    The coupe is coming along nicely

    I havent really posted an update of how the coupe is getting on since i bought it, so here it goes.

    This is how she looked when I 1st bought her




    Since then i have done quite a few mods, first thing i did was get rid of the lowering springs it had on and seen a fairly cheap set of coilovers on here so i went for them, money was a bit tight at the time and i really wanted to change the alloys but didnt have the funds.

    The next thing i decided to do was buy some fairly cheap mods, i firstly bought a new cd player and some irmscher door pins, also got a k&n panel filter, vectra c intake pipe and de restricted the airbox.

    A friend of mine then phoned me and told me about a friend who had some turbo alloys for sale and needed cash asap for them but needed some alloys for his, so i gave him £100 + my alloys for the turbo 1s, they went straight on and the next thing was the hid's. I was going to go for the 35w set but went for the brighter 50w set. After that it was off with the grille and instead of going for an irmscher grille i decided to get a cross hatch grille which was much cheaper. The last mod i have done which imo is the best and sets the car of was the alloys painted in gloss black, i had these done last month and have yet to kurb them lol.

    Future mods will be some little mods like pedals new mats smoked side repeaters and maybee a private plate. I wouldnt mind eventually putting a let in but i think i will probably buy a sri or coupe turbo instead lol

    here how she looks now
