    Cesaro Update/Pics

    Nothing too exciting, no engine transplants or lambo doors for me but 3 weeks into mk3 ownership im a happy chap. The car was already in good condition (thanks to Kitch) and ive just given it a tidy up really: new number plates, de-mudflapped, facelift rear lights (thanks Kev), and a good going over with a variety of meguiars products.

    Future plans.. probably drop it on 15/16s and get a nice subtle exhaust at some point but im very pleased with it the way it is as its just a runabout, drives great too.

    Nice one, the newer rear lights make a hell of a difference.

    Excellent Cesaro Sten, nice to see another in the Club! Glad your keeping it subtle, as I've done with mine. 16's, 40mm drop and they really look a sporty yet subtle car.

    What did you use on your tyres? They look really shiney!

    Used Meguirs NXT polish/wax - very pleased with the results and its much easier to use than autoglym imo.
