Been a long time since i updated the thread and i have done a fair bit to the car.
Decided to go down the r32 road so bought a genuine r32 rear bumper and got to work.
Had it painted with the reflector sections smoothed out and had a 3 inch turbo back exhaust made up to fit so the car now looks like this.

Also had a h&r cup kit fitted which gave the car a nice little drop .

Just last week i had every bush on the car swapped over to powerflex bushes including the anti-lift kit and it has really firmed everything up.

Really like the way it feels now and it grips and goes around corners so nicely.
Next up is brembo 18z calipers as the standard brakes just cant cope.
Loba hpfp , airtec intercooler and beach buggy hybrid k03 also on the to-do list hopefully before end of the summer.
