    Default new user, new car - my slightly euro'd vec

    wel just bought this car about 4 months ago and just adding bits to it as the weeks go on
    shes a pre frelift vec c 2002 2.0 dti
    gave it a quick detail and took a few photos
    very happy with it so far and think its quite clean for a 8 year old car
    looking forward to getting it finsihed but with mot coming up next month i didnt see the point lowering etc until after
    il let the pics do the talking....








    just recently got my plate switched onto it

    some close ups to show my cleaning, lol
    bonnet shot






    and some chops i done, still trying to decide on wheels
    alphards

    merc amg's

    porsche copiess (dont know the name off hand) i like them but still have to price them, im feeling theyd be the most expensive out of the 3.


    more pics when i get the wheels on and lowered

    ok so i got the car through MOt at the beginning on november so my next stped was to make a few changes to leave her sitting well and mainly to get the most out of the recent wheel change

    ok so i started off with a set of mercedes alphards wrapped in 35 profile tyres, the wheels had to machined etc to fit so once that was done i gave them a good coating of poorboys wheel sealant to keep them fresh/protected from salt and brake dust








    i then buffed them and they turned out 100%


    then once the wheels where sorted i set to lowering the car, i still havent found a brand of coilovers that i want and not wanting to buy any set i bought a set of springs for it, i wasnt preapred or even considering cutting the springs so i fitted them and was more than happy with the drop and a nice bit of natural camber on the back for goodluck..............i like!


    PIC WHORING FTW :yesmaster:












    ooooo camber.....

    i not fussed on the merc centres at all, but im trying to get diffrent ones, what do you think?







    ok so i had a bit of a play about with a few black iron cross stickers i had made, im not sure about the front one but rather than peel it off i thaught id keep it on for a few opinions on here, what do you think? keep or remove or place on the corner of the bonnet of bottom side of bumper?













    i liked this photo below






    so thats it....i know it wont tick evryones box but i thaught id try something diffrent than a typical bora, toledo or even a vectra c on snowflakes <---YAWN

    sothats all for now, next im planning exhausts and more euro'ness

    c&c
