Re: What's your plans for your GP for the next 12 months?

January: insurance!

February: get abarth springs fitted

March: will most likely save for wheels

April: Save

May: Save

June: Wheels will probably be around here

My plans have just been ruined to this as i've lost my Sunday bar job (which was for car stuff really), so just my normal wage coming in... making the saving process 4x as long!

EDIT: in and between the wheels etc, i'll be spraying the front grille (have the paint already) vinyl on the front bumper, abarth lights, abarth dial cluster surround and some other bits and bats

Re: What's your plans for your GP for the next 12 months?

Just ordered H&R springs, so I'll be fitting those any day now. (Feb-March)

Booked in to a vinyl specialist to put some matt-black vinyl on the bumper.(Feb-March)

I'm still deciding whether to order a badgeless grille or just paint the upper grille in black.

Turbo from the Abarth version is on it's way here too, but that'll have to wait until my warranty runs out

Going to buy Eibach sportlines on the 21st of Jan
Just ordered new sidelights to finish of the new lightage!
Want to work on the interior...probably copy Matt and the stitching and would love to change the colour of the dials to white!
An arm rest is also on the agenda.

Re: What's your plans for your GP for the next 12 months?

lower to 40mm ebach springs

take off the rear spacers, can't live with them coz they're spoiling the handling,

try and get a new sports exhaust, any suggestions welcome, coz i just can't find one on the web for the GP,

hopefully change the lights to black angeleyes (awaiting slagging)

Re: What's your plans for your GP for the next 12 months?

well carl.. It ain't cheap! Around 300 mark for back box, then depends what you class a full system as, manifold, sports cat, centre section... Near 1-1.5k, I remember pricing centre section and back box up for my Stilo with a discount from GSR was round 600 and the cat and manifold are the expensive bits

theres a magnaflow dealer round here (magnaflow are the makers of the exhaust for TVR) so i might see what they can do when i get my wheels and that sorted.
