out with the old and in with the new :)

Recommended Posts

right guys last august i got my first car a 1.0mpi Lupo got it for the silly price of £420

this is how i got her 15" nasty alloys and 55-60 mm lowering springs and nasty little wing mirrors


so i got bored of how chavy it looked with the 15" multi fit alloys made it look then ended up with 5 sets of 13" steel wheels :paperbag:

after a fight with a badger i had to buy a new lower bumper, rad, rad fan and slam panel (lower bumper was from a lupo sport so had fogs and was colour coded)

other than getting the fogs working the pic below is how i sold her !!! sold it for £800 !!!


i got my new car last month :thumbup:

bought it after a friend sent me a link over facebook as i had been talking to them about my shopping list of things i wanted in my new car.

Dark blue MK2 Arosa Sport with less than 75k miles for less than £1500 less than 6 owners as standard as possible (you wouldn't believe how rare they are)

so this is the car i got


Dark blue MK2 arosa sport with 73,600 miles 5 previous owners standard other than some nasty hellfrauds wheels and a de badged grill and all this for

well within my budget :thumbup:



so after having the car for 5 days i spotted a set of month old coillovers on a facebook page for just £80!!! so when my friend asked me to go with him to

London for some sound stuff for his car i hitched a lift and stopped off on the way back for my coillovers (lucky friend found a mk1 arosa boot in the blokes

shed and got it for silly cheep and a little bonus there was an MS design spoiler bolted on it) so when i had a week off work i put them on and borrowed my

mates BMW E30 BBS 14" 6.5j with 165.60.14's on and with a little bit of playing with the front and with a bit of camber I managed to get the tyre past the arch

on the front and wind them all the way down :thumbup:

I have more plans for the car so il try and keep you posted

:excl: HID's next week and more lows very soon :excl:

thanks for reading if you see me around or at a show give us a wave :wave:

(i will be on club stand with Lincs.V.A.G for a few shows) :thumbsup:

I love the look of your arosa pal, what are those wheels in your latest post?

They look fantastic!

I've only had mine for a few weeks, it's supposed to be a daily but I've already got a bit of a shopping list building up...

All the best with her, I hope to see more snaps in the future :)
