    what to do next on my cabriolet??

    Hi guys and girls
    I've just started a new job in which my wages have doubled, which means i've got a bit of money spare to spend on the cab.

    The thing is i can't really think of what to do. i need a bit of inspiration.

    The things ive done to the car already are:

    Lowered 50mm all round
    Veccy c pipe mod
    derestricted air box
    Courtney panel filter
    Lmf arm rest re-trimmed in cream leather
    Se2 17" alloys

    [img=http://img221.imageshack.us/img221/5977/22092007017hk1.th.jpg]

    Depends if you go for the GM fogs or the aftermarket ones.

    I would guess around £450-500 with aftermarket fogs, £600 with GM fogs


    BMC has the roll over hoop faring

    few suggestions

    get your rollover hoops trimmed in the same cream as the seats...
    irmy bonnet extension...
    either GSI or SRi-Turbo (prodrive kit) bumper
    mk5 Penta or VXR alloys

    what engine do you have too? may be time to work on that


    EDIT - heres the pics for those too lazy to click the links like me

    I only have the the 1.8 so i don't think it would be worth spendin the money under the bonet. i could be wrong but to be honest is it really worth tryin to tune a 1.8 n/a??

    I'm not to sure really on the faring just a personal thing.


    Would Vxr fit under my arches with the drop i got??

    Does someone fancy doin photoshop for me pls with the vxr alloys and the penta??

    I was thinkin of goin down the sat nav console route with the 5 inch monitor but it seems like a lot of work cos i only have one din slot cos of the soft top controls.

    sat nav console would look good - I have one (click garage to see!) and its quite subtle (until you colour code it of course!) way of getting a screen in there. I only use 1 DIN slot as I have a Sony MEX-R1 DVD headunit in there as my sole headunit.

    as for tuning, well I guess that depends on how much you want to spend.. you could always turbo it
