These are some pics i took today while out a blast with a mate and his evo 6.
So far mods have been 17 inch BSA Racing alloys and some clear side repeaters, not much really but future mods are, koni adjustables, tinted windows, phase 2 gsi sideskirts and angel eyes (what colour angel eyes should i get let me know) and a huge Alpine install. WATCH THIS SPACE

Took some pics after a clean with the meguiars car cleaning kit and put on the mk3oc sticker, this weekend will see the underbonnet getting a bit of a makeover hopefully if the weather is ok

lookin good man, IMO the LEDs/neons are quality as long as you do them properly, i.e. - no multicolour flashers :lol:
bit of lowerin should sort it right out an all :beer:

if you insist on having them neons then they need fitting further under the car so you cant see the tubes.

also i would reccomend getting an aftermarket inlet manifold if your after a bit more performance out if it, you can gain 12-15bhp from fitting a mantzel/dbilas or mvaux inlet.

ill be putting the sideskirts on soon so that will cover up the neon tubes at the sides, the front and back ones cant be seen anyway. A dbilas manifold is in the works but it costs a small fortune and ther is 2 different kinds for 2 slightly different engines and im not sure which one i need to get, will have to phone courtney and see which one i need, guaranteed it will be the more expensive one at just under £1000. Ill be doing the exhaust side of things 1st with a 4 branch manifold, proper decat, racing tube and back box soon
