Oooo nice
Pictures of when they're on please :D
Hopefully this weekend.
Got my MOT rocketing towards me so the things that will need be done

- New shocks and springs (Zeta-S)
- Toyosports cat back (to fix the blowing bodge job backbox (not me!)) This is literally the only system you can buy for this car. But it's an easy fit and pretty cheap so not fussed if it lasts just a couple of years
- Mintex 282mm discs and pads up front

Things I never considered
- Coilover rust protection (I think Meister R do a spray?)
- Front adjustable camber arms.
- Rear adjustable camber arms
- Rear LCAs (I can use the stockers, but they fugly)

Hopefully I wont be shredding my tyres with natural camber from lowering

Things for the future
- Wheels. No ideas on this. 15s are okay. 16s suit this car well. BBS?
- MG ZS 180 rear ARB. Pretty much THE mod to do.
- Window tints. I planned to do this February 2014. We're now midway through 2015.

Voila, she is done!
Took a little while to get the car where I like. We ran out of time so it's not perfect.





Saw this as well which has me worried slightly!


I'll get some better shots today

Overall. Very pleased. These coilovers ride extremely well.

Lots changed in the last 6-7 months but now the car has gone.
Developed a sudden electrical fault and wouldn't run... and I wasn't prepared to fix it. Poo, I really enjoyed driving it. Was getting fuel but not firing. The cost in ££ and time was too great.

Nevermind, I am picking up one of these this weekend or next week in a 3dr model. :cool::cool:

May as well update this, here is mine:



Das cleaning:


Das shine:


I really love it. 77+ MPG makes me pretty happy too!
Saying goodbye to the Honda wasn't difficult. Oddly enough, the only car is actually miss is my K11....

It gets a good clean every two weeks. In and out can usually be done in around 2.5hrs and keeps me busy on Saturday morning!
