Hi all!
I'm new on here, so thought I'd post some pics of my baby. :D



I'm currently in the process of some surgery on it. The mods include a 16v lump, new steelies, pugsport exhaust and billies woo hoo
I'll post some pics with its new 16v heart and wheels some time soon.

P.S. what are peoples opinons on the front bumper? not sure if i prefer a standard look or not?:confused:

Welcome to the forum mate. :) Get signed up as full member :D

Was just about to say everything you've just mentioned. It looks in quite good nic. Would do the mods you've mentioned and go back standard on the front bumper. Maybe drop it alittle. Good buy though :)

Will you be attended the French Car Show this year? Need as many rallyes as possible

When is it btw?

I'll be down on the sat for a watch and on the track for the first time on the sunday. :) Should be good fun.

Looks really nice and clean - I would put a standard front bumper back on it though - that one really doesnt look right on the S1 - it looks too round and the S1's are very square. Just looks really weird - apart from that looks a good buy!

P.s - Welcome:)

i'd put on the standard bumper back on, and get the rallye decal for the bonnet ;)

02-04-2006, 06:04 PM
