Thanks mate :)

I bought some kw v1's; second hand but I had them checked over before fitting. The handling is perfect.

I'm pretty sure FK highsport are around £300ish

My mate had some on his sport and said they were spot on, much better than the FK street.

Looking good on the KWs.

One of us should get their RWs refurb end in black, then we could be opposites.

So, after storing the lupo for 2-3 months, I decided to insure it for today.

And all has gone wrong already..

The ignition barrel is stuck.

And I smashed the windscreen.

Do they come off easily? I want to clean behind mine.

Mine had snapped at the bottom, so it's just 2 10mm bolts through the top; they're quite tight though.

Let the manifold get hot, then take out the bolts, that may help; just keep your hands clear ;)

I'll have to keep an eye out for this next time i'm back in Brackley visiting the in-laws, looks like a lovely example!

Looks loads better now it's on coilovers, nice leather too. :thumbsup:

Unfortunately my Lupo has gone now but if a silvery beige mini clubman flashes you then you know who it is. :lol:

Not a lot to report-

I lowered it more and realised it was a silly idea and raised it back up :paperbag:

I've poorly fitted a momo steering wheel, which I won't show you :thumbup:

Also as some of you may know I did break down on the way to ultimate dubs, which turned out to be the thermostat- all fixed and working!

(For now)

But I've been busy cleaning!

Also keep an eye out for me at GTI fest this weekend! I'll be entering my first show and shine! :s

Thanks for looking!
