    New car time

    Afternoon all,

    Well last night i finally picked up my new car a 2008 1.9CDTI Sri Sporthatch 150.

    First impressions =

    From going from a 1.4 mk4 (my first car) to this "thing" was quite a step i must say, absolutely loving it though

    Bye bye VXR Castle Combe Edition - because it's done more laps of Castle Combe than most Bergs have of the Ring

    A lot of fun to be had with this i hope

    I want to get it boxed but whilst on the phone to the insurance company (Admiral) the other day i asked about a few mods, including a DTUK box and the bloke said he didnt "think" they covered them Plus it'd probably cost a second bomb to as they wanted another £75 for rear windows tinted alone

    I've had the car 24 hours and its filthy already! lol Plus the dealership quite clearly weren't very good at cleaning cars!
    All is well though as i've just spent over £100 on a detailing kit in prep for a day of detailing next saturday!!

    A nice set of Eibachs on there would go nicely
