    Gave the workhorse abit of a make over

    Wel driving a totally standard car lasted 4 months! got bored so decided to make it look alittle bit more pleasing to the eye.
    And yes before you all say it would look better if it was a 3 door and its a diesel i know this, but this is my workhorse, and they only did the early 17 tdi's in 5 door.
    Here it is the day i bought it.

    And these are a quick few pics i have taken after a wash today. i bought the 17s off ebay dirt cheap with 4 brand new tyres on and sprayed them myself, then i bought badgles grill and finally fitted them all yesterday along with a set of coilovers!
    Think it sits pretty wel and its not a hard ride at all which suits me down to the ground, as i didnt want a harsh ride with all the drivin i do in it.


    For all your bodywork in the north west,
