    Default Car modifying nearly done

    Over the last couple of months i have been modifying my vec and now its almost done. Its been coming on very nicely, last pics i posted up were of when i got my alloys on last month, since then ive lowered the car, got a cat back system put on, painted the calipers and taken my tow bar off.
    Next step is some hid's and some interior mods.
    Please feel free to comment
    Also is there anywere on here where i can do an auto biography of the car.

    Looks well that Jonny son!
    personally i'd have them exhausts straightened, HID's as you say, possibly a VXR gear knob & steering wheel, That vxr rear diffuser thingy as u said and possibly other small irmscher items, door pins, pedals, tax disc holder, maybe those door pillar trim kits that i like!
    I think small things make a big difference.. maybe an irmscher badge for the boot!

    The car looks smart but i would advise anyone not to lower their car as it put uneven wear on the driveshafts. The car is designed to operate with the driveshafts horizontal with cv joints aligned so they are mostly driving in their neutral position. Lowering the car maens that the driveshafts from the gearbox are not in line withe the wheel axle i.e. they are not horizontal but always pointing upwards towards the wheel, this means constant misalignment of gearbox cv joint to outer cv joint and accelerated wear occurs particularly under heavey acceleration, ive been in a car like this and the driveshafts juddered when accelerating hard. i wouldn't do it myself but everyone to their own I suppose!
