    Davee's 2.2 Coupe

    I've been a member of AOC for a while now and thought it was about time I put together an autobigraphy of the changes I've made to the car during my ownership.....

    This was the spec (and a few pics) when I first bought the car:-


    Spec...

    2001 2.2I 16v Bertone edition Coupe
    Titan Gold
    Full cream leather interior (heated front seats)
    Cruise control
    Irmscher gearknob and steering wheel
    Standard Vauxhall sound system

    Modifications:

    Full Irmscher bodykit
    Irmscher grill
    Raceland coilover suspension
    18" BK799's
    Powerflow catback exhaust
    K&N 57i kit













    Then the modifying began....

    If its got pistons or tits, its gonna be expensive!!

    Soon after buying the car, I put a standard de-restricted airbox in place of the K&N and gave it a good service.......

    This is how it looked at various shows throughout 2009:-

    Billing:- Got in the top 5




    Trax 09:
