water01 wrote:Wow that is awful lot of work. Congratulations.

I hesitate to ask but do you know how much it has cost you get to your car like this? Perhaps it is better not to know !! :)
Iv had a lot of help from friends, favours and haggling so this car has cost me no where near the induvidual RRPs. I calculated the costs to over £15000k but in honesty i have spent slightly over 5K all in :) Also ebay is deffo the way forward :) Im a strong believer that you dont have to spend megabucks to make ur car look great :)

Makes me feel proud to be in the same company.

Nice work Pete, and a darn fine car you've built yourself there - very well deserved 8)
on the contrary my friend. You may not think ur car is on the same level as mine but u have a much wider imagination then myself. Iv alsways loved that rear light mod and ESPECIALLY loved the fact you had the balls to do it. U deffo have one of the biggest ballsacks on this forum mate :)

Congratulations mate, those new wheels have really changed the look of your car, and moved it up another level! I think there's a bit of inspiration for all of us in your car which is why it's so popular!

I too would'nt mind air, its just you've got to be damn sure that your keeping the car for a while after that, because your never going to get your money back, and thats the conclusion i came to when i got told it would be just over £2k from rayvern hydraulics
