    Default PICS of colour coded bits. Best 200 spent so far!!

    Guys,

    Got the car back from my pals body shop today. He removed all plastic bits, & door handles, & colour coded!! He's done a great job, the finish is perfect, & looks like its fresh outa the factory!!

    Before:



    After:









    Call me crazy, but I think my standard trim painted, looks as good as any xp kit!!.

    Done the air box mod, & fitted my K&N filter.

    Next on the list is EGR blanking plate, with an EDS remap!!

    Regards.

    PS - Who else thinks the front needs to be dropped another 20mm?? Think I need to add coil overs to my list!!

    Don't blank your EGR, your engine will implode and cause the life expectancy of swamp beetles to halve* !!!

    What springs you got now, Eibach by any chance..?

    * it won't actually, but some may think it would

    I dont think he packed out the lower lip, but I know he used all the proper flexible primer/paint etc. I have my eye on a VXR complete front end, so spraying the front lip was a temp fix.
