    Hey Peeps!

    So now that I've got all the bits I need ready to start making changes I thought I should start a thread.

    I got the car in September last year - first day home....out with the old, in with the new :)

    The first thing I did (3 weeks later) was get those horrid standard wheels on eBay and bought my new 18" Dare alloys at a ridiculously cheap price. Although, I'm now on the lookout for some 19" LM reps as soon as cash flow permits lol

    Post-wash on a particularly gloomy Sunday hoping for better pictures this weekend.

    Then last week, my coilies arrived!!!

    Last Saturday...........
    Before: (I'm gonna wait til they settle before I do an after shot, so as to give an accurate view.)

    Rear - before (excuse the filthyness):

    Eek!

    Rear...after:

    I should point out that the rear has settled a good 20mm since Saturday - so adjustments will be made this weekend then I can do an 'after' pic.
    Also, weather permitting, the husband is fitting my LCR splitter this weekend and maybe a few other bits :)

    I'll get some better, clearer pics up as soon as possible.

    Cheers guys!

    Note to self, must get myself a hubby.....

    Nice to see the car taking shape, looking much better already for getting shot of the smaller OEM rims and the arch gap!

    Keep up the good work.

    Thanks! I was holding out until I had actually made progress haha Yeh they do have their uses lmao - (sorry boys!) The 'little useless girl' card is a great one to play in these instances! haha - however, he has been rewarded with a takeaway and some Wheel Whores stickers! lol

    Fingers crossed for a dry weekend to crack on :icon_thumright:
