New car, new project.....New thread I suppose!
Now I'm going to admit I'm not doing a specific project. It's just a modification diary so every can read and have a laugh.... just like with my old diary
Here's the link if anyones looking for it. It's an Astra mk4 white 1.4 16v
As alot of you has probably been thinking when reading my previous diary... (I'm pointing at you lot with the bigger engines and turbo's!). You've probably had thought "this kids wasting his time and money" that may be so...so.....very true but I do not regret any of it, had a damn good laugh and learnt alot about cars, engines suspension etc, was thinking of getting it turbocharged, because I wanted to be different, but looking at the price of these is rather high... So instead of being different I just wanted power! :P with minimum cost and effort, so I went down the easier path
been looking for a coupe for a very long time! (I was waiting for insurance to go down which it finally did). And I found a nice silver one on auto trader in a dealer (independant) turns out that was poo as the spoiler was broken & bonnet wouldn't shut properly...had to do some sort of WWF jump of the rope style to shut it ANYWAY.... took a look this one:
and I liked it! Got Madmonkee to check it over for me too, to make sure, and everything got the thumbs up!
Got the car! Must admit at first I was driving it like a granny everywhere afraid that the boost was going to launch me into a wall unsuspectedly, me not being about to control it... but no I was very surprised. Think it needed some attention really. Filled her up with V power and put some Redex in her and its alot better already!
here she is at home!
After getting her I've been grinning all day! and people kept commenting on that well what can I say?! I was well chuffed I've finally go the car of my dreams! no kidding I loved the coupe! I think I have my brother to blame here though, but he's always had other nice cars but the mk4 coupe always managed to catch my eye and since before getting into cars I've loved the look of it...
Oh my I've jibbered abit much here... going to seperate this into two different posts lol....
