    After a little nudge from Rab I thought I’d better start my mod thread. As I’ve only just got the car it will be a steady start but things on the list are as follows.....

    First I have an led headlight upgrade in the post (pic to follow)
    Second will be the full interior dash light change performed by Unilateral (as soon as we can sort a date)
    Third I will be painting my callipers the classic red as I think it looks good against the black bodywork
    Fourth I will be saving my pennies for a remap
    Fifth will be a custom exhaust

    After that lot I will see where it goes but that will do fo a start.

    Couple of pics below as it stands without any mods to date.....

      Today I have decided to de-badge the rear, I did it on my first siggy and I think it just looks a bit cleaner than with them on, I will post a before and after so you can comment on your like or dislike of it.

                That was quick! Good job, if I did it you'd still be looking at the glue!

                        Does that soften the glue?

                            Which led bulbs did you get in the end?

                            Thumbs down for the debadging but car is looking nice and clean.

                              Led lights turned whilst cleaning the motor out so fitted them. I'll do a night time pic later but this is them fitted.
