Very nice colour indeed. It looks proper tidy that.
I agree though, not too keen on the alloys. IMO they don't suit it.
Exhaust looks just right

Re: My New MK2 ELX :)

I kinda like the alloys, they might appeal a bit more once the car is lowered

Might possibly go for 16" on a 50 drop.

I could be wrong, but I swear I've seen that car about in Banbury, but you're in Manchester, so maybe I am. Looks very nice, though!

Oops, my mistake - I misread! Lol, still sure I've seen that car around though!
Must say I like those alloys!

Re: My New MK2 ELX :)

Cars looking fantastic.. You should get the drums painted a nice satin black.. maybe some new plates with no logos or anything, fixed on with sticky pads?

it's little things like that make a car

Ahh thanks mate

Was actually about to paint the drums insignia red, what do you think about that?

Can't wait to get some lowering springs on it.

Also looking to buy a GSR Induction kit for it too
