Mark's Arosa Sport - SOLD

Recommended Posts

Been on the forum for about a year now but have never got round to posting much about my own wee arosa, so here goes:

Bought it March 2010 with only 23000 miles on it :o absolute steal for a 51 plate. Just been doing subtle upgrades as i'm a rather skint student :P Passed my test in March and havent stopped driving since, love my wee car

Mods so far:

Badgeless front grille
Stubby Aerial
Apex springs dropped 40mm
Kenwood head unit
Replaced front speakers and fitted rear speakers
Scorpion Exhaust
K&N air filter
Black rear Arosa lights and indicators
Pop out rear windows
Wind deflectors
15" Viper alloys on 205 T1R proxes
Painted calipers

Still to do:

Spray and fit spoiler
Spray front and back bumper
Re-spray bonnet
Buy bonnet bra


Now for the pics :)

Fitting Scorpion exhaust at my mates house. The ramps saved so much time :)

Not really thinking about doing much more to the car, but I would like a bit more power out of it :P

Cheers guys, been working hard on it :)

My arosa came with the holes drilled in the door frames already, just had to get the bolts to insert in the wholes from my local seat garage :)

Does your arosa not come with the holes already drilled?

Went a road trip up to Skye with some mates over the summer :) The roads up there were brilliant for the arosa

What gold bits? It's easy enough to check, just peel back the window seal when the door is open and you'll be able to see.

If the hole is circular and not hexagonal then you'll need to get the bolt inserts from your local garage, only cost me 2 quid :)

Thinking about getting some bodywork done in the next few weeks by a company called DM bodyshop based in Glasgow. They specialise in VW's and campervans :)

Anyone had any experience with them? :)

It's very nice... Very good additions :thumbup:

Got to say mate the car is looking good, ive thought about doing both bottom halfs of front and rear bumpers gloss black, looking good keep the updates coming :)

Cheers mate :) what colour is your arosa the now? You could always photoshop it to make sure it looks good before you go ahead with it :)
