    my car

    Just thought I'd post up a few pics of my car,
    its a midnight black 1.8 SRi,
    not finished yet but then again whos modified car is?
    But its getting to the point now where I am pleased with it and proud to be drvivng about in it
    Ive had it for about 7 months now so the mods Ive been doing/wanting to do have taken a little longer than I want them to as Im only 18 and work on a farm so the money isnt great,
    It doesnt really help that I'm payin over £3000 TPFT either!

    anyways hope you like it!

    P.s ignore the Polo in the pics thats my mates car who was taking the pictures

    it does look good mate, dont take this to heart....
    you are paying over 3k tpft ok... your list of mod all include cosmetic changes?
    not a penny spent under the bonnet?

    a car can look good but it needs the balls to walk the walk too

    Well I was going to buy a coupe turbo but as my first car and first year of driving most insurance companys wouldnt even look at me never mind quote me, the cheapest company I found wanted over £4500 TPFT for a coupe turbo so that was a no go, my idea is most of the mods can be moved over to a coupe or cabby turbo, so when I can afford the insurance this will be getting sold and I'll be moving to one of them,
    If all goes to plan anyway
