Cool My Sporting MJET

Okay so owned this car since March of 2011 and just decided I'd post now, done a couple of bits already pretty standard things for these cars but I like them all the same



Done:

Tinting (Limo Black rear and back, 35% smoked front):



Powder coating of standard alloys (Satin black):





Will upload a pic of clean alloys when I take one today

Front grill vinyl:




Eibach sportline lowering springs



Pic taken day of install, waiting for them to bed in for better pic!

To do:

Forge intercooler and possibly induction??

Remap

MOT just flagged a slightly pitted brake disc so I'm thinking upgrade brakes soon to cope with remap ?

New wheel bolts, possibly red or black??

Got a new pic showing the alloys and ride height better from last night before the snow got to it This is 2 days after they were installed!

Honestly I find the ride better with sportlines, the change is unbelievable with regards to body roll and I wouldn't even call it a hard ride...just firm

Re: My Sporting MJET

Quite a tidy motor. Personally I'd take off those bump strips on the doors though, would look much better.

I'm jealous of the heavy M-Jets and how low they sit on sportlines

I've been debating with myself whether to for a while I quite like the way they break the side up and can see them being a nightmare to put back on if I don't like the look with them off?

Very glad I took the forums advice on the sportlines, they really are very impressive for the money for both looks (Bloody arch gap is a joke on these lmao ) and handling!

Re: My Sporting MJET

Quick update, chromed/silver indicator bulbs arrived today so fitted those Not a massive change but I like the subtle things!





And yes I did move the car between pictures, Damn side road where I park has a hell of a camber where a flowerbed used to be and couldn't get jack in properly lmao...

This has also made my drivers side new spring bed in quicker which could be a problem :/?

What do you mean the pics aren't working? And the 20mb limit on pics in my gallery has been reached so it won't let me upload the recent ones into there.

To get past that you can either donate to the forum (even as little as a pound) or attach them using the paper clip when you post
