Few changes to my car.

Ive made a few changes to the car today. Ive changed the 205 Speedlines to S2 Steelies. (Wheel bolts courtesy of Mr Jimmers.) Replaced the check strap on my passenger door so it holds itself open, no more paint tins

I bought a set of S2 steels from Ben Tearle a while ago, had them sandblasted and painted white recently.

Wheels getting new Kumho Solustyres fitted. 175/60 R14s.



Jacked up and new steels going on


Photos with new steels on





(Sorry for bad quality took them on my phone )

Needs a wash but since i have to go to work il do it tomorrow instead. Im really pleased with the steels, driving it seems more responsive and overly better if you get what i mean?

Im really happy with the result. Just need centre caps to finish them off. Oh and a fresh set of genuine decals are on the way too!

Updated with photos!

Added a 2" pugsport which i bought from Marc4rg a while ago. Finally got round to fitting today since it was blowing and one of the rubber hangers snapped yesterday and my exhaust was literally a few inches off the ground.

After i gave it a quick clean




Hole in the other 3" i removed



And after a few choice swear words from removing the bodged heat shield which vibrated at 2.5k rpm. It was fitted.




Again sorry photos arent brilliant, took on my phone.

I do need a new sealant ring and some new harder exhaust mounts and also a new bolts to hold the centre pipe to the manifold, then it will be perfect. Im getting those tomorrow and fitting

Its alot quieter on idle than the other one, but of course this one has no holes in.

Group N mounts are enroute, cue dash rattle and complaints from the missus.

Comments welcome chaps. (No you cant have photos of my gf either!)
