Re: The cheek of it!

Well Dan, ill let you know Im not touching the bodywork. The only exterior mod to change will be the wheels. Im hunting around for a suitable set of 15s. possible 16s. Reason for loosing the 17s is because they slow the car so much.

Im thinking coupe 20v turbo 16s or something else in 15s. Probably black

Its the interior im concentrating on

Re: The cheek of it!

it has crossed my mind

But tbh I cant be arsed with the hard work and insurance wouldnt touch me so its not really a worthwhile conversion.

Ide drop the 1.8 16v in though.

Re: The cheek of it!

You'll find that if you put the steel wheels back on you'll upset all the 1.6 owners with ease with the new gearbox on

Trust me, I know from experience
