    Default My 2.2DTI - Image heavy

    Here is my 2002 2.2DTI before and after pics. There has been a lot of work in the engine and rear and interior as it was a bit tired and oldish.

    It started life as middle aged Elegance so it had a very nice spec to start with but now the exterior has been done and side de-badged and the interior body coloured it looks well nice me thinks

    Just needs some bigger wheels But its amazing how much some colourcoding and changing to the tinted rear lights can transform a car. Keep up the good work dude

    Thanks fellas

    I would love some nice 17"'s or 19"'s as these are 16"s and a little small. Short on budget as engine and susspension work has cost me over £900 in the last two months. Always interested in a swap / part exchange though.

    Xenon's are next week as the lights are terrible. Had special relay looms made and a kit pre tested and works great. Just waiting on it arriving and a rain free evening.

    Here is a short list of the changes that make all the difference.

    Hi Ben, Yes it is and got a good price on it for new as well. I couldn't afford a full SRI bumper and insert and I couldn't find anyone with just the SRI valance so I cut myself before it was painted to match. Looks a little different but its a good clean cut and high quality finish all round.

    Had mine painted not so long ago should have had it cut first!! Looks a tidy job, got any more pics of the rear mate.
    Are parking sensors a bit closer together than normal.

    Parking sensors are 2" closer than normal but work just fine. The reason for this is the sensors I got didn't come with curve inserts so would have left a 2/3mm gap on the sides which would look nasty.

    I've not got any more pics of the back, but I'll take a few over the weekend and post up on this thread. Any particular close ups?
