels and mirrors in white on the black look awesome! :)

    Look forward to any future updates matey!

    believe it or not car is actually blue!! your not alone tho one of my mates only seen it was blue last month and he has seen the car once a week for nearly a year!! Lol need the sun to really spot it, and yeah that's all the white I'm doing, any more and I think It would start to look daft.

    better pic of the colour

    I like this! Subtle, clean, nice mods. I would of kept the brakes though as I bet they looked wicked behind the wheels.
