    Thought i would post up a few updates, have changed to Imigur now, as Photobucket are bellends

    I have changed all the interior and number plate bulbs to LEDs, looks much nicer with a white look

    U95VXV7.jpg

    Sprayed the rear Diamond and exhaust trim, also added red stripe

    Got hold of a Airtec intercooler, unused being sold cheap :smile:. Gave it a respray, not a fan of KTEC

    Gave the engine cover a respray, went with Oyster Grey(same color as the car) Have added an RS sticker to it since

    I have got it booked in the 21st, for the Intercooler and Forge recirc valve to be fitted, and getting it remapped by a local company, so fingers crossed :smiley:

    The white LEDs just look so much better than the stock lights.
