    The battery is dead, remember! :keule:

    N8 KOW is on the detailing wagon. Hay N8 is for the car as the gf drives it as well. ;)

    Coilovers are the way forward, been saying that for the past year not many people listen. They are standard 18"s from the factory, got some lovely 20"s going on in April.

    Just need the chrome RNS-E knobs, and bluetooth then it won't be far from perfect to me :beerchug:

    Lucky to wash it underground :)

    Indeed lad :cool:

    Nice mate - think you should get an optics grill to complete the outside look of the car!

    Hiya Boss. PIAA ones from PRI Racing, from that group buy a while back.

    Cheers Jon

    Well it wouldn't match Boydie, I've gone for the classy "chrome" theme, hence grille, mirrors, roof rails, and now diamond cut 20"s to match :)

    Thanks though :arco:

    is that a dent on the drivers door or just the light? Car is looking good, I now know what my car will look like with the chrome grill in contrast to the optics on Matts when I get my bumper done.

    Cheers Lee, I would have taken some pics with the xenons/rear lights on but the battery has gone flat AGAIN! :keule:Only the 7th time, I should be lucky :laugh:

    Thanks alot lad, you know that means alot to me :beerchug:

    £3.5k/£4k I think, all worth it :)

    THESEare the ones you want John, with some resistors from maplins! They are PERFECT, not too bluey like the new BMs.

    Its a scratch, good old gf ey! :laugh:, Akoya Silver is a "classy" colour imo, so the chrome suits it better. imo.

    I got my bumper really cheap blazing, but if you search forum there is loads of info on it. Its expensive but worthwhile imo. I need to get the 20"s furbed, get some rubber, sort arches and I'm away :)

    I dunno bout arches, turn the rear dampers upto maximum hardness, have to do some trial fitting and see, but they'll go on, don't you worry about that lad :lmfao:

    Open your eyes Rob! :)

    :applaus: I know that already, bluetooth and bodywork are the next areas that need attention!
