    Lowered 30mm on Eibachs

    Not too keen on the grille tho, think it looks too dark. What are your thoughts guys?

    Anyone colour coded an Irmscher grille?

    cheers

    I was just about to say that and the site boomed out! :roll:

    Its certainly a smart looking motor, and i quite like the black grill to be honest.

    What does the exhaust sound like?

    Love the sound of a real engine after having a 1.2 16v for the last 2 years.

    The exhaust sounds a bit like a Subaru inside but more like an M3 outside - if that makes sense.

    No complaints so far, except that i really want to get my amp installed but can't find a way in to the engine from inside, and drilling looks dodgy as i can't see whats behind.

    Yeh taken the glove box out to get my AV units in, but lthere is no easy way of seeing what i'd actually be drilling into as the area behind the glove box is covered in wires and is just impossible to see.

    Couldn't see an obvious gromit near the bonnet release, but i'm taking the driver side footwell air-vents at the weekend so should be able to see better then.

    cheers
