'Starjet' My GPS - Update 02/10/08 (PICTURE HEAVY!)

Right then, well...I thought that I should now start a new Members Motors thread as this is the start of moving onto the next level. I've also had a big tidy up so no more lose wires everywhere!!

Before I hadn't really done any 'proper' Mods as such and was holding back abit if i'm honest. but i've had a think and have decided that i'm going to go all out! So there's alot now in the pipeline!

Anyway - For those of you who don't know what she looked like origionally when I first picked her up on the 2nd August last year here are a few reminders!





Anyway: After (a few) modifications (of which most of the details can be found in the previous thread here...) This is how she currently looks as of 19:00 today As always opinions and comments are very much appreciated
























For anyone who is interested this is the current list of Modifications:
  • Lowered on Eibach Sportlines
  • Black Top Grille
  • Red Fiat Badges (all round)
  • Red Brake Callipers (all round)
  • GSR Induction Kit
  • Removal of Standard Airbox
  • Alpine IDA-X001 iPod Headunit
  • Apple iPod 80GB
  • Alpine MRP-T220 2x70Watt RMS Amplifier
  • Sony XPLOD 12' 1200Watt Subwoofer in Box (Thanks Tom!!)
  • Silvatech Silver Indicator Bulbs
  • Richbrook Anti-Theft Valve Caps (Some Idiot Stole My Original Plastic One's!)
  • Chrome Grille Surround
  • Punto Kick Plates
  • Punto Mats (All Round)
  • Thatcham Cat 1 Alarm
  • 6000K Xenon Kit.
Thanks alot for looking and I hope you like her
