The Car I Said I Would Keep Standard....

Recommended Posts

Love this car to be fair ormi.

I can get TRD anti roll bars through a local jap specialist but havent done it as i wondered if it was worth spending nearly £500 on them after import tax. What do you think?

to be honest mate the anti roll bars have made such a diffrence i cant recomend them enough but £500 is really expensive......

what about hotchkins roll bars they are ment to be just as good search on ebay and ebay motors mate you might pick up a really good deal....

sorry ormi :offtopic:

but i think green is going to replace white to be the new 'cool' colour, e.g. new press photos

ford focus RS

Mazda 2

Ford Fiesta

Lambo Murceilago

well i'd just like to say a big thanks to moley for sending me those amazing disks!!!

took 1 disk to cut the bar......

p0205101446.jpg

while i was at it i desided to attach brackets to the bottom of the intercooler as i only had it mounted from the top...

p0205101445.jpg

I think I want your car......

On the bottom of your grill you have some trims, would these fit onto the the trd front lip, or are they made for the TTE front bumper? or are they part of the bumper and im being stupid!

Sorry ormi i meant where was the plastic cut from lol im guessing it was the back of the bumper to fit the intercooler

Personally i love the stance you have now. I wouldnt lower the back. I think it looks best when the back is a tiny bit higher than the front but obviously not too much so it really stands out
