    car progress

    ok after the little "problem" at trax ( the car wouldnt start and nearly ran out of petrol ) ive decided over the last few days im keeping the mk3

    been looking into a few little trick mods and i can confirm there all go i start my new job as of the 19th Sept and then as of the 20th October the first mod will be bought


    the car will be off the road for one month as no tax or money for me but i can polish the tits off it that way and save my pennies

    as we speak the exhaust is off and being fettled with plus a de-cat


    then its towards coil overs / konis as i need the car LEVEL not arse High - if you have any advise on these please let me know

    few little body mods will be added - new front lights, grill, maybe bumpers

    but the engine will be the weapon


    pics to apear SOON



    p.s new battury was pu on today lol

    Ahh i see kev. Oh and before you get a new alternator - if you do - check the Regulator on the alternator as just that might be dodgy (borrow one of a friend or somthing - rather than paying for an alternator if it could be the regulator) you no what im sayin
