Wheel colour looks awesome mate, well impressed! Got the back sitting nicely too dude, I've taken the adjusters and the cups out of mine so it's just sitting on the spring, but it doesnt look at low as this! Full tank of petrol? ;)

Cant believe it's been 6months without updating this :o

Not much has happened, BBS were taken off in August and Snowtyres fitted :D got lifted abit for winter time.

Since it's now hit 185k and passed its mot without needing anything I thought id treat it to a mostly new coat of paint. Just leaving a rear quarter

and the rear end as they were done not long ago.

Hoping to get it back in a week or two, then it's full prep for UDubs 13.

New dishes coming for the BBS and some re-dropping I think.

Updates when I get it back, sooo excited hehe

As I’ve not really updated this much over the last year I thought I’d do a ‘Look Back’ over the last couple of month’s progress and happenings.

As the paint has been done 6months now I thought it was time I got a DA and start cutting it down.

I finally found the problem why the rear was a tiny bit lopsided, £8 later for both sides and all is well.

Gti brakes finally fitted to the fronts, rear disks are getting ready to be fitted. Don’t worry about the state of the dishes as these BBS get worked hard :Pbut they do get refurbed every winter  so I’m not that mean

My new interior is currently under fitment; hopefully I will be able to get it sorted in the next week or so. Then get the rears retrimmed to match :D

I will get some pics up when their nicely fitted and rears trimmed to match 

Plenty of things planned for the winter, so times going to be tight especially with trying to get UltimateDubsUK sorted out too.
