    From what I can see on this pokey iPhone screen it looks ok mate. Better than my crappy ford Escort that I had as my 1st car.

    Its quite subtle as its just extra trim stuck onto the original kit but the central exhaust really isn't doing it for me anymore lol. Will put all the pics up soon peeps!

    so this is how she looked when i first bought the car for £2100 with 42k on the clock. The pictures make the car look quite tidy but there was a few small bits and pieces to sort like the sagging exhaust, cracked front bumper and some new alloys as these were pretty beat up.

    After some elbow grease, all the minor problems were dealt with and the car recieved a well needed service. new spokes were put on and here is how she looks now :smile:

    Fair play dude, I like it, the kit as mentioned isn't the best but its not the worst either, I love the alloys, you getting a RS Grille too I assume? Just put one on mine and it changes the front of the car completely.

    That's decent for a first car mate. I started with a 1.2 16v. Miss it loads.
    Good job on getting a rear bumper sorted. Is it much hassle to remove the rest of the body kit from original bumpers?
    I would get a front rs grille as well.
    What wheels you got? Can't make out what they are.
    The bonus you have is that your bump strips are all colour coded.

    Ideal first car !. The body kit has been glued on along with some small screws in the arches, would try taking it of but I don't know if the paint from the original bumpers would come off with the glue lol. Yer looking for an RS grille. They were chrome wolf race 17" alloys but I stripped them back and painted them black :smile:

    Cheers for all the other positive responses people !

    They were chrome wolfrace, super lightweight 17", bought them like that for 70 quid but they were in a state so I stripped them back, filled some of the bad dents from curbing and sprayed them black :tongueout:
