Its about time I started the new diary, I've had the car a couple of weeks now, but never got round to taking any photos :lol: i took a couple yesterday.... I paid a little more than I wanted to, considering the car had no MOT, but I wasn' t going to let *Adz* scrap a mint 3-door sport when my 1.4 was going more rotten than a prostitute's clunge!!:heh:
Anyway, photos.

:lol: im not getting a new phone, its a blackberry bold :doh: but the camera is the least of my worries considering the rest of the stuff it does:D

the car is minty, there is no rust anywhere, and it passed its MOT 2nd time around, the CV joint needed doing, which i knew about, brakes were imbalanced, and the passenger washer jet didnt work :lol: oh, and my CO emissions were high, but after changing the rocker cover gasket and cleaning the plugs it was down to practically nothing! Result :becky:

It's somewhat of a rocket compared to my GLS, quite a step from 1.4mpi to 2.0 16v!!

Nice! Our sport should be ok with emissions as when we replaced the head we cleaned everything and done plugs etc!

Does look clean, any plans for it?

Just keep it on the road for now, there's some plans in the pipeline but I'm currently skint, so in a short time they will emerge. I have most bits I want for it, its just down to time and money now. I've finished uni now so I can concentrate a little bit more on it, but I don't intend on ploughing thousands into it!

Had a bit of fun with a CTR yesterday, I don't think he was expecting it to be a 2.0 :lol: ;)

cheers guys! I think the short term plans are to make it into a semi-GSI rep! I.E rear bumper and skirts, but leave the front bumper as it is, because its so damn nice :P I'm undecided what to do with the grille, as much as I like the rieger, everyone has it so i want something different, and I'm not overly keen on the GSI one either...

im pretty sure they dont make rieger grilles new anymore(?) which means if you get one itll be a rarer sight, i think reiger grille would great with the front bumper. anyway nice car. side repeaters look a bit wonky though or is that just me
