    Default Introducing my pride and joy

    I thought i would introduce to all you folks my pride and joy having only just become a new full member. Ive owned my Vec C 1.9cdti 150 sri around 2yrs now and had no intentions of modifying her till i found this site, thanks to your inspiration, how could i not!

    She's a 54 plate 2005 and currently on 51000 miles and am the second owner. I didnt do much to her in the first year but have done a few bits over the last year with more yet to come!

    Just a quick run through what ive done to her so far, all carried out by myself to avoid labour charges -

    Debaged Grill
    Genuine 19" vxr alloys
    VX front and rear mudflaps
    Apex 35mm lowering springs and strut top bearings
    Clour coded boot trim and front lower valance ( painted with Halfords rattle cans)
    xenon bulbs
    Debaged
    Tdi-Tuning Box (running approx 210bhp)
    Full major service including cambelt kit, water pump and new antifreeze
    Cleaned EGR valve and fiat gasket fitted
    Cleaned boost sensor
    Claned throttle body and manifold
    Blower resistor
    New led 3rd brake light

    Think that covers all i think lol

    To come -
    HID'S
    VXR rear lower rear valance, VXR diffuser and stainless twin pipes
    Carbon door pillars and some dash trims
    VXR boot spoiler.

    Now for the pics -
    I will start with her standard and at the start of the modifications and how she is today. She isnt as shiny as usual since not having a detail since before the start of the cold weather.

    Hope you all like and all opinions welcome. Thanks for looking and im already enjoying being part of a forum full of top folks.

    The rear is sitting a little high at the moment due to it being jacked up just before taking the pictures, it does settle a little further but not enough for my liking!
