Hi, im a 17 year old lad and got this as my first car, let me know what you think !
Looks really tidy! got any modification plans?
just bought a 172 rear bumper and a ktec exhaust. Bough the car with this body kit/trim on it and its got a central exhaust which im not to keen on. looking for lowering springs now aswell. will put more pics on soon
Looks very nice, get rid of the sparco sticker and get some More pictures up!
Knew it wasnt going to take long for someone to tell me to take that sticker off , will be more pics tonight
not the worst body kit ive ever seen in all fairness BUT it will look so much better without. more pics needed though
I say lose the body kit before someone from barryboys.co.uk posts your car on their website.
Really nice for a first car. Mine was crap lol.
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
Got a 172 bumper and new exhaust on its way as well as lowering springs. Updates coming soooon.
Dark chocolate I like it
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
Cheers for all the other positive responses people !
Ah I see. Fair enough. Hope it doesn't pull any paint off anyway
On the hunt for some smaller wheels, 15's or 16's. Any suggestions?
Pictures welcome !
Get 15's. And get rid of the exhaust lol. Looks nice tho mate. Love the black rims btw
I love the black alloys! What are they?!
I dont actually mind that bodykit...its not to in your face! I actually don't mind the exhaust either as its abit different ( I know i am gunna get ripped for saying that! lol)
As cswalmsley said i had a 1.2 16v aswell and i miss it loads aswell! Sad times
Nice plans tho mate...keep up the good work!
Really nice! what wheels are they?
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
Some days I really want to get the kit gone and others I don't think it's to bad lol. Haha yer the exhaust sounds nice but looks crap, got a 172 bumper and new exhaust now
Bye bye central exhaust !
New 172 bumper back from paint
That's miles better. How's it sound now?
To be honest mate, it's ridiculously loud lol! It's straight through from the cat, love how it looks though compared to the central one !
nice job mate
i have the same exhaust (i think) its very loud
Don't know whether to change it or not lol ?
may as well keep it now bud, save your money for a second car thats faster than this lol
Aye, don't dis the power of a 1.2
What you doing with your black alloys if your getting some 15 or 16's?
Selling them or swapping ?
i like the look of that but s**t i bet its loud. get a video up lol.
looking miles better though
What happened to the original wheels and what size were they? Cheers
Tried getting a video up but don't know how to do it ? Lol
Still got them with 4 brand new tires on, only done about 50 miles on them, 17'' bk racing. Let me know if your interested
I would be mate but think 17" is a bit big, getting coilovers fitted soon so they'd probably scrub lol, cheers anyway
Haha okay mate no worries
