Nice Work mate! If you don't mind me asking how much was it to get colour coding done?

Cheers mate. I only paid £120 for both bumpers,4 wheels, side skirts and grill.
And just had the badge backing done for free :P

But that's because I work in a bodyshop so that's why it's cheap  :signLOL:

Ha, yeah I guess that does make a difference. Where abouts are you based? I really want to get this done on mine and like the look of your work.

Yeah it does :signLOL: I'm based in reading but any decent bodyshop can do the same as what I've had done  :happy2:

Thanks mate, I'll try someone local. Looking forward to see what else you do.

Just a little update. I took a trip up to meet deako from here and purchased an s3 front brake set up. Just need to get them prepped ready to be painted and remove my rears as they are abit scabby.


Also bought a powerflex dogbone insert and a new genuine bolt just need to get it fitted but quite busy at work so can't get it on the ramp at the moment and it's too cold and wet to do it on the floor at home.


I had an led numberplate light from what I believe was a seat leon so I decided to try a non gen 1 from ecp and it works perfect wit no errors.

Right so I bought some led sides and decided to get them fitted last night after work as it's like a 5 min job...... Then it turned into a 35 min job.
So the bulbs I got were a little longer than the normal 501 bulb so I had to remove the indicator bulb holder to give me room to get it in the hole, so when I put the drivers side back in I knocked the bulb off inside the lense  :sad1:
So I went to my parents to borrow my dad's telescopic magnet to retrieve it but no luck, so I decided to remove the passenger 1 and see if it's magnetic which it's not and as I put it back in the light I dropped that 1 aswell  :fighting: (what a tw#t) and ended up removing the bumper and lights to turn them upside down to get the bulbs out. Grrrr
But it does look better with the led sides though.

cheers mate.

I managed to get my powerflex dogbone mount insert fitted on Saturday. It was a nice and easy 10 minute job as I had access to a ramp. The only problem I did have was when I opened the box the smaller washer was missing but luckily I was at work so I found one that was right for the job  :smiley:






I was amazed at how responsive the car feels now and there's very little if any cabin vibration
