I have a problem jacking my car up too! With it's new 'lowness' i have managed to shear off all but one of my jacking points. Now have to use a wooden block and pick a part of my sill to inflict pain on! Roll on the next M.O.T!

just bought some more new goodies. front fogs, head lamp levers, loom and switch.

when i manage to put these on (if its not that big of a job), i should have tinted the headlamps, cut dip/dim resistor and put HID's back on.

not much of a job is it - tint lamps, HID's, fit levelers, wiring,cut dip/dim resistor, fogs and switch .......... fingers crossed

hell yeah, i found my solution to stop the rubbing on the arches. but looks a little hmm! affraid

tbh starting to like these bbs rims. design looks good but when it comes to washing em, i'm completely the opposite. lol!

had been thinking alot about sorting the rubbing out; which resulted in either keeping the borbets or the arches, one or the other but now i think i'm just gunna put more spring adjusters in to stop the spring compressing soo much. maybe dangerous on bumpy roads i know but will look aces. just need someone to touch the paint work up.

sounds a bargain. be carfully seperating it from the cat. its prob still on original system and might be a ball ache to split. Oxy acetelene may be required

bought it from venom motorsport. you have to call up coz they don't list them on the web. went for the twin round, think it would look better with 2 pipes pokin out that one big PHAT one.

from what i know, as this is a first for buyin exhaust like this, i've bought a cat back 2 box stainless system with twin 80mm pipes.

think it arrived today but i missed delivery so have to get up in morn n collect it. only ordered it weds.
