    Default My 05 Vec SRI 150

    so this is my first introduction to my car..
    i got a good deal on it after so nearly buying a facelifted 150 with full xp kit on.
    anyways the car has a few problems which hopefully wont cost too much to fix or too problematic.

    how i bought it




    firstly fitted a pair of wing mirrors that wasnt hanging together by black sparky tape..oh and a wash













    so far had a few basic plans carried out which where remove rear griffin and fit a debadged grille.
    done while quiet at work (bonus getting paid to modify)





    plans include nothing too major but...
    front silvertec bulbs(ordered)
    get traction control switch working
    sort engine management light out(fault code p1110)
    got a clunking at rear but cant find where from
    new front and rear bumpers and damaged and missing front splitter
    poss lower next year but not drastically

    anyways thanks all for looking and enjoy

    debadging is a doddle matey... hairdryer, a soft cloth & some polish...

    heat the badges up to soften the glue, peel off, peel off any glue & polish away
