    Still contemplating light smoke window tints and lowering on Eibach springs. I'm afraid I'll get addicted on spending if I start modifying it though!

    Always nice to see a clean and original Noggy S3! :cool:

    Tints is entirely upto you, but with regards to lowering it, just class it as an upgrade, since over time, you will find your front or rear coils will snap due to age/corrosion. OEM replacement springs are silly money.

    Gorgeous,gorgeous and did I say gorgeous

    Car looks mint and although a fan of lowering and uprating the suspension I would seriously consider keeping a mint example like that totally original.

    Looks very nice that mate, as for tints i'd i think a light smoke would look quite nice.

    Thanks for the compliments guys/girls. :)

    Rav, that's another reason I'm reluctant about those modifications; it would lose the clean OEM look. I probably will end up keeping it in original form as I have a project car for the occasional weekend/track use:

    Lee, mine is one of the last made in the 8L I'm sure (31st Oct 2003) not sure when the 8P shape was released. I have seen them on a 53 reg too but maybe they started in January (be 53 reg until April or thereabouts).

    I have no idea where mendips is, so no I didn't buy my Glanza from there. I build it at home and painted it myself. I had another one back in 2007 as a first car, rebuild that too but it was only a replica (painted it the same colour). Never heard of another in this colour on any of the Starlet forums. :shrug:

    Looks great. Just need to sort that passenger side door blade out (mine looks exactly the same) & get the rims re-furbed and that'd be a really cracking example. Just make sure nobody removes your door mirrors for you. I've taken to tucking my car up under the car port for the night, just to avoid any prying eyes... Only downside is that the cat now sits on the roof in winter.

    Personally - I'd go for the lowering springs.

    Cheers guys :thumbsup:

    Yes that door blade has been annoying me for a while, just ordered some new bits for the Glanza so I can get it driveable again so I can move it out of the garage. Once the S3 is in there I'll get the door sorted and give it a proper polish and wax too.

    The wheels do have the odd little kerb marks but if I were to refurb them I'd do them in the Summer. I'd be tempted to go for Anthracite maybe, we shall see. She has new Bosch wipers so maybe I'll get aero wipers when they need replacing again! As for the chrome grill, I quite like how it works with the wing mirrrors so it will be staying as it is.

    Cheers again, glad you guys like it! :D
